    Our Story

    The philosophy @ No.5 is simple – an open space where people from all walks of life can come together to share an experience – to enjoy being nourished – to leave feeling inspired.

    Everything that we do is directed toward communicating ideas about how we can create a more sustainable, open minded, ethical and responsible community.

    Our food is a vehicle to express how we feel – wholesome & artistic, colourful & creative – simple flavours with attention to the details.

    We use the best local, organic & bio-dynamic produce available & design our menu based upon the abundance of the season – the way it should be!!

    By supporting local growers we are not only promoting growth of the local economy, we are reducing transportation costs & unnecessary use of non-renewable energy, not to mention providing healthy & affordable food for our community – whilst tantalising your taste buds too!!

    Our goal is not only to support local, ecologically balanced farming practices, but to actively venture towards establishing a holistic model for a fully sustainable small business operation that supports all those involved – our guests, our suppliers, our workers & ultimately ourselves!

    Live music, movie nights, social events & community gatherings – there’s always something going on down @ No.5!

    We welcome you to come down & enjoy the space, we look forward to serving you soon!

      FLIM CLUB PRESENTS – Bad Santa!!

      Ah, Christmas is nearly here – the soothing sounds of holiday music, the rustle of presents, the gathering of friends and family, and…. the belches and twisted ramblings of one foul-mouthed BAD SANTA!

      That’s right, we’re spreading the Xmas cheer with the ‘funny-as-hell’ UNCUT VERSION of the most politically incorrect Christmas comedy, starring Billy Bob Thornton as the dude in the red suit who’s more satan than santa.

      Directed by Terry Zwigoff (‘Ghost World’, Crumb’, ‘American Splendor’), this truly twisted comedy sees small time crooks, Willie and Marcus disguise themselves as Santa Claus and his elf and travel across the country to major malls, using the good will people have toward Santa to rob the mall stores blind.

      BAD SANTA is a very dark comedy that makes no compromises, takes no prisoners, and is funny as hell! So why not give the gift of laughter and bad taste this holiday season!

      Screening – Monday 22nd Dec @ 5 Church St, Bellingen
      Tickets only $7 / $5 conc. Film starts from 7.30pm

      Original Sin

      Acoustic duo, Original Sin, cook up a country flavoured, stomping-blues original set of ‘blue-country deliciousness,’ mixed with a soulful revival of traditional gospel and blues, dredged up from the likes of Blind Willie Johnson and Memphis Minnie. The pair have been said to ‘transport you back to the Mississippi Delta,’ with their unencumbered, wholesome performance, founded on a driving beat, vibrant melodies, sweet harmonies and spirited guitar lines.
      Home-grown from the Central Coast of New South Wales, Original Sin comprises the unprocessed, honeyed vocals, of Ariel, urged on and encouraged by the tireless guitar picking and sweet harmonies of Jordan, the combination possessing a lilting honesty. After years of pursuing solo projects, Original Sin’s eclectic talents can be heard throughout – Jordan occupies his boundless skill with a wide range of instruments and span of genres – including currently drumming with psychedelic rock outfit Bad Valley. Ariel tinkers with vastly varied musical projects and has featured in collaborations with hip hop and Folk/Rock artists.

      Friday 2nd January


      Intensely personal, humorous and thought provoking, Jodi’s music will inspire that deep shift you feel inside when a song really moves you.

      Jodi’s honest folk/roots style, evocative of Tracy Chapman and Sheryl Crow, makes her undoubtedly ‘one of Australia’s most talented singer-songwriters’ (The Weekend Australian).

      Jodi began her professional career on the ARIA-Awards stage at the age of 17, when her song Why was recorded by Kasey Chambers in the Dead Ringer Band. The song featured on their ARIA-Award-winning album, Homefires, and the win was an exciting motivation for Jodi to continue her career.

      Jenn Grant & The Starboard Cannons

      Music is the connector that binds us all” Says Grant, “To be able to create music, and share the power it can hold is one of life’s greatest gifts.” This is the very essence behind the voice and songs of Jenn Grant. A heralded singer and songwriter from Prince Edward Island, in Canada’s Maritimes, Grant has four albums and one EP under her belt; she is about to embark on a brand new journey with her best collection of songs to date: “The time is here and now, I’m over the moon.”

      Grant’s newest offering,‘Compostela’ translates to “Field of Stars” Or ‘Star Field’ – which comes from the legend that the dust of the pilgrims who walk the El Camino, make up the stars that form the Milky Way. There is an element of space on this new album. Teetering on psychedelic folk and into a balladry of melodic storytelling, you are welcomed into the heart’s cave.


      Joinig Jenn are the amazing Starboard Cannons. This is sure to be a great night!

      Steve Smyth

      STEVE SMYTH will be heading out on a stack of all new EXITS TOUR dates in support of his stunning Ivy League Records debut album, EXITS.


      After being involved in an incident in October which left him with a broken jaw, having to reschedule several dates from the first run of Exits Tour dates, singer/songwriter Steve Smyth is now fighting fit! Recovering so well in fact, that he’s picked back up on the rescheduled dates and announcing this second run for early 2015!


      After selling out shows on the first run of Exits Tour dates in Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane, receiving the Feature Album slot at Double J, Album Of The Weeks from ABC Darwin and Newcastle, and singles ‘Shake It’ and ‘Written Or Spoken’ being well received at community radio and Double J, Steve and band will pick back up touring Exits by covering major cities and regional towns across this fine land starting with a huge New Years Day event at Sydney’s Vic On The Park


      From the streets of Barcelona to touring alongside the likes of The Killers, Angus and Julia Stone, Lanie Lane and Kim Churchill, Smyth has proven time and time again to be devastating in the live setting. A voice churned up in Bourbon soaked Louisiana gravel that soars to the heavens at times with its sweetness…after experiencing Steve Smyth, it’s tempting to compare him with some of the great vocalists of the past few decades.

      Dan Waters

      Dan Waters launches his new 7 inch single “Heat of December” from his critically acclaimed debut album “La Vita E’ Bella” – winner of this years The Age Music Victoria Award for Best Country Album and Rhythms Magazine Debut Album of the Year – on Saturday December 7 at the Thornbury Theatre
      The launch rounds out a huge year for the Americana singer and all round southern gent since he burst onto the scene in 2012. His rapid rise on the scene prompted Martin Jones of Rhythms Magazine to ask “Why the hell hasn’t somebody told me about Dan Waters before now?”. Recently featured in American Songwriter, Dan’s poignant songwriting, ancient voice, and rustic guitar playing continue to win praise.
      With a reputation for musically honed and humorous performances, his band includes a who’s who of gun players, including Mark Dawson of Wagons and a rotating roster of Victorian Symphony Orchestra musicians
      Recorded at Crystal Radio and produced by Mark Dawson of The Wagons, “La Vita E’ Bella” is the album that almost never happened. A home break-in at the beginning of the year, in which the original master recordings for all but one song were stolen, forced him to begin the entire recording process again from scratch. It was a setback that only made him more determined. Upon re-recording, Dan enlisted the help of a huge range of local talent including award winning producer Mark Dawson, banjo from Tristan Goodall (The Audreys) and guitar and percussion from Chad Mason and Si Francis (Wagons).
      With support from Age Music Victoria Best Folk Album nominess the ‘Idle Hoes’, Dan will perform his wryly humorous and often moving songs about the stragglers, out-liers and beautiful oddities of society.

      Telegraph Tower

      Telegraph Tower is made up of Barnaby Smith (vocals, guitar) and Oliver Downes (cello), who met aged four. Despite many years on opposite sides of the globe, they craft a baroque-influenced folk sound that is gentle and disconcerting in equal measure. Immediate touchstones include 60s curios The Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention, Tim Buckley and Jethro Tull as well as muscular artists like Neil Young and Ryan Adams, creating songs of weirdness and depth. The pair released their debut EP Concubine in 2013, touring in NSW, Victoria and Queensland. They plan to record a debut album in 2015,

      Daniel Champagne

      One reviewer recently wrote – ‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ (themusic.com.au)
      The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.

      Now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz, holding crowds in his palm, dropping jaws and breaking guitars wherever he goes. Daniel Champagne has recently signed to US booking agency Fleming Artists and relocated to North America where he continues his exciting career as an international touring and recording artist.

      Kava Kings

      “A gypsy drenched ska party sure to get the dance floor flooded with keen dancers and lovers of upbeat music”
      Musically inclined people meet and end up playing together all the time, so in that respect the origin of the Kava Kings is nothing new. Tom, Daniel, Chris and James all went to the same high school (albeit in different years) and formation seemed inevitable. It wasn’t until schoolies however in 2010 while bonding over kava – Fiji’s tongue tingling ‘national drink’ that the final pieces fell into place and a mutual love of kava and mutual love of gypsy, ska and reggae were to lay the foundation of the band and indeed their friendship.
      Since that fateful day, The Kava Kings have been headlining shows in both Sydney and up and down the east coast of Australia – delivering highly energetic performances which have helped them to earn a reputation and a following both locally and regionally.

      Honey & Knives

      Bellingen based Honey & Knives marry the sweetness and beauty of life’s possibilities with honesty blunt as a butter knife. Drawing together influences from folk, bluegrass, country and blues, Honey & Knives craft compelling, raw original music informed by love, loss, redemption and resignation.

      Driven by the intricate, soaring vocal harmonies of front-women Toke and Jacquie, Honey and Knives compel you to listen closely. Toke sets the pace and tone on ukulele and Jacquie delivers atmospheric, captivating violin breaks. Adding texture and rhythm to the mix is the multi-instrumentalist Steve on banjo, mandolin and oil can slide and Aaron on steel string guitar and slide.

      Honey & Knives perform with passion, drawing a crowd and sharing their music with those who care to listen. The band has just finished their debut album ‘You Don’t Make The Rules’ and is available now at www.honeyandknives.com
