Security was elitist and/or racist. Paid $25 but apparently that didnt matter. I have never encountered such rude security.

The bouncers at this place are horrible thugs, they kick people out because they feel like it with no reason at all. I suspect its got more to do with the amount of drinks you aren't buying than how many you are. Complete bullies, who...More

The staff is very very rude in different ways. Music and lighting remind me of a club decades ago, super old fashion (in a bad way). I really don't think people would like to have this club experience in Sydney. Please choose another one, there...More

I literally come here every Friday night. There are always pure vibes with hard trap or dubstep! It is better to buy the tickets online though as it is cheaper.

Not a decent or fun club to go. The place is a little bit shabby and the music is not that good either. Not worth the entrance fee. The free entry bar as a part of it is better than the club itself though

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
