Charlton's Karaoke & Pool Hall
Named after one of Australia's all-time great snooker players, Eddie Charlton, this seemingly endless bar/pool hall is now home to Melbourne's new generation of pool sharks. If shooting pool isn't your thing, Charltons also offers a range of other entertainment
Karaoke kicks off at 10.30pm every night, most of its clients are Australian-born singers who have no qualms about belting out numbers to a packed bar of strangers.
Location: Getting there can be a small challenge; a very dark shady laneway near the corner of Little Bourke and Russell St and a rather disturbing elevator ride to level 3. It's not something you would casually walk by.
