Three more venues have been granted approval for later trading hours under the State Government’s 30-minute compromise over the controversial Sydney lockout laws.
Famous Sydney live music venue The Basement will now be able to admit patrons until 2am and serve drinks until 3:30am, as will Kings Cross venue O’Malley’s Hotel and Pitt Street’s The Republic Hotel.
The news was announced by Minister for Racing Paul Toole this morning.
The three new locations bring the number of lockout-exempt venues to ten, alongside the Palace Hotel, ArtHouse Hotel and Mr B’s Hotel in the CBD, Stonewall Hotel in Oxford St, World Bar in Kings Cross and the Observer Hotel at The Rocks.
