Time Out Sydney

A trusty venue in the CBD where you can catch acclaimed legacy acts and up-and-comers in equal measure

Central location? Check. Good sound? Check. Decent amenities? Check. A bar from which you can see the stage? Check. Another bar? Check. A popular venue for shows, dance parties and the occasional comedy gig since the early '90s, the Metro really does work on every level – well, the beer selection lacks – and is the place to see internationals and just-about-to-explode locals nearly every night of the week.
