We take over one of Sydney’s most luxurious poolside venues every year for an event that makes a splash!

Hidden high up in Sydney's down town skyline is the Ivy Pool Club, a secret enclave of extravagance. Featuring gently swaying palm trees, private cabanas, high-end cocktails and pool side DJs, the Pool Club is the zenith of summertime glamour.

In this sexy and intimate playground, handsome lifeguards watch on as those below frolic with style up to the max - and a minimum of clothing.

No matter where you are at the party, you won't miss a minute of the fun - the thumping poolside beats can be heard underwater, and the change rooms have their very own disco.

February 27 @ Ivy Pool Club, George Street, Sydney.


Are you out for a good time? Roll up, roll up, the most fabulous show on Earth is about to begin. The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is rolling into town!

A classy diva like you doesn’t do crowds… just rock up with your tickets to Parade Sideshow and you’ll get exclusive access to bars, great food stalls, lives screens, bathrooms and seats so you won’t miss a moment of the action. It’s totally you!

The day after the big Parade and Party, say farewell to Mardi Gras like the legend you are at Laneway.

Join your fellow revelers for live music, pop up drag shows, world class DJs and a diva or two in the Beresford Hotel and the laneway beside it.

A cherished tradition, The Laneway began as a portable stereo and a couple of milk crates on Hill St, and has evolved to a spectacular street party celebration you will not want to miss.

The Laneway party is always a sell-out, so do not delay in getting your tickets to the final Mardi Gras extravaganza!

March 5 @ The Beresford Hotel, Darlinghurst.
