Melbourne’s 29TH APARTMENT SHARES THE LOVE WITH A TASTY SLICE OF NYC CULTURE
Words by Keti Kezunovic
As one of the more titillating and culturally underground venues in all of Australia, 29th Apartment, launched “We Love Wednesdays” last week. Over the last 8 years 29th Wednesdays has grown in popularity and built a loyal following among students and backpackers looking for a night of NYC inspired artwork, music, food and drinks. So, 29th Apartment are sharing the love with their customers and introducing “We Love Wednesdays”, which for just $10 entry includes a drink and ‘all you can eat pizzas’ (free slices of their fantastic hand stretched authentic Italian pizzas) between 8 -10pm, accompanied by live music performances.
On the club’s decision to launch their “We love Wednesday’s” Keti Kezunovic said:
“We’ve got a great crowd who love coming to 29th Wednesdays to enjoy our signature handmade pizzas served with a mash up of party anthems and modern house classics… and we just wanted to share the love. With the 11th October launch behind us, we’re looking to build on our already successful format by offering more live music as well as an extra tasty slice of NYC culture. I know that “We Love Wednesdays” will prove to be a huge success and be warmly welcomed by all our customers, old and new alike.”

ABOUT 29TH APARTMENT
A little over 8 years ago, co-owners Steve Thomas and Keti Kezunovic refurbished and re-opened 29th Apartment as a re-creation of the apartment originally owned by lascivious lady of the night, Katishe. With dreams of one day being discovered for her artistic talents and her infatuation with New York’s underground art scene, Katishe lled her apartment with a maze of abstract oil paintings depicting stories from the streets of NYC, the city that never sleeps.
In homage to this hard-working woman, this St Kilda bar boasts New York landscapes, a comfy lounge room with pinball, raised ‘fire escape’ booth seating outside an apartment, Katishe’s bedroom – complete with a fold-away bed, bathroom, bus stop and the ubiquitous graffiti-filled alleyway.
Steve and Keti also own Prahran’s quirky Pawn & Co and have recently opened the whimsical fantasy bar StoryVille on Lonsdale Street.
