In terms of finding the venue, it is obscure and street signage was incorrect. The foyer is open, not air-conditioned. The linear design meant that even though I entered first, I chose to wait at the wrong end of the foyer and got seated last....More

Great location - didn't even know this theatre existed. It's a short walk from Kings Cross station (beats trying to park anywhere nearby) and there are loads of eateries close by. Drinks and snacks can be purchased at the bar and taken into the shows....More

Just a short walk away from Kings Cross Station and Darlinghurst Fire Station sits a subtly visible and quaint theatre space. The ground floor houses the cocktail bar, FOH and ticketing counter; an all-in-one space that patrons would feel warm and welcomed by the buzz...More

Any visit to the The Stables is well worth it, just for the intimacy of sitting a metre away from the actors. The current production - GLORIA - is outstanding, as the story of an actor not always confident of her ability to obtain and...More

Great theatre space. Shame about the play, Literati. God awful. Atrocious in its faux faux pomposity. The double negative is deliberate. What presents as satire upon the aristocracy falls short. Instead it is tiresome, shallow, overtly cliched. Nothing subtle here ladies. The incessant rhyming is...More

Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
