The Music is Loud and Lights Low 




We take music very seriously and you will find live entertainment to suit almost every taste, whether you prefer a relaxed Sunday afternoon acoustic session, live DJ's or bands, you'll find it.  


Many of our venues feature regular live music and DJ takeovers several nights a week, so you have the chance to take in some quality live entertainment, topped off with delicious food, top-notch beverages, and a great vibe. 


We are proud that many of our venues have remained stalwarts of the Sydney live music scene, staying strong to their ‘live music’ roots.


The Inner West has long been the heartland of Sydney’s live music scene. A cultural institution, some of the best live acts in the country rock the Waywards stage at The Bank and The Marly is the place to see new music on the weekends. 


Flying the flag for Sydney’s live scene higher than just about anyone, the King Cross Hotel is one of the historic nightlife precinct’s most iconic entertainment venues. KXH supports the entertainment industry, hosting live gigs in partnership with independent bastions of Sydney arts and culture like Keep Sydney Open and FBi Radio. 


Also check out romantic soul and R&B stylings at the Opera Bar, DJ's at Goros and the Golden Sheaf in Double Bay with its infamous Shwednesday or Sheaf Wednesday to the rest of us.
