Sacred sites

It’s not often that a nightclub is heritage-listed, but we like breaking down conventional thinking here in Southbank.

Now housing Fabrique bar, 272 City Rd was built in 1880 and is one of only three Victorian warehouses that were given decorated facades that remain intact, in the South Melbourne area.

The high standard of design of the façade has been partially modified but has maintained its classical look.
The architectural style of Classical Revival is quite uncommon, particularly in industrial areas, as this building was. 

You have to wonder whether the partygoers spending their nights here really appreciate it!
