24 Bayswater Road, Kings Cross, Sydney
A brief sojorn down leafy Bayswater Rd in Sydney’s Kings Cross will soon bring you to No. 24, an historic 4 storey Victorian terrace house and home to countless legends, curiosities, and varied debauchery over the last century. In the 1940’s the grand old building was an extravagant whore-house, in the 80’s an infamous artist’s squat, and today it stands transformed as Sydney’s most unique bar and nightclub experience – that preferred palace of perennial partying, The World Bar.
Our maze of rooms, booths, stairwells and hidden areas is open for exploration 7 days and nights a week, accented by an expansive outdoor terrace garden. A wide range of clientele enjoy an eclectic mash of entertainment - local indie bands ply their noisy craft in Parisian-inspired nooks; international DJs push cutting-edge club sounds in a NY-style underground nightclub; young artists exhibit their work in an upstairs gallery room that later becomes a rave-cave. Hipsters, clubkids, travelers and locals - people of all ages and walks of life - make up the thousands who cross our threshold weekly. In a matter of hours, a space populated by civilised sippers enjoying a cab sav and a gourmet pizza early evening evolves to become a surging mass of dancefloor sexiness and stays that way til sun-up. Rinse, repeat.
We’re literally world famous for our Teapot™ Cocktails, a beverage designed for sharing amongst like-minded reprobates, in shots poured from the spout of a teapot. Our sister bars in Auckland and Queenstown are renowned for them too. If you haven’t tried one, we imagine they’ll cross your path soon enough. Like Kings Cross itself, we at The World Bar hope to embody art, mischief, music, and embrace characters of all eccentricities, from all over the world. Each element is indebted to the historical suburb that has paradoxically brought all of this together.
