The Peel

One of Melbourne's oldest gay bars, recently updated its door policy to favor gay men. (Women can expect to queue for half an hour, even if the venue is quiet). Also currently seeing an evolution music wise - expect top 40 and retro hits, plenty to sing to, but not a lot of club tracks.
Thursday nights sees a younger, twinky crowd, and picks up from 1am. Friday and Saturdays tend to pack out after other venues close - all roads lead to the Peel, as the advertising says! Has a 24/7 license, so closing times are approximate, if they're busy they stay open later, although entry is not guaranteed late at night. Shows before midnight on Saturdays.
