Chinese Laundry is well known for being an "open" dance floor (no one cares how you dance, just have fun - this attracts an interesting crowd too). It is usually stays open until 3am - 4am and they regularly have international artists. With big name artists you really should pre-purchase tickets or get in as early as possible (I saw... More

So lined up for 20mins to get in, ID checked by two security guards paid the $30 door charge then at top of the stairs told to leave by security because looked intoxicated.

Expensive entry fee, and expensive drinks that you have to line up for for over 10 minutes. Music is quite substandard, and it is beyond impossible to move from room to room (or on the floor). Far better nightclubs in Sydney. Save your dosh.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
