1964 Tikki & John's

It all began in 1964 when Tikki and John Newman decided to open a late night coffee house on Exhibition Street in Melbourne, to catch the crowds as they left the theatres. From humble beginnings, this pint sized venue evolved into Tikki & John’s Music Hall which featured a fully produced show and restaurant, and soon boasted a waiting list of twelve months. Tikki & John’s became a Melbourne institution and set the standard in dinner theatre. This was Australia’s first Theatre Restaurant.
