Pride Of Our Footscray Community Bar

Footscray, VIC

Pride of our Footscray

A safe and inclusive place for queer people, Pride of our Footscray is known for their friendliness, fun and amazing live entertainment.

Upon entering Pride of our Footscray, you’ll discover two venues in one! The main bar is home to a huge dancefloor with flashing lights, rotating DJs and live drag performances, while Superbia Cocktail Bar provides handcrafted cocktails and a solace from the hustle and bustle of the dancefloor.

Famous for their weekly live drag shows at Legendary Fridays and Saturday Night Party. With their gig roster reading like a who’s who of performers in Melbourne drag, it’s a great place to catch some live shows.

Infamous for their hilarious Wednesday night Pride Drag Bingo with heaps of prizes up for grabs, including a $50 drink card! Will you be (un)lucky enough to spin the wheel of misfortune or take dip into the drag hostesses Sparkly Pink Box?

A safe and inclusive place for queer people, Pride of our Footscray is known for their friendliness, fun and amazing live entertainment. Bringing its drag performers to the front and centre, Pride of our Footscray puts on a regular ensemble performance that’s filled with performers of all shapes and sizes.

“Pride of our Footscray is so supportive of all types of drag and encourages diversity,” said Max Drag Queen when we interviewed them about the venue. “They have been big believers of booking different and unique performers. The age diversity is great too; I love being able to perform any song from any decade and have it be received well.”

If you’ve been thinking about getting into drag performing, Pride of our Footscray offers a plethora of opportunities for any new performers in the field. With their monthly event ‘Everything’s a Drag’ allowing up and coming drag performers to express themselves on the stage, it’s the perfect place to watch emerging drag artists of all kinds.

With exciting rotating monthly events like Queer Comedy (the queerest stand-up night in Melbourne!), Poetryspective, and the upcoming Let’s Get Trivial quiz nights (hosted by Melbourne drag icon Sabrina Babyslut), there is always something new on the calendar at Pride.

“Pride of our Footscray is a very important venue for the scene here in Melbourne,” Max continues. “It’s a safe queer space out in the western suburbs of Melbourne that supports and exposes all types of drag to the locals of the area.”

Check them out at 1/86-88 Hopkins St, Footscray – they’re open every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday with additional opening hours based on the event calendar. Visit their website here.
