I think Melbourne still has restrictions for nightclubs.Can't over 100 people I guess,So not many people around now, but the line is still long outside.Music improves so much better.No more Britney spears and Madonna songs. I know they're gay icons but they need to take a break.Some classic songs are still there but the DJ working on some new songs is just beautiful.30/07/22Have not come back to peel for a few months.I travel back here from Sydney but I didn't enjoy it much tonight.The music was really bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!The tempo was too fast and loud to dance I always see myself as a dancing Queen however I always have to stop because I'm not able to catch the vibe.I saw a few guys they not even stay for 5 minutes.They need to work on the music and upgrade the speaker seriously.Very disappointed.

If I could give this place 0 stars I SO WOULD!!!THIS IS THE WORST PLACE!They did not let me and my partner in with open toed shoes. Ridiculous rules, the old short man at the entrance was soooo rude! If you expect people to come back DO NOT reject them over their open toed shoes! I would never come back to this place. So so so rude and only picks and chooses who they want in the club. Absolutely sickening and disgusting.

This was about to be my first ever gay bar to go to but I guess not. Didn’t let me in because I had track shorts/pants on? Was this always a rule? Also the doorman was being rude for no reason at all

On the 20th of March, the “doorman” was nothing short of rude. Needs to check his attitude, if you expect people to come back here.

Went here as soon as it opens in December (after it was declared a tier 1 exposure). Music here is unbeatable. Everything is just my jam. 😅👌🏼 Would love to come back regularly.

Entrance security peeps are the worst. Rude and obnoxious staff. This place is full of drugs. Beware of scamsters.

Absolutely rude and disgusting entrance staff. Mannerless and cheap freaks. This place is a drug haven. Beware of scamsters.

Owned and operated by Melbournes most unethical and dodgy publican - Tom McFealy.I worked here for 5 weeks and the owner tried to underpay me over one thousand dollars. I resigned and it took a further 2 weeks to be paid for my time spent working. This only happened after I had to put forward substantial communication advising him I will gladly take this all the way legally.If you buy a drink from this bar you a lining the pockets of a thug theif who exploits vulnerable young people. I shudder to think of what he has done to other people.

Told we weren’t allowed in as we were ‘female’ my partner identifies as non-binary. On a Saturday night which is apparently ‘all gendered night’ Such a horrible place to encounter. Will NEVER go back

An iconic venue that is one of Melbourne’s last remaining gay focused clubs/bars. Have had some great nights at The Peel, met some fabulous people and it never fails to entertain. There’s a large dance floor area well covered by two bars, another quieter area with pool tables & a massive semi enclosed smoking area. Security has always been friendly from what I’ve seen, however if it’s a very busy night i have seen them refuse entry to females which is understandable since it is a gay club!

Wow. The staff here were so terribly rude! Good crowd but getting through the door and grabbing a drink was painful... A little less screaming and a little...

This review goes out to the ladies.So you have been asked to queue...I think we've all gotten that little brochure by now. While a part of me gets a little...

1. They are picky, as stated, with allowing entry to women. However, you can bring a couple girlfriends, but you really must make sure they're dressed ready...
