All of us at the Hype Feed would like to say a heartfelt good bye to St. Jerome’s.

For five or so years, Jerome’s has been just about the coolest bar in Australia, despite being located in the flood prone fire escape of the Lonsdale Street Myer, just up from about 20 Chinese restaurant rubbish bins. Starting life as a Swiss sandwich bar, Jerome’s was bought and reopened as a ramshackle hangout for Melbourne’s hipsters, fashion types and musicians. It even spawned it’s own national event, the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival.

Anyway, it’s closed now and we’ll miss it.
