Sydney's longest running and highly regarded burlesque night's 'RED LIGHT CONFIDENTIAL', has found itself  a new permanent home in the nation's Arts capital - Melbourne!   We are so pleased that The 86 Cabaret Bar now presents you the best of local, national and international touring acts every single month with the best value show available.

A night of artists of all kinds, for artists of all kinds and for the people who love to watch artists of all kinds. This is the best value night of entertainment around and every month packs quite the variety punch!

RED LIGHT CONFIDENTIAL was born 4 years ago as an underground event by burlesque luminaries 'Kelly Ann Doll' and 'Michael Wheatley' as project for fellow artists to meet, collaborate and preview their new acts and routines.  It has since grown into an institution with a solid line up of performers 'of the who's who' of Australian burlesque, cabaret, circus, comedy, music and magic.

Touring artists from all over the country and globe regularly add  RED LIGHT CONFIDENTIAL stop to their calendar! You never know what or who to expect at RED LIGHT CONFIDENTIAL....except that it will be top shelf entertainment on and off stage!

The inaugural Melbourne season commenced in June 2017 to rapturous applause and we are glad to announce Red Light Confidential returns to The 86 each and every month.  

With special guest performers from some of the leading acts in cabaret and burlesque the night is also filled with newcomers and guests wanting to try out their new acts. The amazing thing is you get to see as many as 15 acts and from only $15 (early release tickets).
