29th apartment is a re-creation of an apartment originally inhabited by the infamous Katishe: a salacious struggling artist who worked the streets of St Kilda by night to support her passion and hopes of one day being discovered for her talents as a painter. A little after the time Jack Kerouac and Sid Vicious rented rundown rooms at New York City’s Chelsea Hotel, Katishe created her own slice of NYC at 29th apartment. When this gorgeous eccentric walked the dangerous streets at night and brought the rough and tumble men and women back to her place, none of her clients expected the maze of abstract oil paintings that stacked the walls. Fixated with the underground art and cultural movement that Andy Warhol had championed (and perhaps used to being up all night with her trade), most of Katishe’s paintings tell stories from the streets of NYC, the city that never sleeps. Since her mysterious disappearance in the early 80s, 29th apartment has only existed as a memory until 2009 when the current owners of the bar found her self-portrait, ‘Katishe’ as well as remnants of her personal life that are thought to have been part of her night time craft. Paying homage to this hard-working woman, the new owners re-imagined 29 Fitzroy Street as a bar and casual art gallery. With a fish tank that houses a now water-discoloured dildo in the cute bedroom, a decal of a back alleyway that leads to the toilets and a bookcase full of Katishe’s literary inspiration, 29th apartment brings the underbelly of St Kilda and New York together in a blend that can only be understood by taking a look into the heart of Katishe. 29th apartment welcomes you to ring its buzzer and enter into the comfy lounge room for a night of NYC inspired artwork, music, food and beverages.

My Son, Joy
My Son, Joy is built from the hearts of founders Neale White & Annabel McKay. It all started with wanting to create a healthier life style, with the daylight dining and no more late nights at work. Sharing food, creating memories, raising a glass in celebration. Hospitality & honesty. DAYLIGHT DINING Local hospitality professionals Neale White and Annabel McKay have opened the doors to their new health-focused venture, My Son, Joy. ‘Indulgence shouldn’t come at the expense of wellbeing,’ Neale says of his menu, which focuses on ethical sourcing, allergy awareness and seasonal wholefoods. ‘When I started to really put an emphasis on my own health, I realised how few options are out there for people who want to eat according to a particular lifestyle, such as low carb, high fat. ‘I wanted to create a space for people to nourish their bodies with incredible, seasonal food while also staying healthy.’ Rounding out the menu with more than just pressed juice, My Son, Joy has created a Victorian only wine list and a unique and boutique Australian gin list, for a complete dining experience. With Melbourne mainstay Annabel McKay managing front of house, it isn’t hard to imagine that experience will hold up. The pair were united by their desire to make eating well simple through their love of ‘daylight dining’. ‘We’ve both spent our careers working late nights and living the lifestyle that comes with that,’ says the duo. ‘You get to the point where you just can’t maintain it anymore. Our aim is to combine our experiences in fine dining with a more modern concept of wellbeing’, within a relaxed and friendly environment. High quality nutrient dense whole foods with a focus on seasonality and ethical food sourcing. Food the nourishes the body. Lifestyle food-quality of food. Low carb, high fat. Allergy conscious. Awareness of food integrity/sustainability
