Your choice of strip clubs in Sydney is not as plentiful as it once was. The Emerald City’s copped a fair bit of flak lately for being boring, and it’s not entirely unwarranted. With the notorious lockout laws strangling the city’s night-time economy, and venues closing left right and centre because of it, Sydney isn’t the playground it was back in the ’90s and ’00s.
That’s not to say you should stay home and find something wholesome to do. There’s still plenty of nudity to be found in old Sydney town. Here we’ve compiled the best venues that serve alcohol, food, and naked women. From daggy dives with neon lighting to the classiest gentleman’s clubs this side of New York and Vegas, Sydney still has a pretty good selection of adults-only venues.
1. Sefton Playhouse
The self-proclaimed “most successful strip club in Australia and New Zealand” is Western Sydney’s premier destination venue for a quality serving of ‘T’ and ‘A’. The club has amassed quite an enthusiastic following since opening doors in 1984 and continues to titillate the masses with the quality of its dancers.
It’s a little bit of dive bar, a little bit of titty-bar (very American in style), with a killer food menu, great drinks, a bottle shop, loads of private areas and even a kebab cart for when it gets late (the Sefton Playhouse is open until 4 am). Ample parking is also a big plus when compared to the lack of parking at the typical Sydney CBD strip clubs. This is a genuinely fun place; even if you’re not out for a long, boozy bucks party you’re guaranteed a good time, at any time of day. Plus, free door entry.
Address: 54 Clapham Rd, Sefton NSW 2162
Hours: Mon-Thur 9:30am-4am, Fri 9:30am-5am, Sat 9am-5am, Sun 9:30am-12am
Phone: (02) 9644 2174
2. Twin Peeks Lingerie Restaurant
If you’re looking for the best strip club in Sydney for a bucks party, skip the rest and head to Twin Peeks. With no pressure to pay a bomb for private dances and special shows, they focus on great food, service, and quality dancers that want you to have a great night.

Far from a seedy strip club, Twin Peeks is defined as a “lingerie restaurant,” so you can see why it has long been a favourite venue for Sydneysiders and visitors alike. Within its walls, class and charm pair with privacy, intimacy and nudity. Three cabaret strip shows are performed during lunch and dinner, so there’s no reason to scroll on your phone during this dinner date.
Twin Peeks also caters for corporate events, if that’s something your colleagues are into. Better OK it with them first. If you do stop by for a feed and a show, ask for the dessert special.
Address: 134 Forbes St, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011
Hours: Mon-Fri 12:30-11:30pm, Sat 12-11:30pm
Phone: 0415 587 315
3. Velvet Underground
If you’re looking for a clean and modern strip club to visit in Sydney head into the CBD and find Velvet Underground. This club’s greatest strength is the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, who all help contribute to your experience, albeit a sleazy one. Dancers are elegant, fun and the private rooms are intimate, for very sexy private shows. Arguably the best part of the experience is the tabletop dancers working the cocktail bar.
In terms of food and drinks, the bar is well-stocked, and there’s just the right amount of chairs stage-side, for getting up close and personal with the dancers, without it feeling too much like a sausage-fest.
Address: 64 Clarence St, Sydney NSW 2000
Phone: (02) 8964 9911
4. Men’s Gallery
One of the classier strip clubs in Sydney that’s great for an after-work drink, Men’s Gallery has been a stalwart of the local scene for decades, catering to the masses and never compromising on the quality of performers who grace their stage. It’s also a great choice for a stag party, with the sexy and charming dancers keeping groups entertained for what’s surely an unforgettable night. Private Rooms are where you go for a full-nude show, but we’ve been told dancers can be a little pushy for private shows.
Address: 41 Oxford St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010
Hours: Mon-Sat 6pm-3am, Sun 7pm-3am
Phone: (02) 9232 1800
5. Minx Gentlemen’s Bar & Restaurant
Established with high-spending corporate types in mind, Minx is less of a buck’s night venue and more the place to go at the end of signing that big deal (or merger, or whatever it is corporations do). This Sydney club features a modern interior and plenty of dark, fine woods – cedar maybe, I don’t know wood. It’s a masculine room – as well suited for sipping single malts as it is for spending quality time with attractive dancers in private.
Address: 72 Pitt St, Sydney NSW 2000
Hours: Thur & Sat 8pm-3am, Wed-Fri 6pm-3am
Phone: 1300 789 798
6. World Famous Showgirls
One of the original titty bars on the notorious “Golden Mile”, Show Girls is everything you’d look for in a typical Kings Cross strip club. Sticky carpets, neon, plenty of mirrors and, of course, an abundance of things to look at. With the most beautiful women from around Australia, it features the largest central stage every night with anywhere from three-to-six dancers at the same time. Plus, Mega Strip happens twice nightly where the dancer tally ramps up to ten all at the same time. Definitely worth a visit, even if it’s just to tick it off the bucket list.
Address: 39 Darlinghurst Rd, Potts Point NSW 2011
Hours: Mon-Sun 8pm-4am
Phone: (02) 9331 0690
7. Petersham Inn
Petersham Inn is a strip pub where you can take a geez at the cute dancers that dominate the stage (when they’re not pouring beers and liaising with the clientele). There’s a pool table, sports on the big screens (including Main Boxing and UFC matches), and a great playlist that sets the mood for a fun time all around. Being a pub, they also do food (most of which is Thai food) that’s perfect if you want to settle in for a big night of babes and beers. Just be careful with your drinks and don’t finish them too quickly, you might have a bloke dressed in a security costume come up for a few words.
Address: 386 Parramatta Rd, Petersham NSW 2049
Hours: Mon-Wed 10am-12am, Thur-Sat 10am-1:30am, Sun 10am-10pm
Phone: (02) 9560 9658
8. Magic Men
If the lure of naked women doesn’t get your engine racing, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered as well. World-renowned male revue Magic Men Sydney is a one-stop shop for all your entertainment needs. With drinks, dinner and party packages available, this isn’t just a host of male strippers hitting the stage, Magic Men Sydney is an entirely visceral experience. Bring the girls and make a full night out it.
