Beans Bar is the first bar in Melbourne that’s solely dedicated to lesbian, trans, and neurodivergent patrons."
"In a blur of smoke and colourful graphics, Dope Lemon and the band took to the stage in funky, autumn-coloured suits and wide-brimmed hats...

The warung only hires local people, and many members of the waitstaff are deaf or hard of hearing.

I left the performance feeling warm and hopeful."
