Kings Cross / Potts Point / Woollomoloo, Sydney
Kings Cross is all about sex... but it's okay to take the family. Of course that depends on what sort of family you are but basically don't worry about visiting the area. It's not really dangerous but I wouldn't recommend staying there if you want a nice quiet hotel.
The main attraction is the strip clubs. You will find men asking you to 'come check out the girls' most hours of the day. Don't fall for any of their tricks to get you in there, if you come back in five minutes you will stillget their 'discount'.
These strip clubs welcome anyone of all ages and aren't too threatening. Some are free while others charge $10 - $15 per person. The better quality ones charge. You can tell buy the guys who wear suits rather than daggy shirts.
CarWash in Kings Cross. Nice disco with danceble 70s and 80s music. Entrance Saturday is 5$. Beers are small but only 3$.
The music is really nice. The audience is alright too, many backpackers. The atmosphere is fine too, just relaxed and you can be yourself. The disco is in the middle of Kings Cross, which is a good area to go out. It's not the safest place so don't come by yourself. (in most cases you'll be alright though, it's not that bad)
Dress Code: Not really, but you feel more comfortable if you wear cloths you'd wear if you wanna go out, so no sport shoes and old sweater. Though the music is 90% 70s and 80s there is no need to wear jackson five wicks or shiney pink trousers if you know what I mean.
Directions: In Kings Cross, a suburb near the centre of Sydney. You can walk from Town Hall or Hyde Park or take a train, bus or cab. It's on Victoria Rd, on the right if you get out of the trainstation.Add to your Trip Planner
You can find here night clubs , pubs and Internet cafes all around. A little bit dark, dirty and scarry, but if you want to use cheap internet just go there.
There is something here for everyone. It has a relaxed and fun atmosphere, numerous dance floors and pool tables, ... and of course - people watching. And it's friendly.
