Nightlife - May 2012

01 May 2012

Docklands’ historic Mission to Seafarers in Flinders St now welcomes more than tourists seeking salves for their curiosity and spirituality.

The mission is a cosy, small hangout featuring live gigs and cheap meals. Beers, wines and spirits are still $5. Pool and ping-pong are free to play. And this month Stephen Cummings and SAS are playing every Thursday night.  

Sausages and Sailors (SAS) are: funk-pop singer-songwriter Robert Goodge (I’m Talking), bass guru Bill McDonald (Max Q and Frente) and writer-rocker Stephen Cummings.

Stephen says he lives mostly in his own mind. He has 20 albums, two novels and a memoir all published and available for sale. The SAS are brilliant! Be sure not to miss out this time.

Two sets will be performed between 7.30pm and 9.30pm on Thursday nights. Entry at the door costs $15.

The heritage-listed Mission to Seafarers is at 717 Flinders St, Docklands. It’s a 10-minute walk from Southern Cross Station.

Stephen’s CDs can also be purchased at the bar for $15 each.

The Mission of Seafarers used to be a meeting place for Melbourne’s sailors. Sailors would work out there in the gym and rest up there before they went out to sea.

International sailors still use the centre and today the mission is a non-profit organisation that cares for the welfare of seafarers.

The mission welcomes all to learn about its place in Melbourne’s history.

Enjoy the delightful meals, plus amazing live gigs at the mission this May!
