Time Out Sydney

No matter what your party pleasure, the Cross has got it

Best for... LIVE MUSIC

FBi Social

The new refurb of The Kings Cross Hotel now plays home to FBi's pop-up live music space. Catch up and coming artists on level 2 of the venue and celebrate the best in upcoming Sydney talent.


Beach House

The former Barons site is where you'll find Sydney's glitterati. Get dressed up for a stylish night of clubbing.

Best for... COMEDY

Happy Endings Comedy Club

The good-sized room, snug atmosphere and great comics doing perfect-length sets makes Happy Endings one heck of a good Saturday night out.

Best for... PICKING UP

Kit & Kaboodle

Man drought getting you down? Can't find that special girl to take home to mother? Start your search at Kit & Kaboodle, the place to be seen and do some looking yourself.

Best for... CHILLING OUT

Eau de Vie

Slip away from the hustle and bustle of the Cross and into this secret escape. With a heavenly/ridiculously comprehensive cocktail list and a painfully exclusive vibe, Eau de Vie is where you want to be. Just ensure you've borrowed a wealthy relative's credit card before grabbing a table.

Best for... RETRO

Hinky Dinks

Bored of sticky dancefloors and pumping house beats? Come on down to this cheek-pinchingly adorable wine bar for a night of retro decor and seriously contemporary cocktails. If the bar's perfect aesthetic isn't enough to drag you there, then the comfortable atmosphere and winning service is sure to. 

Best for... CLUB MUSIC


Nothing good ever happens at Goldfish. Or, so the saying goes. But those people are probably recalling its previous incarnation as the Goldfish Bowl. These days the bartenders shake seriously good drinks and the place pushes a tech-house music policy, often booking great international headliners like Detroit legends Octave One.

Best for... INDIE

World Bar

Every Friday the cavern-like backroom of World Bar pulses with the sounds of Sydney's best upcoming bands. A must-visit venue for music fans who like it live, loud and indie.

Best for... SPORTS

Club Swans

Want to vibe on some code? Doesn't matter what game you're into – rugby, football, Gaelic hurling or more – Club Swans has got your coverage needs covered, with numerous bars broadcasting all the latest sporting action.

Best for.. KARAOKE

Ju Ju

Got a hankering for public humiliation? Come to JuJu's after 10pm on Friday and Saturday, when the karaoke machine is wheeled out after dinner service for your caterwauling pleasure.
