Jerome is also well known for creating one of Melbourne's most-loved bars, St Jerome's in Caledonian Lane. Jerome has an intimate understanding of the CBD area and a particular affection for the life and livelihood of its laneways. He is the co-founder behind the internationally recognised St. Jerome's Laneway Festival (currently in it's 10th year!), in conjunction with Chugg Entertainment
