“Don't go there if your Black, gay, or foreign”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

I have never been more offended than to have the straight Middle Eastern Bouncers intimidate our group at what I thought was a gay club-they didn't like the fact that gay guys had straight girlfriends who wanted to go with us out. They discriminated against the girls with us and would only let in the guys-I have dealt with the aggressive manner of their bouncers previously when they have made it known they are not approving of the gay lifestyle from their religious beliefs and enjoy taking out their aggression whenever possible on patrons. I would strongly not recommend this place as a stop for a gay place to visit and have a drink-there are many great gay friendly places that don't require security as a first port of stop-Americans, Europeans, Africans, and South Americans especially be cautious-hope this saves you some of the troubles we have had-but still enjoy Sydney and Australia-apart from this dump it is a great city

I agree, stonewall is GREAT! the drag shows are hilarious and theres a few floors to choose. I preffered ground floor but it gets mega busy so sometimes they just wont let you in and you have to go upstairs, a MUST for any gay traveller visiting sydney! or straight I guess too!

“Hot Gay Boys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2006

I went to Stonewall for my first time out here from America and I loved it. Three floors of Hot Hot Boys all partying. Loads of eye candy if your into goodlooking boys with their shirts off you'll love it.
Great pick up place!
