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.

    What a shocker. Another example of the council letting rampant commercialism drain the spirit out of the neighbourhood. Why should a beer barn be allowed take over a side street and beautiful historic buildings – and slap a bloody roof bar over everyone’s heads to boot? The drunks, the noise, the spew – pity the poor bloody neighbours putting up with the bogans and hens nights they’ll drag in to fill this one. I give it a year.

    Another example of someone trying to make money at the expense of the suburb

    I’m at the stage where I don’t believe objections have any impact. It will go to VCAT and get rubber stamped like all the others.

    I don’t know if it’s related to the redevelopment or not, but from personal experience the downstairs tapas offerings have gone downhill dramatically in the last few months. Friends report the same. However, upstairs is always packed, so why would they worry?

      I haven’t been in there for a couple of years. Not tempted to hearing that!
