Inside, ornaments and charms embellish the Art Deco space. Tutu-inspired light fittings sit above the bar; there’s gold-gilded velvet furniture; and rows of jewellery boxes, candelabras and intricate vases add a touch of old-world charm.

A basement bar underneath is accessed through a Narnia-like wardrobe. Push aside the fur coats to reveal the hidden entrance. It’s luxe, with velvet curtain-covered walls, plush lounges and candlelit tables.

Trivia Night in Melbourne CBD

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine etc. Janet is a well-respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.
