The Exchange is made up of joint venues, Q Bar, Spectrum and Phoenix, all of which bring to you a variety of indie bands, hip hop and techno till beyond dawn.

One22, located in a little hideaway on Pitt Street, is a jewel of solid house and techno beats blasting over an insane sound system.
Spice Cellar, the home of legendary Sydney day club Spice, is a little classier than One22 but filled with the same filthy techno beats to satisfy any raver; Plus it’s a prefect midway point for any club and bar hopper.
Not too far away form Spice Cellar is Civic Underground, set up with a crazy sound system it has been home to the likes of Kyle Hall and Rick Wade, Space Dimension Controller and Vladislav delay.

The Marquee, found in Sydney Casino, The Star, this Las Vegas style venue brings in some major international acts through its doors. With it’s massive sound system and crazy set up its no wonder Djs such as Avicii and Calvin Harris have graced its stage. Be warned though, this place is expensive!!

The Ivy is a little more affordable to an average person like us.
