Go Back to The Future 80s and 90s Every Thursday Night

Are you looking for things to do in Victoria? Victoria can seem like a pretty sleepy town after dark, especially on weeknights! Sometimes, you just want to get out of the house, connect with friends and start unwinding before the weekend officially starts. If you love 80s and 90s music, would appreciate a bit of throwback nostalgia or any opportunity to break out your favourite throwback pieces that have been sitting in storage since high school, these nights are for you! Back to the Future 80s and 90s nights at Yates Street Taphouse are totally rad when it comes to finding fun things to do in Victoria at night.

How Should I Pack for My Trip Back in Time?
Nothing! No Cover, No RSVP necessary. Just dress in your 80s or 90s best or come as you are!
