Grant Street

Grant Street Theatre has undergone a radical revamp with a new destination bar, lounge and theatre space open to public, artists and audiences alike in Melbourne.

The Lionel Gell (Lionel’s) Lounge acknowledges the extraordinary generosity of Lionel Gell, founder of the Lionel Gell Foundation. The Foundation has committed to a $1.3 million, ten year funding agreement that establishes and supports programming at Grant Street.

In addition to Lionel’s Lounge, The Lionel Gell Foundation has been assisting talented students in pursuing their artistic aspirations at the Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music since 2007. The Foundation supports student scholarships and awards across all artistic disciplines as well as the annual Dora McRae figurative drawing program (in memory of a dear friend of Lionel’s) each year.
