Place where the night lights up. Very nice places where you can spend the night listening to music and drinking in company.

We found a good little Thai restaurant just off Darlinghurst Road and enjoyed a cheap, good meal. At night, the draconian and some might say illiberal Liberal - Nationals Government's 0200 hours lockout laws have led to a much quieter 'The Strip.' I always previously...More
