With Tandarra’s background in textile design and Melanie’s in social welfare, they may not have seemed likely candidates to open a small bar. But their desire to create something new and a genuine commitment to rejuvenate the Enmore Rd strip, saw them opened the doors to the Green Room Lounge in September 2010. Whilst there’s been an explosion of small bars in the City of Sydney catchment, “The Green Room” as it is lovingly known, was the very first small bar established in the Marrckville catchment area.

In creating a distinctive 1950′s lounge that ” equals Mad Men in its levels of retro chic…” the girls have managed to champion as a live music venue. Hosting regular free live music events, and most recently as a spot venue for Hoodoo Guru’s 30th anniversary tour, and housing Aussie indie rock legends such as Ratcat and Smudge for one off free live performances, The Green Room lounge finds itself in the front line of Sydney’s live venue rebirth.
