I can't review it really because anyone wearing 'dangerous shoes that are against OHS' was not allowed in, which was everyone of us. Any open-toed shoe is called a 'dangerous sandal' smh. It looked very quiet but I guess they are smashing glasses all the time? I'll give it 3 stars because at least i was not injured lol.

Miss Jay is amazing and a whole mood. Staff can be a cultural appropriative on specified nights. Overall it is a fun time and the drinks are good. 😂

I had the best time here and for that would give 5 stars. However, paid $5 to cloak my French vintage fur coat not realising that 15 minutes later the club would close. So 15 minutes later, back I go with my numbered key tag BUT my coat is no where to be found. The person I spoke to spun lies saying maybe it was being held in another room out the back and so I said great, let’s go and have a look, and after that their energy changed and suddenly they started to be unkind. They took my phone number and said they would look at the camera footage to see who may have taken my coat (also a lie), I got a text message from someone called chichi but I don’t know if that’s legit or not. I contacted them again the next day but never heard back. Their cloak system seems well organised so I don’t believe someone “accidentally” got the wrong coat, I think the probability that one of the many staff working the cloak room also loved my gorgeous coat and decided to take her home. Moral of the story, don’t cloak your gorgeous damn coats, especially not here, no matter how much fun you are having, no matter how hot you get from dancing. Fashion is pain, I wish I suffered through the sweat and kept my coat with me!

Not a safe space for queer people, strangely. Security are tokenistic.In 2022, you’d really expect that a venue actively promotes safety, fairness & equality for all its patrons. No one needed to bring the behaviour to anyones attention, it was absolutely plain to see. Other reviews explain this too.However, the drag is AMAZING!! Upstairs at Mollies is OK (same venue).I’m more than disappointed to leave this review 🙁 This is absolutely not the night out I thought I’d have & I take zero pleasure in sharing this.Edit: The young person I ended up spending the night with (a delightful random), who had a disability was so unbelievably distressed by the behaviour of the crowd that she opted to go home. She was SO strong but wasn’t at all protected by staff. She was in tears by the end

If you like consent don’t go here, vibe was very off and within the first 5 seconds of me walking in a random woman can up groped me tried to make out with me I hadn’t even seen their face, over crowded, can’t even move around without bumping into every one (I’m used to clubs but this was nuts)My friends enjoyed their night though.

Fun club/bar. Clean-ish toilets. Have always felt welcome there. Great music! Slightly overpriced drinks - but mmm, that’s fine! I have attended a few events here and have always had a great time.

Great music, friendly bar staff and fantastic late night shows! The food has always been so tasty whenever visiting for dinner. Miss Jay is the real star of this venue!

GIRLS BE WARNEDI’m with my 5 friends, and one of my friend is a GIRL with a shoes that can see her toe nail.1st try we were rejected.We attempted to change her shoes, 2nd time, still no good for them.Next time if you are a GIRL. Wear a work boots. Something to cover your toes.Miraculously, the Lovely Woman, I think she’s an organiser at that moment saw us and let us in.But seriously, not all GIRLS, LADIES and Woman wears runners or boots or sneakers.Bad experience.I’ll just spend my money somewhere else.

I never leave reviews, but in this case I feel it necessary. The staff is very rude, manager unprofessional(do not check their own cameras before removing a patron from the premises), venue is above the capacity limits (you can not even dance or walk without being pushed by their own staff) the ventilation does not comply with the current covid rules. From my perspective taking too many people and having only 5 staff downstairs will make them overload with work, resulting in being stressed and rude with their patrons.

CHANGE THE WOMAN ON THE DOOR!!She is not friendly, rude and she has a very bad vibe. It used to be better without her in the past years. Sincerely, your Sircuit gay customer 😘

Staff were more than excited to make a point that I wasn’t an Aussie, and that my paper vaccination record wasn’t good enough to enter. A place that totally follows the restrictions… Seemed racist to me.

Worst venue. Being a femme lesbian I naturally wear stilettos and got denied for this as the were “open toed”. There are very limited venues that support my community and being denied for this is disgusting and against what we stand for

Wouldn’t let my girlfriend in for having high heels on ‘for safely reasons’ of getting glass in foot yet they only use plastic cups at this venue. Doesn’t make any sense never been to a club where women cannot where high heels the only reason I can think they wouldn’t allow entry is segregation because we are female.Will not return

Wouldn't let me in coz i had open toe shoes on. I'm a girl, what else would I wear on a 34 degree day. Completely ruined my night. Apparently safety reasons, never heard of anything so absurd. If I am prepared to hurt myself, let me.

One of my favourite places to visit when in Melbourne. Highly underrated audio setup down stairs, always a good vibe and fun crowd.

They throw our drinks, you were very rude, very unprofessional, the staff constantly insulting. This is so not acceptable, we will take this to the authority in charge of the nightclub this will not stay like this

Absolutely loved this bar/club. A great place with a great vibe, and free drag shows 🥰 the queue was long but I guess that's to be expected. But SO WORTH!! The woman security at the front was very friendly and polite ❤️ unlike any other place I've been.Thursday music was absolutely amazing, mainstream, pop r&b drag show was very fun and choreographed very well!! music on Friday was less mainstream and a bit dated & old drag shows were more cabaret style.Only negative is the Indian drag lady at the front can be scary and unfriendly.

My friend and I waited in line for 10 minutes to then be told only closed toed shoes. I was wearing the new thong heel which is so in this season. I'm sorry, it's called fashion sweetie. Look it up x

Beware of the lighting in these venues. They use lighting which makes a $50 note look like a $20 in colour. A gold/yellow $50 note looks like a red $20 note under the lighting. You pull out a $50 note out of your pocket to pay the bartender and it looks like a red $20 note under the lighting. I got caught out with this at The Peel also. Until I saw 50 written on the note I thought it was a $20 note. Be aware and don't fall for this scam!!!!!!!

What a terrible venue. Most bars and clubs want their patrons to feel safe and secure when they are drinking alcohol and attending its venue. But not at Sircuit. At Sircuit, they demand that that the leave their drink unattended while they use the bathroom. When they refuse as they value their safety and know the law, they are quickly removed from the venue, stating that they are causing a disturbance. Personally I only attend clubs that want their patrons to feel safe and secure.Good to see that we have a LGBTIQ+ venue that is at the forefront of looking after its community and uphold the laws to protect the people that visit it!Shame on you, for endorsing and enabling such behaviour when you are supposed to be a venue that is at the forefront making its people feel safe in its environment.
