Best for: Outrageously fun queer nights in the Inner West
Remember when Guy Pearce christened a giant silver bus ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’? That Champagne-smashing moment from the movie happened outside this very venue. So it comes as no surprise that it's still a much-loved haven for the LGBTQIA crowd: the party crews behind Heaps Gay, Girlthing and Honcho Disko all call this magical place home. Head downstairs to the expansive basement club that hosts international artists and DJs, catering to the most fabulous of crowds. If hectic raving ain't yo thang, head back upstairs for nightly drag shows and sing your heart out to some classic party tunes.
Sydney loves to party – we'll party on the roof, in the basement, by the pool, even once every few months in a suburban bowling club. As of December 7, Sydneysiders are able to get out for a groove again (albeit only 50 of us at a time). The trick is knowing where to look and not relinquishing a night out because you think it can't be done. It can – here's where to start.
