Dance party

After a 3 year dry spell of pandemic proportions, we are thrilled to FINALLY announce the return of TROUGH to Melbourne / Naarm.


Before getting into the juice, it is worth acknowledging the enormous loss that is the closure of Club80. For over 10 years TROUGH had the exclusivity to a world class mens cruise-club where the true potential of what a sex-positive dance party could exist and thrive in Melbourne / Naarm. Thank you to all the crew at Club80 for all the unimaginable memories.

TROUGH at Club80 is irreplaceable but what made the party so unique was more than just the iconic space –– it was the attitude, freedom, mind altering music, and of course the hot asses. All of these things will live on into the next chapter of TROUGH.

We can hear you ask, BUT WHERE???

TROUGH will be easing the tip into post-Club80 life in a newly resurrected club space on Kings Way. It is a boutique-sized, two leveled treasure hidden in the outskirts of the CBD. TOP level - main techno deck for the dancing kings and queens. BOTTOM level - darkroom labyrinth for the seekers, explorers and probers.

In true TROUGH tradition, each event will create a safe, sex-positive space for you to open your mind or any other body parts, to embrace a more diverse and inclusive crowd. Post Club80, TROUGH welcomes all genders / non-genders, sexualities, fetishes and bodies to come celebrate the res-erection of this iconic party.


TROUGH would like to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians as the first peoples of these great lands on which we come together. We wish to pay our respects to all First Nation Australians, past, present and emerging, and we acknowledge and celebrate their continued spiritual and cultural connection to the land. Sovereignty was never ceded.
