Whitehart’s 7th Birthday: Free Pizzas and $7 Cocktails

Whitehart, Melbourne’s urban oasis, is excited to announce its 7th birthday bash this Saturday, 16 March. Since its inception, Whitehart has been a symbol of creativity, blending industrial aesthetics with vibrant murals, digital projections, and lush greenery.

The venue’s heavy industrial atmosphere is transformed into a warm and inviting space through the thoughtful integration of ferns mounted on the walls. Staghorn and elk-horn ferns have been carefully chosen, paying homage to the mystical “white hart” that inspired the bar’s name.

The festivities promise to be a memorable experience, featuring an eclectic lineup of entertainment. The Now Here This All-Star Band, a jazz ensemble led by Ed Moon and Monrxe’s captivating vocals, will take the stage with a fusion of funk-filled bass, percussive finesse, scorching guitar licks, keyboard and synth soundscapes, and mesmerising saxophone and trumpet performances.

Adding a modern twist to the traditional choir, the Halo Vocal Ensemble, directed by Liona Tatafu, will showcase transcendent performances from a diverse lineup of Melbourne artists. Their recent stint at the National Gallery Victoria has only heightened the anticipation for their collaborative and collective space.
