A long-standing pillar in Sydney’s LGBT+ nightlife, ARQ is one of the city’s most beloved venues.

Since its 1999 inception, the queer hub has been nestled in the inner-city eastern suburb of Darlinghurst. Funky and permanently buzzing, the rainbow-striped district is famous for its LGBT+ scene, international restaurants and edgy shops selling vintage apparel.

ARQ sits in a two-story building covered in dark blue bricks.

Recently refurbished and ready to roar, the Sydney club is equipped with an unmatchable audio-visual system. Spanning multiple spaces – including a cocktail lounge and arcade-style rooms – ARQ knows how to keep its patrons entertained.

While the nightlife venue keeps things simple when it comes to decor, it packs a punch with a performance stage.

When drag shows aren’t on tonight’s agenda, local DJs take over the audio decks to deliver a foot-tapping mix of commercial house. On some nights, timeless pop hits take center stage to create a robust music repertoire.

Since ARQ is fully committed to promoting queer culture, members of the community are the ones filling its dance floor, but allies aren’t out of the picture either.

Embrace the electric embrace of ARQ club, where pulsating beats ignite your soul, and the symphony of euphoria echoes through the night.
