Sydney’s Best Live Music Venues
Sydney has some wonderful live music venues. And if you are staying in one of the serviced apartments Sydney has to offer right in the CBD, without even knowing it you’re within walking distance to several of these locations. Here, we’ve listed the best places to check out live music, the next time you head to Sydney:
The Oxford Art Factory
Located on Oxford Street, the Factory has two areas for live music, sometimes both even offer free entry. A host of well-known bands grace the larger stage when they come to town if they want a more intimate setting. From alternative/grunge to dance the Oxford Art Factory is a great venue to check out all sorts of live music.
The Enmore Theatre
The Enmore located in Newtown is one of Sydney’s most well-known and long standing venues supporting live music acts both local and overseas. From rock bands to reggae funk bands, when it comes to the Enmore, you are guaranteed a good night out. Just check beforehand what’s on by going online and looking at their website.
The Annandale Hotel
The Annandale has long been known as Sydney’s favourite venue to watch live bands bash out tunes, hard rock style. While it’s not uncommon for them to host a night where there could be a hip hop crew or two, the Annandale has been known for decades as a predominantly rock music venue, with many a rock legend over the years gracing their stage.
The Vanguard, like the other venues listed above are pretty much on the list of Sydney’s music institutions and a must gig venue for up and coming bands. The Vanguard is great to check out the local talent and grab and nice meal while you’re at it. The Vanguard, like the Enmore is located in Newtown, not far from the city.
But it’s not just these larger venues that are hosting some great live music nights. Some of Sydney’s best bars and clubs also host nights of live music. The Beresford is one smoking hot location where one can experience live music and DJ tunes all in one evening. Great for those who like a bit of variety without having to change places.
Kit and Kaboodle has also shown that live music actually still exists in the heart of Kings Cross, with a night or two during the week dedicated to showcasing live music of all varieties.
So whether you are staying just out of the city or in one of the convenient apartments Sydney has to offer right in the heart of the CBD, there’s plenty of live music to check out in all directions. Whether it’s a short stroll or a 5 minute taxi ride the Sydney live music scene has lots to offer, no matter what genre of music you’re into.
