The Solotel Group of diverse restaurants and bars is going into maximum party mode as a proud supporting partner for Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and Sydney WorldPride 2023.

From Kings Cross Hotel transforming into the Queens Cross Hotel to The Bank’s Birdcage parties in Newtown to The Clock’s boozy loved-up brunches in Surry Hills, there’ll be no shortage of colourful celebrations to enjoy.

Fostering a close, transparent and authentic relationship with LGBTIA+ communities is very important to the Solotel Group. Many of their venues are located in the heart of suburbs known for their queer culture – such as Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Paddington, Kings Cross and the Inner West. Solotel is committed to continually being a pillar of the LGBTQIA+ communities – promoting equality, diversity, inclusivity and safety through events, hospitality, values and policies.



Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we celebrate and work.
