Every week I will blog about events I think are worth checking out!
Be it weekly or one-off nightclub events or scheduled concerts or festivals, I will keep you updated on where to head for a good night out in our city! :)
If anyone has any suggestions feel free to contact me and I will go through and check it out.
Promoters contact me if you think your event is worth attending and I'll come through with my girls... ;)
Here are my choices for week 1:
HOT SPOT 1
SWAG at TRADEMARK HOTEL - 1 Bays water Road KINGS CROSS
HIP to the HOP
If you are looking to be a part of the growing phenomenon that is "HIP HOP" in this city then bring out your best "SWAGGER" and shuffle on down to TRADEMARK HOTEL on a THURSDAY night!
Playing the BEST & latest HIP HOP music every Thursday night "SWAG" is the place to see some of Sydney's "HIP" characters busting out the latest craze on the dance floor.
So if you wanna get your "DOUGIE & CAT DADDY on, then make sure you get in early to reserve your spot on the floor.
Hosted by HIP HOP power couple Ian and Ally Reid who are never short of ideas to keep the crowd coming every week,
SWAG is definitely the place to go to feel like you are clubbing in the states!
Ian and Ally sure know how to throw a party with a difference and you WILL be entertained!
This week they have the one and only OBIE TRICE hosting the night.
Go on - get yo SWAG on! ;)
HOT SPOT 2
CHERRY BAR at THE STAR CASINO - 80 Pyrmont Street PYRMONT
Sweet like CHERRY
Fancy a Cocktail or 3? Then head on over to Cherry Bar! Hands down this is the new HOT SPOT in Sydney to enjoy a GOOD cocktail.
Located in the Sydney's new re-furbished STAR, Cherry Bar is it's best kept secret!
When you walk into Cherry you will be greeted by some very beautiful girls dressed in silky grey numbers, there to welcome & conversate with you and to happily take your order.
Vegas style baby - with class!
The cocktail menu is uniquely exquisite and I like the fact the menu has these cute sayings strategically placed through it.
The bar staff at Cherry are PROFESSIONAL on another level. They all specialise in the art of cocktail making and excel in the area of "customer service". You will feel very special in this place, especially if you situate yourself around the top shelf marble bar.
Look out for Dominic, flair specialist extraordinaire, you will be amazed at how skillfull this cat is.
The DJ's supplied by Ministry of Sound release smooth sounds through the high tech sound system all night long!
Cherry is a great place to start your night or to chill out with cocktails and friends.
HOT SPOT 3
HOUSESOLUTION - Zeta Bar, The Hilton Hotel, George Street SYDNEY
Tribal Dance Solution
If you feel like SHAKING your "CULO" in a classy environment then head on over to at Zeta Bar at the Hilton.
I love the fact that when you catch the lift up you walk straight in onto the dance floor.
The DJ Antonio Zambarelli plays the best mix - and I do mean "best mix" because you don't even realise the next song has started until your hear the chorus or until your body changes rhythm - of soulful house and tribal beats so be prepared to sweat it out on the dance floor.
Check out my previous blog below for more info on HOUSESOLUTION at Zeta.
You can catch me there most Saturday nights! :)
RIB and Antonio have kept the party going at Zeta bar since 2005 and they are still going strong 7 years on.
When you arrive just look for RiB at the front door between 9.30pm -12.30am, he is the tall dark guy with the stylish outfit on - you can't miss him!
You can follow these 2 on their Housesolution community page.
