Play Bar


With increasingly strict lockout laws and federal arts cuts to boot, Sydney is city on the brink of cultural decay. Enter Surry Hills’ Play Bar, however, which might not fix the problem, but at least adds a touch of flavour with some quality live music. Or should I say, several flavours – with a myriad of plain old good music going down under their roof, from afrobeat, beat box championships and hip hop to funk, soul, reggae, DnB, and much more – plus a genuine devotion to spinning actual vinyl records. Add a filling Southern Americana menu to the mix, and you’ve got the perfect space for lovers of music, the arts, and a damn good time. 72 Campbell St, Surry Hills. 92800885.
