The recent repealing of the lockout laws in Sydney is an opportunity to begin restoring the city’s global standing by signalling the start of a sophisticated and vibrant night life.

Katherine O’Regan, Executive Director of the Sydney Business Chamber said: “If Sydney is to maintain its place as a global city, government, business and the community need to work collaboratively to create a safe and diversified night life, that doesn’t just revolve around drinking.”

 “The repealing of the lock out laws is a rallying call for the beginning of a new world-class nightlife, making Sydney an attractive and inclusive after dark destination with a range of entertainment activities and venues suitable for all ages,” added Katherine.

Locals, tourists and business people alike are encouraged to enjoy the repeal and head out at night to experience a range of cultural displays and events, live music and other performance options, late night casual and formal dining alternatives and retail offerings.

Businesses open later can also capitalise on patronage from the estimated 200,000 people across Sydney who work the night shift including those in hospitality, retail, nursing, first responders, transport and distribution.
