A couple friends and I went to Goldfish on a Sunday night. It really didn't get busy until about 2:00am. The dance floor got a little crowded, but that's what we were hoping for. One of my friends left early, but my other friend and myself stayed until 6:00am. There were still some people... read more

The new manager/ young guy they have pulling punters in is great, and the deal of a pizza and TWO cocktails for $5?! Insanely good value. But not when you wait an hour and are then told they ran out of what you ordered and the bar staff don't even answer you when you ask them a direct question. Also,... More

very good staff and the dj makes it a good venue to have a dance and flirt with the human traffic. Recommend trying the kamakaze cocktail

I've been frequenting the venue for years. What started out as a Sunday sess with my hospitality friends with Martini Club there and then lots of un planned nights to the cross, we ended up there like homing pigeons. This is for me by far one of the best venues around for good quality, proper house music. You know whatever... More

A good place in Kings Cross, with good resident DJs and also famous guest DJs visiting fron time to time. $10 entrance on Fri, $20 on Sat. Bouncers atthe entrance sometimes refuse entry to people but not too often abd they're not too picky about the dresscode. Music is good and it goes on till late (after 3am). Staff is... More

I've there once while visiting Sydney on a Thursday I guess. The environment is great as the decor is beautiful and the music is nice. Moreover, I enjoyed the drinks, the service and the hostess was friendly and helpful with me and my friends. However, if you are someone simple that doesn't have a pretentious and gloating attitude you might... More

I recently organised my 23rd Birthday event at Goldfish for a small group of girlfriends on a Saturday night. The night was a great success! I was given a VIP area for free and presented with birthday cupcakes, a card and a complimentary bottle of champagne on arrival. We were continuously looked after by the staff who made us feel...

So I booked a large area for a lot of people for free, with no bar tab. I arrived and was given a complementary bottle of bubbly, and told that they had also ordered some cupcakes for us, all free. Throughout the night, service was excellent, nobody had to wait more than a couple of minutes to get a drink,... More

Paid 25 bucks to get inside. Had time for two glasses of water before getting pushed out by the security without a proper explanation (which I'm still waiting for). Couldn't get back inside while lots of people were being admitted for free. If that's not prejudice I don't know what is.
