Sydney Nightlife - The Nutshell Guide
Sydney Nightlife - The Nutshell Guide
If you want to see girls in skimpy, bright clothes and listen to music that goes doof, doof, doof all night, go to Home, Sweetchilli or Zen.
If you want to wear your suit with pride and drink cocktails with all the other 'wanna-be's,who never will be' go to the Establishment, Art House or the Veranda.
If you want to get laid, go to Kitty O'Shea's or any other pub with an Irish name.
If you want to get kissed on the cheek by a drunken old German man, go to the 24/hr pub across from Icebox, Minsky's, the Lowenbrau or The Stoned Crow.
If you want to hang out with frightening looking goths who are really quite nice to talk to, go to the Century Tavern
If you wanna pick up within the first 10 minutes of arriving, you can always try the vast array of aussie chicks who can't dance to save themselves at either Berry Street, North Sydney, Patricks at Penno or Tracks
at Epping... or for those living further south, there's always Coyote's at Caringbah, or Carmen's. All you have to do is call out "Wendy!!" or
"Cheryl!!" and you'll be right mate.
If you want to wear black dress pants, tight-fitting coloured shirts with six of your mates in the same gear and drink imported beers, go to Pontoon Bar or Cave.
If you want to see the absolute scum of the earth - go to the Coopers Arms in Newtown for half price beers from 6 till 7.
If you drive a WB Ute complete with bull bar, 2 meter UHF aerial, 'shoot ferals' & 'get real get wool' stickers, wear RM's, moleskins & chambray shirts but have never travelled further west than Edgecliff and claim your family was originally "from the land", go to the Royal Oak in Double Bay.
If you'd like to see girls in white pants with dirty knee's... go to
Blueberries ... eewww! One of the few places where girls use the pickup line
"hi, I'm 16" (and it works!)
If you want to cheap feed that doesn't taste like crap, go to Foresters Pub in Surry Hills. You can dead-set afford to eat out now every night.
If you wanna pose with your oiled up pecks and shiny tight shirts, or go clubbing in stiletto heels - step this way for Tantra, NV & half of Oxford Street
If you don't want to have to shave that mono-brow, think peroxide spikes
are sexy, or otherwise have no idea... we have any number of inner city pubs-gone-clubs. You know the ones, two coloured lights a disco ball, some drunken office workers on the dance-floor pissed as.... CBD, The Forbes, Paragon, St Pats, Jackson's on George...
If you want some competition - any kind really, glam, sham or macho man, look no further than GAS; some of the shallow passive aggressive
types...hey what you looking at?
If you don't know f*#k-all about music, or have atrocious taste, but like the idea of kids on drugs, you might be tempted by one of Sydney's fabulous raves! Utopia or Godspeed.
If you miss your old barn dances go for the TAV, (Castle Hill tavern to the uninitiated) it really has to be seen to be believed though doesn't it?
If you want to try your luck competing with 30 something year olds for some of that glamour tail, the Sackville in Balmain or Hugo's is a good shot...
If you still wanna something different, try going to Club Troppo...
I...Club Troppo... the place where that "I'm a Barbie Girl" song by Aqua is classified as "techno". You are guaranteed 1 of 2 things when you enter Troppo:
1.. A group of 20 gangster wannabes, fresh off the mini bus will kick your head in.
2.. You will get laid... you definitely wont enjoy
it...but you will be that drunk to put up with the
@!#$ music that you will let anything take you home. It's the only place where a chick will tell a guy that she doesn't want to kiss him by
shrieking>>> "Hey! Stop touching my f***ing pu*sy!"
About covered all except that if you just wanna get drunk, laid and enjoy some "gummies" the Americas Cup & Marble Bar in the city and the B&B (Bourbon & Beef) at the Cross are the places for you....but remember five
1. Get there well after 3 or 4 am and make sure that you are right off the
planet with booze and all and you don't even know your name;
2. That all the lights are off when you get home;
3. If you are lucky, the false teeth would come off and placed in a jar so you could go all gummy;
4. After you are done, get up and leave without looking at who brought you there; 5. Might just be pushing your luck but B&B may still be open for another shot of tequila.....and you will go home knowing (not...) that you just had Pamela Anderson!!!!
Finally, if all else fails,,,,,,and you have had too much, no place to go and just wanna a quickie or be stroked.....the Barons at the Cross and QBar in Darlinghurst (Oxford St) are the places to be and they don't close till 7 and 9 am....so hopefully, you would have sobered up by then and found that
people are not as pretty and sexy as you saw them hours ago...
