Tempo Rubato is a live classical music venue and bar in Brunswick.

We work in partnership with Piano Project, a Melbourne charity that provides piano lessons for children who have recently immigrated to Australia.

The Tempo Rubato concept was borne from recitals held by Piano Project, it is an evolution of an adventure.

While we are excited about how we might change and explore, our overriding goal will remain the same. We want to provide a tactile and welcoming space for people to enjoy live classical music.

We have a performance space for ticketed concerts with a 102 key Stuart & Sons concert grand piano. It is a magnificent instrument.

And a front bar which is open before and after every concert.

The bar is also open every Friday night, from 5.30pm-11pm, with Happy Hour until 6.30 and live music, with free entry, at about 7.30pm.

All profits made at Tempo Rubato are donated to Piano Project.

You can become a member of Tempo Rubato for $3 a month. As a member, you will be helping us achieve our goal. You will also get a 10% discount at the bar, a monthly email with the upcoming schedule, and other benefits as we think of them. For example, if we get Joep Beving to play at TR (which we might…), this will be a members only event.

Our concert schedule is in What’s On.
