No visual documents were made of the epic celebratory set by Taaffe and Sinclair post-midnight when the war was won and The Moon Colony had turned 25. This may be for the best, but if you have any documents of the dance floor then please get in contact.


Who is Roger?


We found this when we peeled back the broken mirror to replace it a few years back, while we were updating the colour scheme and re-painting the walls. Any ideas who Roger is? It’s probably from the early 90s. The things you find in a place with so much history.. #25YearsofTheMoon


Have you got your tickets to our 25th birthday party this Sunday yet? It’s 90s sci-fi themed. Tickets here:

Our 25th Bday Halloween Party!


The year is 2016. Earth is now a barren wasteland of deserted cities underground an island of forgotten landfill. In an effort to salvage the remaining population during The Great Famines of 1991, Earth began radical preparation in search of new resources. Their plan was Planetary Colonization.

Amidst the panic of resettlement and mass hunger, introduction of the New Planetary Order was swift. Now Civilians of ‘The Order’, inhabitants of the colonies were to become workers, monitored for their productivity; tagged, tracked, and turned in for ‘parts’ at the end of their productivity span. Food is rationed, music and dancing are forbidden, and freedom is a myth. Everywhere, except one colony.

A fabled city set among the first Lunar Outposts, Moon 25 stands alone as a subterranean sanctuary against The Order. Formerly an abandoned dance hall intended for rich interstellar tourists, the oldest settlement on The Moon has for 25 years been home and hideout for interplanetary vagrants and rogue Civilians. Now, at war with The Order, cyborg military, and extraterrestrial pirates, the people of The Moon must come together to overthrow oppression and take back their freedom. One night, one uprising, the greatest Halloween adventure of all time. Welcome to Moon 25.

Featuring music by Naik, Akioka, DJs Nathan J, Ben Taaffe & Andrew Sinclair, and performances by Brandy Savage, The Beehives GoGo Dancers, and Odette Mercy as The Oracle.

25 years.

A home away from home.

This Halloween, The Moon colony takes over.

The Take Away Special has been turning a few heads in it’s debut season with it’s sizzler “salad bar” of robust chit-chat and unfolding insights, lubricated by some tasteful banter peppered in there for good measure.

But now for the very first time, The Take Away Special is broadcasting LIVE from the Moon Cafe in Northbridge for ONE MATINEE ONLY…

Session A: Real Dads feat. Robin Thomas & Michael Lim.
Session B: Music Dads feat. Tbc

25 Years of The Moon: Marc

This is Marc, our cook. You’ve probably met him. He’s been at The Moon for almost as long as the moon itself. We’d say it’s been about 23 years of The Moon’s 25 years. Marc first came to work at The Moon as a kitchen hand for Erik, who was the owner for 8 years. We were privileged enough to meet Marc 13 years ago and he’s been part of our family ever since. Marc is loyal, incredibly hard working and totally lovely. He’s a major part of Moon history…and present. #25yearsofTheMoon

25 Years of The Moon – Halloween 2006

Many moons ago back in 2006 we celebrated our third year of ownership with our first Halloween party! It was one helluva night, full of unique Perth characters. Plus local acts Snowman, Tomas Ford and Silkie Krusher & The Sex all rocked out hard. Tomas Ford also used to climb all over his audience members back in these days, so there was much hilarity. Have a look at these photos and see if you spot anyone you know?

The reason we celebrate Halloween is that we first got the keys to the door on the 31st of October 2003 so it’s kind of a big deal for us. This year we’re celebrating our 13th year of ownership and The Moon’s 25th birthday so it’s only fitting to celebrate in true moon fashion.. Stay tuned for more info.

The Moon’s 25th Birthday Halloween Party – Sunday 30 October 2016



25 years of The Moon. Photos from our 1st year.

This year The Moon has been open for 25 years! We’ll be having a big Halloween party in October to celebrate.

Here’s a little flash back from the 1st year of The Moon, back in 1991. Our friend and regular contributor to Perth Poetry Club, Lorenna Grant took these photos of a local poet. She doesn’t recall his name. We’re so appreciative to receive a little piece of Moon memorabilia! If you have any old photos please send them through to

Closed Tuesday January 26

Hey everybody! We have decided to close today Tuesday the 26th of January. Unfortunately one of our Fringe shows was cancelled due to illness and it made more sense for us to give our staff a day off. We’ll be open again from 11am Wednesday the 27th of January. Sorry for any inconvenience caused! xo
