Description: Ladies and Gentlemen. Wilkommen, bienvenue, and welcome to the world of Slide! In here, life is beautiful and even the girls and boys are beautiful. For when you step beyond the facade of Slide, the extraordinary awaits...A living playground of sensational excess and perpetual pleasure for both body and soul. Home of the acclaimed El'Circo and the most exciting cabaret shows on Sydney's famed Oxford St, Slide is a classic cocktail mix of culinary artists, world-class mixologists, and globe-trotting sky-is-the-limit entertainers. But best of all is you're part of it too as Slide reawakens desires you've always had, only now the whole room is a singer, a stage, and a standing ovation, bringing everything to life and making you feel there's nowhere in the world you'd rather be. Sliding, soaring, swinging, and singing on a grand scale...Slide is truly unlike any other, where acrobats, clowns, and aerial artists strut their world-famous stuff; where Broadway meets burlesque at a unique pitch of perfection; and, where vaudeville and vamp spectacularly collide with awe-inspiring beauty. Will your host serve you dinner or will they start eating fire? Is the statue by the cocktail bar real? Will the stage burst to life with singers and showgirls? Or, is it all simply your imagination? Surely it doesn't really matter so long as you're having fun...So, why not join us for an evening of escapism soon.

“Slide - Great Place, Great Food, Great People.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Went to Slide again on Monday night for the Australian Children's Music Foundation Trivia night.

What a great night we had! So much fun! It was very well planned and ran smoothly. We were entertained by Tim Freedman, Michael Cormick, Peter Northcote and Guy Noble with Hosts Ian "Dicko" Dickson and the beautiful Cath Alcorn. To top it off we came third. We were a table of eight and are looking forward to the next one.

Slide is always such good value for money. A two course meal with a show for $90.00. Where else in Sydney would you be able to have such a great night?

The staff are all so attentive and don't disappear never to return.

We have been to Slide on many occasions for the Cabaret shows and also for the Gin Night Socials. Slide is my favourite place to be and it is because we are treated as if we are special and that is a lovely feeling.

A group of us (all ladies of course) are going again on Friday night to see the gorgeous Ben Mingay perform so there will be lots of hearts fluttering.

Just had a great night out at Slide with a group of friends who had organised a fundraiser - great food and service, lovely atmosphere - can't wait to go back again - only sorry I didn't win the raffle prize of tickets to the next show!

“A great night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

My husband and I recently saw 'Risque review' and had a thoroughly enjoyable night. The staff were very endearing, the food was very pleasant- particularly in the dinner-and -show genre, and the wine list included some very good wines. The show was excellent, with all the cast members able to display gymnastic/balletic skill ( the highlight was one beautiful dancer on pointe) and the production values were high.I was delighted to see the packed room, with patrons of all ages. Sydney does appreciate talent!

“Great place for a Date”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

My Husband and I don't get the chance to get often with 3 darling children, so when we do we make sure that is something unique and memorable. The show was just brilliant! just what you want for a hot date with your husband ;) the club was small and intimate and the service was brilliant. We loved the waitress that we had she was so attentive, friendly and helpful. We did not enjoy the food as much but only because we were not use to eating those types of food and we wanted to try something completely new that turned out not to be for our taste buds. In saying that I would go back for another show when they have something new on. Overall a truly excellent night.
