For those who have been waiting to know more about the much-anticipated, late-night live music venue from the team at Odd Culture Group – we have news for you.
Pleasure Club will open on 23 February in Sydney’s inner west suburb of Newtown, equipped with its 4am closure every evening from Wednesday through to Sunday.
The venue takes it inspiration from the small bars of New York and Paris, and will host a unique late-night food, drink, and music experience for Sydneysiders.

Odd Culture Group has also revealed that Pleasure Club will host a cocktail lab run by the group’s Creative Beverage Lead and General Manager Sam Kirk alongside Re-‘s Matt Whiley.

“It’s immersive, experimental, subjective, confronting and stirs something in you which is everything the Pleasure Club entertainment bill seeks to offer,” says Medcalf when speaking to the program.
“Surrender to your primal instincts, embrace the allure of sin, and revel in the celebration of the unique and unconventional. When that curtain opens, expect the
