Naked for Satan plan to add two storeys to the building behind them, which fronts onto Victoria St. Then they want to join their existing rooftop bar to this development via a skybridge over and a tunnel underneath the laneway. It sounds ambitious to create another huge bar and restaurant for 400 patrons when some existing ones in Fitzroy are struggling. Are there enough customers to fill it? Possibly it’s the type of venue that counts and obviously the view makes a fundamental difference.
A local who sent me the information about the development proposal says existing Naked for Satan customers ‘come down our laneways between Victoria and Greeves now for a spew and a piss so 400 more people will add to that nicely’. Quite. The planning documents are on the City of Yarra website and complaints have to be made by 5 February.
