The Art Deco building may have been a bank in a former life, but its current one couldn’t be any further from the poorly matched neckties and quiet order of days past. Go beyond the flaming torches at the entrance, and you’ll find yourself at Slide.

Slide is Sydney’s premier burlesque and cabaret lounge, transformed into a gorgeous set depending on which day of the week you wander in on. There’s the Parisian-inspired Risque Revue on Wednesday night, a sensual, glamourous production featuring burlesque, pole dancing and aerial acts and a certain bathtub routine. Saturdays are home to the long-running El’Circo, where the charm of the cabaret meets the magic of the circus, and you meet a nine-course degustation menu. Their famous Gin Mill Social nights are held once a month, and Slide is transformed into a 1920s speakeasy, where getting in involves dressing up and dropping a secret code to the bouncer.

Like a sleek, grown-up playground for the senses, Slide features an assortment of acts and entertainers in their show program, from vocalists to aeralists, ice skaters, pole dancers, ballet dancers, and violin players who set their instruments on fire. The bar is well-stocked, and the cocktail choice is wide for those moments you feel hot under the collar (and you will).

All performances are accompanied by multiple-course menus and the venue is now taking bookings for Christmas parties. For those hunting for a unique gifts for Christmas, Weddings, Graduations, Birthdays etc. Slide has a fun variety of gift vouchers for a range of their shows to select from

    Had the pleasure of going to Slide last year. We saw the showgirl. It was the most fantastic show and Slide was such an intimate venue. If I go to Sydney again will definitely go again.
