Time Out says

This 1,600-seat Art Deco landmark has seating and a mezzanine, and plays host to a wide range of shows – everything from rowdy band gigs to giant dance parties and stand-up comedy revues. Spill onto Enmore Road for dinner and a drink after.

Keen on a kick on? The Town Hall Hotel is the spiritual home of grungy rockers and indie kids in Newtown and is open until late every night.

What’s on

Nile Rodgers & Chic

  • Jazz

As headlining artists begin to embark on world tours after a slow couple of years on the road thanks to you-know-what, Australia is preparing for an influx of musicians to our shores. Old school disco aficionados will be thrilled to hear that one of the biggest names in the industry, Nile Rodgers, is setting sail for a run of shows throughout Australia and New Zealand in 2023. Sydneysiders should mark their calendars for Wednesday October 25, when Rodgers will take the stage with his band Chic at the iconic Enmore Theatre to perform greatest hits from his illustrious career. The talented musician has had an incredible journey through the industry with multiple Grammy Awards to his name, spots in both the Rock & Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame and songwriter, composer, producer, arranger and guitarist credits on some of the biggest tracks over the past 50 years. If you’ve ever heard songs like Diana Ross’ ‘I’m Coming Out’ or Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ you can thank Rodgers for playing a part in bringing those sounds to the airwaves.  In addition to the Sydney show, Rodgers and Chic will be performing at the Civic Theatre in Auckland (October 18), the Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane (October 20), the Melbourne International Jazz Festival (October 21), Fremantle Prison (October 27) and the Harvest Rock Festival in Adelaide (October 28). If you’re keen on seeing a jazz legend live in action, tickets go on sale on September 7 at 11am here. Can't wait? Here are the best gigs in Syd

Rhys and Joel's Family Christmas

  • Stand Up

Dress the tree, pop the turkey in the oven and pour yourself a glass of eggnog, because Aussie comedians Rhys Nicholson and Joel Creasey are here to make the Yuletide gay. The pair is teaming up to host their very own, very flamboyant Christmas extravaganza, and we're all invited.  The pair of comedy icons and self-described "drunk aunties" will treat Sydneysiders to a show at Newtown's iconic Enmore Theatre on Friday, December 1. Featuring a yet-to-be-revealed line-up of special guests, the cheeky shows are set to celebrate the end of a huge year for both comics. After winning the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Most Outstanding Show Award, Nicholson also returned as a judge for RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under while also starring in Netflix’s sci-fi series The Imperfects. The other half of the duo, Creasey, continued to successfully co-host one of Australia’s favourite national drive shows with Kate Richie and Tim Blackwell, as well as Eurovision with Myf Warhurst.  If that's not incentive enough to check out this outrageous Yuletide party, we don't know what is. Tickets start at $36 and are on sale now, snag them here. RECOMMENDED: Sydney's best gay and queer bars The best comedy nights in Sydney
