Sydney

The Sydney Morning Herald's daily entertainment section is the most informative guide to the city's pubs and clubs. For club-scene coverage—who's been seen where and what they were wearing—pick up a free copy of The Music magazine (www.themusic.com.au) available at just about any Oxford Street café or pub. The Ever Guide (www.everguide.com.au) is another good online source of entertainment information.

All bars and clubs listed here are open daily unless noted. Entry is free unless we list a cover charge.
