Tasty nightclub raid

Melbourne, Australia

Tasty nightclub raid

The Tasty nightclub raid refers to an incident on 7 August 1994 during which 463 patrons of the Tasty nightclub event in Melbourne, Australia were detained for seven hours, strip searched and cavity searched, and in some cases brutalised, by members of Victoria Police.

The Tasty nightclub, not widely known to the general public prior to media reports of the raid, was a popular alternative venue frequented by a large number of gay and transgender patrons, and well-known local identities. Though not endorsed by the organisers drug taking was common amongst its patrons. The Tasty events were in some ways a precursor to the later underground rave parties.
