Do it for LOLs

First Thursday of each month

Start a new month with a night of laughs and cocktails, courtesy of some of Sydney’s favorite fun people. On the first Thursday of every month, you’ll find the Rock Lily stage filled with comedians like Al Del Bene, Nat Damena, and Christian Elderfield. Best of all, the show is free, leaving you with more money to put into what really matters: food and drink. Lock your tickets to the Rock With Laughter comedy night here.

Relax with acoustic tunes

8 p.m. – 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at Rock Lily

If you’re looking for cooler than crazy Friday vibes, Unplugged at Rock Lily is for you. Every Friday from 7 p.m. one of Sydney’s acoustic musicians takes the stage, dropping a selection of new and old favorites – think Oasis ‘Wonderwall or a good ol’ Vance Joy cover. The perfect setting for an after-work drink or catching up with friends, add Unplugged to your Friday night agenda here.

Turn it on late at night

10 p.m. – Late, Fridays at Rock Lily

If the drinks keep flowing after Unplugged, continue the evening at Rock Lily, which has dance tracks starting at 10 p.m. on Fridays thanks to their resident DJs. And the best part? The choice of music is in your hands. Late night request line gives you the power to ask for your favorite tracks all night long, now it’s our kind of party. Call your dance floor buddy, apply for Dua Lipa, and consider Friday night sorted.

Throw it on the dance floor

10 p.m. – Late, Saturdays at Rock Lily

If you’re a secret ABBA fan, or really love breaking it down in Africa by Toto (who doesn’t?), We’ve found the place to go on Saturday night. Light up the dance floor at The vault from 10 p.m. every Saturday. Ditch your favorite tunes from the ’70s,’ 80s and ’90s, slip on your bell bottom and enjoy the vibes back this weekend at Rock Lily. Better yet, Suite Az will headlining on December 18 and launch the best tracks from the ’80s.

Go to happy hour

4 pm-7pm, every day at the star

Let’s be honest, we would all like happy hour to last a little longer. Well, it turns out that dreams really do come true, as The Star’s happy hour lasts 180 minutes every day. If math isn’t your thing, it’s a full three hours as a team. Get your team together and start the weekend off with $ 5 house spirits, beer and wine in every bar in the casino.

Consider your social calendar sorted through The star, which has you covered pretty much every night of the week. We will meet over there.
