Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

Minx
Female-friendly and super-classy, this striptease club is on the nicer side of naughty.
The Basement
The Basement is an icon in the music scene and Sydney's beating jazz heart, hosting all the greats like Dizzie Gillespie and Herbie Hancock, and more eclectic modern acts and international DJs.
Bada Bing
As classy and upmarket as they come, Bada Bing is the sort of place that attracts well-behaved stag nights and groups of females, with sexy, sassy surroundings, glittering beaded curtains and plush furnishings.
Bar Me
It's Australia's oldest jazz club and its hallowed ground, according to Australian musicians.
Good God Small Club
This supper club and self-dubbed 'danceteria' is set in an attractive old Spanish quarter restaurant with Flintstone-style faux rock walls, plants hanging from the ceiling and regular club nights.
Showgirls
They say every seat is a front-row seat at Showgirls, because at any one time there are between three and six girls writhing around seductively on stage, which is a whole lot of visual stimulation at once.
The Vanguard
In the heartland of eclectic Newtown amid a vast array of ethnic eateries and second-hand stores lies the Vanguard.
Piano Room
Basked in the red neon glow of the iconic Coca-Cola sign, the Piano Room is in the heart of Sydney's red light district with a lofty vista over William Street.
Ivy
A playground for the ultra-glamorous, Ivy is Sydney's ultimate den of debauchery.
Enmore Theatre
This grand old dame was built in 1908 and opened as a theatre in 1912, but now hosts everything from rock bands and DJs to international comedy acts and orchestra.
Porky’s Nite Spot
A no-frills strip joint, famed for seed and sleaze but still very much a must-see place.
