Anthony (Tony) Knight

Melbourne venue owner/manager, 1960s



According to Billy Thorpe, Tony Knight was:

"...the son of a very successful catering family. A handsome flamboyant character who sat at the front door [of Bertie's Disco] four nights a week dressed to the nines in velvet and lace, Tony embodied the elegance of the "Mod" Edwardian style that had becaome so popular in Carnaby Street in the late '60s."

Knight and his family operated two of the most successful and popular Melbourne venues of the late 60s, Bertie's and Sebastian's.
