After the sell out success of The Inaugural Melbourne Circus @ EQ Restaurant + Bar NYE 08, EQ is bringing the circus back to town this NYE with a carnival spectacular– and you’re invited to the party!

Southbank, Melbourne, VIC, Australia

EQ Restaurant + Bar invites you to step through the velvet curtains & into a creatively themed & decorated world of Burlesque. With fire performers lighting up the night, risqué cabaret shows sure to raise an eyebrow & sword swallowing stuntmen all performing just for you. Including all the style, humour & raunchiness of your local 1920’s House of Burlesque, EQ Restaurant + Bar offers a night of death defying acts & breathe taking performances. And on top of all this, there is nowhere better to view the fireworks!

The concept for The Melbourne Circus @ EQ Restaurant + Bar originated because the site which the Arts Centre is situated on is steeped in entertainment history. The site has played a host to a number of circuses since 1887 when Cooper and Baileys Great American International Circus pitched its Big Top on the site. In the early 1900’s a permanent amusement area – Olympia - was erected by the Fitzgerald Brothers Circus, and in 1907 Wirth Brothers Circus took over the site where it remained for the next 50 years until it was destroyed by fire. The site has always been Melbourne’s home of the arts & entertainment, and will always continue to bring pleasure.

EQ’s event space will be transformed into a spectacular arena housing the evening’s main acts; 4 originally designed cabaret shows, along with roving performers, bands & DJs playing the tunes until 3am. For the best views of the city’s New Year’s Eve fireworks, The Inaugural Melbourne Circus at EQ Restaurant + Bar is the place to be. Guests will feel part of the circus as fire twirlers, contortionists and magicians mingle with adult guests as they enjoy the live bands, DJs and other entertainment.
