Situated in Fitzroy (and within walking distance of many Melbourne University colleges) lies the Perseverance Hotel.
Consisting of a bar, function and dining rooms, fantastic courtyard and raving D-floor, Perseverance has all the potential for a great night out (including free entry). If you're a 90s kid at heart and yearn for the tunes of Britney, S Club 7 and the Spice Girls, throw on your dancing shoes and shuffle on down to Perseverance of a Friday night to experience their ever-popular '90s Night'.
Perseverance has something for everyone; whether you just want a quiet drink at the bar, a sneaky game of pool or if you really know how to work a square foot of dance floor, this is the place for you. And fellas, if you've somehow been dragged along by your girlfriend, and don't mind wading through pools of sweaty college kids, you can also catch the end of the game on the TV at the back of the room.
Despite the often lack of breathing space and throngs of spirited adolescents, Perseverance is a great place to spend a Friday night with friends, but make sure to get in there before 11pm or you may find yourself grape-vining to 'Boot Scootin Baby' outside in line for an hour.
