ARQ is thankfully much more than a gay night club. People of many sexual orientations go there. The sound system is great, the drinks well priced, the security protective in the face of appalling male aggression and the club is open all night.

Had an amazing time, bit of a que but it's to be expected when you are attending the biggest gay friendly spot in Sydney.

Me and gf's like to go there to have a good time and not get hassled by sleeze bags. Bar staff and security are really friendly and professional. Highly recommend this place.

Terrible service. Security waited until I had paid for myself and my partner to tell us our mate wouldn't be allowed in with their shoes. Was lied to by staff that they would get busy and all levels would open. I took my mates there given brilliant previous experiences. Nothing was as it used to be. Was conned out of money, I don't recommend. Check out kinselas or Stonewall.

Not into the bar tenders scamming customers. Serving drinks with no alcohol.
Ordered 3 vodka red bull's with double shots for $80.
The guy filled 3/4 of each glass with something from a pourer in the ceiling and the rest with red bull.
Unfortunately for him, I wasn't drunk.
Couldn't taste anything but watered down red bull.
When I went to complain, there were 3 other people making the exact same complaint that they couldn't taste any alcohol in their drink.
The guy hesitated before pouring 1 shot of alcohol in a glass and argued when I asked him to put some into the other 2 glasses before doing the same.
Magically the taste of vodka appeared.
Ridiculous.

waste of time, paid for entry just to be told my friend behind couldn't be let in due to her not having enclosed shoes when she was already inspected the first time but nothing was said. Proceeds to take my friend to cloat room only to pay $25 for another pair of shoes just to get in plus another $25 for entry. Walked in and turned right around. Felt conned out of atleast hundreds of dollars as a group of us in total.

Very disappointing. Could of have saved our time and money if were told vital information in regards of dresswear.

ARQ SYDNEY is the best club in Sydney. It is the place to be. The music ? makes you want to dance all night. The staff are amazing and so welcoming especially Robbie the most pleasant and welcoming person I have ever met, he makes me smile every time I am there. You won't be disappointed. LOVE IT ??'???'?

Arq is the most iconic nightclub in Sydney, greeted by professional and welcoming security crew at the front with the best customer service to fabulous bar crew what's not to love about the best nightclub in Sydney.

Don't bother, waited nearly two hours. Half of that was when i was at the front of the line, because they were only allowing ticketed people in. The ticket line was small but because people kept adding to it, it was never ending. Manager was also rude about it. $55 entry for longer waits for drinks because of only 2 bar staff and it was so overcrowded that you couldnt move

You need to reduce the bass. It's very off. Coming from a sound engineer. It's too disproportionate. Unpleasant. AND might I add.

Used be the best and now it's worst in town. The grand opening was horrifying.

No sound system upgrade. Rude staffs (still). Unnecessarily long queue.

Unnecessarily slow-moving queue at the door. Queue everywhere! Harsh bouncers also, such a turn-off

Good venue, but Trashy staffs. You won't be served if you're with colour. Avoid this place and support other gay clubs. They're too arrogant.

Where RACISM is alive and well! Rude security woman on a power trip refused us entry demanding ID documents be in English. No other bar security in the area required this. Ignore this dump and visit another place that is more welcoming.

Really helpful staff, I'm in a wheelchair and they assisted with getting me and my friends in quickly and safely, sadly no room for a wheelchair in the bathroom. Security helped carry me down and up a few stairs that stopped me from entering.

A lovely setting for a bar with a good atmosphere! Thought the guys behind the bar were a good laugh and served great drinks, hardly had to queue for drinks! Will be returning . A little trick, if you register on the site 909gay,com you will get a free room for 2 hours and a free drink

I was refused entry after being told by the bouncer that it was a private function. There was no mention of it on their promotion. They deserve a no star rating and they should drug and steroid test that bouncer and get him a mental health check. I will never go there again.

The venture was good, The Crowds was alright(Wish that there'll be more young and Hot looking guys ?) Music not that good(Need more mixer of music, not just Hardcore, Elctro, Trance, Need more Dance/Pop Dance musice, and maybe a bit of RNB.

Went here on Mardi gras closing party, paid a lot of money to get into the venue but disappointed that the drinks are quite expensive and also there's a $6 charge for coat check. The venue inside is really cold and didn't warm up until most of the crowd are inside. I like the sound system and lighting effects, making the club very elegant and seems very expansive. There's a small aquarium inside if you pay enough attention. There's also another level up where people can sit and chill or look down at the crowd and party from above.

The upstairs nightclub was excellent when we saw the Freemasons DJs. The space is not too large and the laser lights are amazing!!
