Presented in the bank vault of an 1860's Gold-Rush era State Savings Bank, seated in Edwardian, high-back, velvet parlour couches, leather arm chairs and surrounded with decadence and grandeur, The Vault is an exclusive theatre with a capacity of only 20 seats per show. 

Owned and run by the management of Speakeasy HQ and the Apollo Theatre, The Vault is located at number 2 Mercantile Place, Melbourne. True to reputation, Knuckles and the gang at Speakeasy HQ have made The Vault harder to find in case of a raid, but superbly attended once you're there. Upon arrival, tell the door person that Knuckles sent you. Let our expert staff take care of the rest.
