Long after the other 60 Fringe World venues close for the night, The Budgie Smuggler will still be full and squawking.
The inventively named Fringe artists' club is bedecked in a nautical theme and stalked by Polytoxic, a karaoke "back-up service" dance trio.
They entertain the after-hours crowd by calling up karaoke contestants to be fitted out in costumes that reflect the chosen tunes - and then they provide the back-up dancing.
Polytoxic member Lisa Fa'alafi called their back-up show a karaoke experience like no other and a tribute to the crimes and conquests of pop culture.
"We like to give people the red-carpet service with champagne and the full dress-up, including wigs, lashes and shoes," Fa'alafi said.
"People have been repeatedly coming back to get the chance to be a superstar with us."
She said The Budgie Smuggler, in the Artrage Bakery complex in Northbridge, was a place where performers could mix and unwind away from the spotlight.Adam Krandle, who performs in the New York duo Trixie and Monkey, said such a venue was a welcome haven for touring artists.
"It is awesome to have that place where your performing family can hang out and see each other again," Krandle said. "I am seeing people I used to hang out with in Edinburgh and London.
"And it is nice to have drink specials in a city where everything is so expensive."
