Sydney Knows How to Party Like Nowhere ElseSydney natives, commonly referred to as Sydneysiders, know how to have a good time. While Australia itself is known for its laid back attitudes and the ability to have a good time, any time, there’s something special about the iconic city of Sydney that draws people in and offers them a great time. If you’re looking for a good time down under, Sydney is the place to party.
The nightlife in Sydney is diverse and vibrant. Visitors to the NSW capital city have plenty to choose from when it comes to nocturnal entertainment. Bars, pubs and hotels, the traditional drinking establishments favoured by locals looking for a good drink and a place to sleep it off, are all plentiful and stay busy year-round. Depending on what your tastes are, there’s something for everyone in Sydney.
Hotels are the traditional drinking establishment of choice for many Australians. They owe their name to the fact that they have traditionally been a place to get a good drink and a place to stay afterwards. Some of the most popular nighttime destinations in Sydney are hotels, including the Argyle Hotel, with its unique blend of trendy chic and relaxing ambience, not to mention five bars and plenty of tasty food. The Argyle is a great place to start or end the night, whichever you prefer.
Another great hotel is the Caringbah Hotel, perfect for sports fans since it has plenty of big screen televisions playing all the live sporting events. The hotel has three bars, a great selection of cold beers on tap and a great local atmosphere. This is definitely a more relaxed environment than some hotels, but it can still get pretty busy at night.
Bars in Sydney tend to be the trendier, more upscale places. They are the place to see and be seen, and you’ll see plenty. Party the night away at Hugo’s Lounge, one of the best nightspots in Australia. Cocktails and pizza are the menu of choice here and the dress code is pretty much ‘impressive’, to match the upscale décor.
The Pontoon Bar is located on Darling Harbour and it has gained a reputation as a great place to go for a great night out. Pumping music, futuristic décor and plenty of drinks make this a great venue for a girls’ or boys’ night out.
Pubs are more popular with the tourists and college crowds. Their reputation for good food and cheap drinks make them an ideal choice for travelers. For the traditional pub experience, try The Shakespeare in Surrey Hills or the Hotel Bondi with its amazing beach views.
Some parts of Sydney are just more conducive to partying than others, including the saucy Kings Cross and beautiful Bondi Beach areas. With loads of clubs, pubs and people, there’s no way to avoid a good time.
