Stonewall is a great place for a chill night out, a party night or just a humble $10 meal on Oxford street. Iconic amongst the locals! My favourite part Is the diva bar's $12 long islands, best on Oxford street!

Basically the go to gay bar for Sydney and visitors. Loved the entertainment shows. Dance floor upstairs is junky old smelly carpet that should be replaced. Sound system is awful - bring ear plugs. Crowd is fun and mixed.

Perhaps the afternoon is not the best time of day to check out a gay bar. It was fine enough and the beer cold and surprisingly the music wasn't too loud. Interesting, though.

A fine local however the security guards let this place down. Judge mental for no particular reason. There are more inviting places across the road at Palms. Spend your money elsewhere.

We had really fun on Wednesday 4th January, where they organized the "malebox" party. Drinks don't have alcohol as in Europe, but we appreciated it. Please, bring always your passport: after 10 pm you must be over 25 (they told me). Me and my partner...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
