Bars and Clubs

    • Beauchamp Hotel

    • The Martini
        Pier One Parkroyal, 11 Hickson Rd, Walsh Bay
        8298-9999, email

        Stylish modern bar with great location on the Walsh Bay wharves with harbour views. As the name suggests, martinis are the specialty here, in more than a dozen styles, as well as other scrumptious cocktails. Sit outdoors in the warm weather to take in the fresh air and cruising (on the water, of course).

    • Midnight Shift
        85 Oxford St, Darlinghurst
        9358-3848, email

        Three story club with two bars, dance floor, pool tables, and games. Attracts all sorts of gay archetypes. Also popular with Asian Sydneysiders looking for new friends. Djs spin popular dance beats along with gay anthems. Check out the men's facilities where a huge fish tank stands in for modesty panels (lucky fish!). Good for cheap beer, a game of pool or a dance either downstairs or upstairs. Busiest Wed to Sun. Best place for take-out during the week.

    • Milk Bar at Icebox

    • Middlebar
        383-387 Bourke St (above Kinselas), Darlinghurst

        Models, fashionistas, and glam wanna-bes (plus handsome staff!). Have a Death by Chocolate or Melon Matrix cocktail on the balcony overlooking Taylor Square. But, grab a choice seat early because this place starts packing them in after 10:30pm. The friendly owner knows many spots in the city.

    • Mint Room

    • Moist

    • The Oxford
        Oxford Hotel, 134 Oxford St (at the corner of Bourke St, on Taylor Square), Darlinghurst

        Recently refurbished. It still attracts the bear/leather crowd but it's become more trendy now.

    • Palms
        124 Oxford St

        Another good gay bar with a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere (if you're the type of person who gets sick of places where guys just go to show off their chests).

    • Qbar

    • Slide

    • The Slip Inn
        111 Sussex St (at the corner of King St)
        9299-4777, 8297-7000, email

        A short walk from Town Hall Station or Wynyard Station. This celeb magnet has four bars and two club areas. The Slip Bar has pool tables and Thai food, and the Sand Bar offers more privacy for chilling out. The garden overlooks Darling Harbour. The music is lush, the staff are brilliant and clearly enjoy their jobs. Plus, the food is great and the crowd worth oogling.

    • The Sly Fox

    • Stonewall Hotel

    • X-cite/Soho

      Comments from Utopians:

      "Taxi Club in Sydney has closed, unfortunately. It also might be worth mentioning that in NSW there are now some rather draconian liquor licensing laws which mean that you need to stay inside the bar before 1:30am or you won't be able to get back in!" -- Tim, Oct 22, 2014


    • The Bookshop Darlinghurst
        207 Oxford St, Darlinghurst
        9331-1103, email

        For more than 20 years the Bookshop Darlinghurst has been Australia’s premiere source of GLBT books, magazines, calendars and DVDs. Located in the heart of Oxford Street. If you’ve ever wondered what literary lesbians, bookish bears and pop culture poofs have in common, pay them a visit. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Cabaret Shows

    • Imperial Hotel
        35 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville

        A recent face lift and new lighting has only accentuated the dazzle at this famous Sydney drag bar, the location of club scenes in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert". Catch one of the all-pro shows in Priscilla's Bar, their cabaret. Five a night on weekends! Downstairs dance space. Open late. Attracts every kind of being around so it's also dished as being like the cantina from Star Wars (bitch!).

    • ARQ
        16 Flinders St, Taylor Square, Darlinghurst

        Shirts off! This hugely popular dance club has Dj spinning the latest beats and gogo boys on podiums, but the party crowd is the real show as they "gyre and gimble in the wabe". Hot men from all over the planet converge here on Friday night and shootin' off menergy all weekend long.

        Cockle Bay Wharf, Darling Harbour

        A massive club with various party rooms and a dance for for thousands, but only an occasional gay party - called Homesexual! - every few months. Pricy entry and drinks.

    • The Phoenix
        B/F 34 Oxford St, Darlinghurst

        Small dance bar is packed on weekends, starting late and running until morning. Shirts off, get cruising! RISING offers a predominately gay morning party with high energy house and a splash of 'hands in the air' every Sat and Sun morning from 5:30am.
