Venue Opening Last Sunday

At the end of frantic months setting up, we opened doors for the first time Sunday. Had a great turn-out including crew from old Yak Bar days (Stalk’s bar which was just around the corner). Stalk is now our chief barman for this run of Sunday shows til Christmas. Doors open at 1pm, music from 2. Guest artists, spoken word reading, bag-pipes, acoustic solo tunes & band, sausage sizzle & this Sunday the raffle’s back. Make your way to 208 Johnston St Collingwood & join us for a great arvo in true Yak community spirit.

This Sunday – Opening Show

It’s a temporary, restricted liquor license, but we’re excited to be opening for the first time nonetheless. This Sunday the first of 5 in a row til Christmas. Doors open 1, show between 2 & 5, close round 7. We’re working like crazy here, making the venue as good as it can be for the first one. ‘lil rough & ready but set for a great time. Here’s a shot taken yesterday. We’ve used pallets to build the stage & bar.
