After a 3 year dry spell of pandemic proportions, we are thrilled to FINALLY announce the return of TROUGH to Melbourne / Naarm
Before getting into the juice, it is worth acknowledging the enormous loss that is the closure of Club80. For over 10 years TROUGH had intimate access to a world-class men’s cruise club where the true potential of a sex-positive dance party exploded onto one of the most cherished dance-floors of Melbourne/Naarm. Huge thanks to the crew at Club80 for all the unimaginable memories!
TROUGH at Club80 is irreplaceable, but what made the party so unique was more than just the iconic space—it was the attitude, the freedom, the mind-altering music and of course the hot asses—all of which will live on in the next chapter of TROUGH.
BUT WHERE??? - we can hear you ask,
TROUGH will be easing the tip into post-Club80 life in a newly resurrected club space on Kings Way. A boutique-sized, two-level treasure hidden on the outskirts of the CBD, the TOP level will feature the main techno deck for the dancing kings, queens and NB dreams. With the BOTTOM level featuring a labyrinthine darkroom for the searchers, probers and good-time explorers.
In true TROUGH tradition, each event will create a safe, diverse and inclusive sex-positive space for you to open your mind or any other body part(s) you might fancy. Post Club80, TROUGH welcomes all genders/non-genders, sexualities, fetishes and bodies to come celebrate the beautiful res-erection of this iconic party.
TROUGH would like to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians as the first peoples of these great lands on which we come together. We wish to pay our respects to all First Nation Australians, past, present and emerging, and we acknowledge and celebrate their continued spiritual and cultural connection to the land. Sovereignty was never ceded.
