For the duration of the 26th of March until the 11th of April 1000 £ Bend will be teaming up with the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival to bring you The House of Food and Wine!  

Our normal pound operations will pause from the morning of Sunday the 26th of March and the venue will undergo some *minor/major* changes before the festival kicks off on Friday the 31st of March.  For more info on festival events and to get yourself some tickets head on over to The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Website

We are super excited to be a part of the festival but we also can't wait to see all of you back here on the Wednesday the 12th of April when 1000 £ Bend is back to it's normal self and ready to roll into the Melbourne International Comedy Festival!  Check out the shows we have lined up for you here!


1000 £ Bend is essentially a reimagining of St Jerome's - Melbourne's beloved laneway haunt for over five years - adorned with a few old relics from its walls for comforting posterity.

1000 £ Bend is a hybrid venue housing a bustling cafe, restaurant and bar in the front, a Gallery space in the back, a chapel and events space called The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo, and an upstairs cocktail bar - The Unknown Union - open Fridays and Saturdays from 5pm. 

With early bird morning coffee at $3 and a hearty lineup of breakfast items, an unmatched burger and Slice Girls pizza menu ($10 Burger & Pizza Night on Tuesdays) plus a well-fed drinks list, 1000 ₤ Bend is the CBD's go-to laid back gathering place. Don't forget the free WiFi and notoriously good playlist.
