Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Vanguard

This is one of the most elegant clubs in Sydney and is an old favourite. It tends to host funk, jazz and blues gigs in an intimate, dinner-and-show environment. Taking its cue from the 1920s jazz scene, the Van, as it is otherwise known, has poppy red-coloured wallpaper, an ebony staircase leading upstairs and a raised stage that has welcomed a bevvy of luminaries like Hawksley Workman and Australia’s finest jazz trumpeter James Morrison. The tables for the dinner are all towards the front of the stage area and on the upper mezzanine level, but no matter where you sit you’ll always hear a flawless sound thanks to the Cobra Line Array sound system.
