Bars, Cool Sh*t, Melbourne / 9 August 2023

Melbourne’s nightlife is about to change. This September, MAHO MAGIC BAR is speeding into town. After wowing crowds in Sydney, Adelaide, and Darwin, now it’s Melbourne’s turn to enjoy a Tokyo-inspired experience.


Bringing Tokyo to Melbourne

Nestled in bustling Chinatown, MAHO MAGIC BAR promises to recreate Tokyo’s vibrant nightlife. But it doesn’t stop there. Not only will you find mischief and mayhem, but you’ll also get to enjoy cocktails and laughter.


Where Magic Comes to Life

Magic takes the center stage in this unique setting. Japan’s best magicians, including enchanting performers like Shirayuri and Kaori Kitazawa, will captivate you with their intricate illusions. So, prepare to be dazzled, because these magical performances are ready to create an atmosphere unlike any other.

More Than Just Drinks

The bar also brings a new twist to cocktails. Master mixologist Jun Nakamura has curated a menu of premium Japanese libations. And there’s even a special menu that offers a surprise magic trick. So, if you have an adventurous spirit, your taste buds are in for a treat.

A Boost for Melbourne’s Nightlife

The MAHO MAGIC BAR is not just about entertainment. As part of the City of Melbourne’s Dusk till Dawn program, it aims to light up the city’s streets. Lord Mayor Sally Capp sees its potential to draw visitors to the Chinatown precinct. So, supported by the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund and the Melbourne Chinatown Association, the bar is set to boost local business.
