The Cat's Eye is a student-run lounge and pub located in the basement of the Goldring Student Centre. During the school year, the space is open every weekday, serving as a place for students to relax and unwind between classes or as the venue for various events hosted by Vic clubs and groups. With a Games Room complete with pool tables, air hockey, table tennis, foosball, and an arcade dance machine, as well as a Gaming Corner with all sorts of systems, there’s something for everyone looking to kick back and enjoy their free time or chat with friends.


We host a variety of events throughout the year, including open mic nights, pub nights, concerts, and other shows.



Pub Nights


The Cat's Eye is a fully accessible venue with access ramps at both of its entrances. It features a stage with sound and light systems, a games corner with various systems, and a games room.


The main room includes a 13'8" x 25' stage with an access ramp and a gaming corner with various systems. We also have a Games Room with pool tables, air hockey, ping pong, foosball, pinball, and an arcade dance machine.


We have an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar with amp, an electric bass guitar with amp, a soprano ukulele, a drum kit, and a keyboard. We can also have up to four mics at a time.


Our stage has a full light rig including both white and LED lights, and a 8-channel sound system. The stage is also fitted with a projector and a retractable screen. Our light and sound boxes, as well as our DVD/BluRay player are located in a sound booth across from the stage.


If you want to book the Cat's Eye for an event, follow the following steps. Once you're done, fill out our booking form below.

  • Check Availability

    Take a look at our calendar and check that your desired date and time aren't taken. It's also a good idea to consider whether there are similar events happening around that time.

  • Check Equipment

    If your event requires any special equipment, make sure that we have it! A list of our equipment is provided above in our Space section. Some equipment such as podiums, additional projectors or chairs must be requested through Maria Quiroz from Events Victoria.

  • Book the Bar

    If you'd like the bar to be open during your event, you need to book it separately along with security for the duration of the event. To do so, contact Maria Quiroz from Events Victoria and fill out a risk assessment form. Once you have booked the space and the bar, forward the confirmation email to us. Note: food must be provided by the organisers when booking a bar event.
