The Cross was Sydney's legendary redlight and party district. In the past few years it has lost its glory but its still popular with backpackers and retains some signs of life. Surry Hills is an upmarket hipster district with some good bars and places to eat. Darlinghurst is Sydney's gay heartland. Between the 3 suburbs are lots of good bars and a few colourful characters.
This is the main nightlife district for Sydney. Girls from all over town flock here on the weekend. The main streets are packed and there are plenty of girls to talk to during the day. A lot of backpackers choose to stay around here particularly in Kings Cross. Despite the Lockout laws affecting the area it is still a good place to party. Check out The Soda Factory on quiet nights. ... ... ...
Always a good vibe. This bar is what the Kings Cross party scene is all about now. Drinks are expensive but the teapots are worth trying. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday bring in lots of pretty girls. The crowd here is very young. Bouncers here are over the top and you may have to pay $20 cover on busy nights.
