Dancefloors come in all shapes and sizes in Sydney – sticky-floored pubs can double up as heaving rave caves, slick neon-lit DFs and small bars transform into late-night party dens when local DJs hop behind the decks.
As of November 8, dancefloors are back in the business of boogie. Nightclubs are now permitted to join pubs and bars in allowing punters to have a little shimmy on the dancefloor – so long as they adhere to the one person per four-square-meter rule, and everyone can provide proof of vaccination. Drinking and eating while standing up is also allowed again, and so is singing. So get ready to belt one out while you raise a drink at the clurb.
Banished be Sydney's reputation as the town in Footloose! Here is a rundown of all the places you can legally break some shapes in the Harbour City right now.
Note: things change quickly and often nowadays. The reopening dates of these venues and their prospective dancefloors will differ. Always plan ahead and check in with individual venues before embarking on your night out.
