    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!

      The Cope Street Parade

      Original Australian Swing Music. The Parade blends the hot sounds of gypsy swing
      with elements of New Orleans traditional jazz to create a style of music that sounds
      both new and old yet always uniquely Australian. Think if Django Reinhardt met Louis
      Armstrong in a good old country pub.

      Wednesday 6th January


      Lanie Lane is happy to announce a run of intimate summer gatherings for her closest fans after spending this year travelling solo through the Aussie outback. During this time, Lanie has been reassessing her approach to life and music. She now has some beautiful new songs and stories to share with everyone who has been so supportive of her choice to take a big step back from the music industry. Maintaining an independent and authentic connection with her fan base is what these shows are all about. Lanie is also excited to share a body of work of her visual art which will be available exclusively at these gatherings – including some special one-off pieces. Tickets will sell fast in these intimate spaces so get in quick.

      Men From Earth

      Rivers that sing, Trees that grin, Songs that ride on the wind. Men From Earth takes Folk to the Mountain and conjures a wildwood dream.


      Men From Earth are a diverse collective of passionate musicians. Four generations (ages range from 21 to 62), of players, honest heartfelt lyric, sound and vocal harmony. A band which effortlessly strings together the threads of blues, folk, country and celtic roots. Scott Bird, the bands leader and musical director (vocal, guitar, harmonica), is joined by Tom Beasley (mandolin, banjo and vocals), Luke Wright (mandocello, acoustic guitar and vocals) and Robert Patey-Downes (percussion and vocals)


      The key is simplicity. It’s not about music from the head, it’s about music from the heart. This is an ethos Bird has stuck to his entire life playing music, which began in his early teens. The approach solidified in the late ‘80s and continued through the ‘90s when Bird was a founding member of Pale Riders, a group who essentially pre-dated the nu-roots wave, which crested in the early ‘00s with the likes of Ben Harper, Xavier Rudd and John Butler.


      Men From Earth will be touring Australia over the summer season to support the release of their debut album Wildwood Echoes’ which is a collection of songs rich with intent. They deal in part with finding a sense of peace, but more important, as Bird says, the album, lyrically, “is about connection. I have a really strong connection with the land, that’s where everything comes from.” The first single ‘Shine’ holds true with its combination of sweet mandolin and simple melodic hook. The album was recorded live to tape at Albert’s Studios in Sydney with James Gillard joining on double bass. It is, as Bird says, “real, both lyrically and sonically”. The results are quite stunning.


      “Imagine the raw power of these gritty folksongs blasting from a festival pa. Imagine the sonic gut-punch of these foot-stomping blues. Men from Earth make songs that can, should, must! – be played loud and live. No bells and whistles here, no smooth edges. Turn Wildwood Echoes up – then show up to their next gig”. Rob Hirst – Midnight Oil / Backsliders
      Wildwood Echoes is available on vinyl, CD and digital. Visit MFE’s website for details www.menfromearth.com.

      Irish Mythen

      Think back to a time in your life when you heard music that was so powerful and beautiful you were instantly engaged. That’s the experience many audiences have on first hearing Irish/Canadian folk artist Irish Mythen – an experience in the joy of everything. Her music is the root of small communities and the strength of a loyal fan base.


      Irish is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live performances. She is the storyteller who will grasp your attention and who will bring you on an incredible and emotional journey – as well as the comedian with a joie de vivre who’ll have you laughing from the very beginning until long after she’s left the bandstand.


      This 2015 (Canadian) East Coast Music Association winner was born and raised in Wexford County Ireland, Irish Mythen has travelled the globe playing in Europe, Australia, the Middle East and the UK. Home is now Canada’s East Coast (Prince Edward Island).


      During her travels she has worked with a host of world-renowned artists like Tom Paxton, The Dubliners and The Pogues. She shared stages with Emmylou Harris, Gordon Lightfoot, and Peter Yarrow, to name but a few.


      Since her immigration to Canada in 2008 Irish has been honored to create music and memories with Gordie Sampson, Joel Plaskett, Ron Hynes, Matt Andersen, Bruce Guthro and Dave Gunning. She has become an admired and respected artist on the Canadian scene.


      Irish has proudly produced two EPs — Appreciate (2004) and Fallen Me (2006), as well as three full-length releases to her name — Sweet Necessity (2008), Open Here (2011) and Irish Mythen (2014). Open Here was nominated for the 2012 East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) Roots Traditional Recording of the Year. Her latest, self-titled album won her an ECMA in the same category in April 2015.

      The Zap Show

      Zap blossomed in the artistic playground of Berlin when two Australians and one Greek combined ideological forces. Together they animate lives and cause happiness earthquakes with their rambunctious show full of bogan swing, perverted puppetry, extremely physical theatre, tenacious tap dance moves and cymbal splashing comedy.
