Midnight Shift

Midnight Shift

The Shift has been drawing ‘em in for decades. Sydney’s oldest gay venue is a sprawling, two-level watering hole and dance club with four bars, a pool table, and regular programming that always includes drag queens. Its weekly Bingay night hosted by Charisma Belle is a riot, and proceeds go towards ACON, the leading HIV prevention organization in New South Wales. Come here on weekends for dazzling drag productions upstairs.
