University House has a new venue! Lionel’s Cafe on Grant Street, Southbank has opened its doors. Flanked by busy St. Kilda Road and bustling Southbank, Lionel’s is a sanctuary open to all: staff, students, artists and public alike. The cafe has an industrial feel, with a tucked away courtyard that come Spring will be the most sought after spot on campus. With specialist coffee and freshly prepared food, Lionel’s is the place to visit.
Opening hours are: 8:00am – 3:00pm Monday to Friday
University House @ Lionel’s will also play host to programmed events in the multi-purpose performance space at Grant Street, featuring everything from lounge piano, jazz, and contemporary music to polished cabaret works, the new and avant-garde, performance art, as well as incorporating a mix of international, local and student performances. The site can expand and retract and can be used as a bar and lounge for up to 80 people, a theatre space that seats 120.
Sonia Clutterbuck has taken on the challenge of Supervisor with a supporting cast of University House staff. If you work in or around Southbank or are seeing a show in the Arts Precinct, drop in for a treat and a coffee at UH @ Lionel’s!
