Went there on a Thursday night and was let in by security with no problems. Went back on a Friday and was asked to present ID. When I presented my US Driver's License, the bouncer at the door said that it was not a valid ID and was about to refuse me entry. My partner presented his UK Driver's License and was also told that it was not a valid ID. Apparently, only Australian IDs and official passports are valid. While I understand the need to check ID's to eAustralia is 18 and I'm 35 and my partner is 45!! We remained calm throughout and questioned how tourists are supposed to know that only Australian IDs or passports are valid, and most tourists would not usually carry their passport on a night out. The bouncer then proceeded to show us the policy on the board. After we told him we were there the night before and that no one asked for ID, he decided to let us in. Friday night is men only. The crowd is nice and friendly, but the whole not having a valid Australian ID thing put me off. If that wasn't bad enough, they were charging people $5 AUS to go up into the dark room. ARE THEY SERIOUS?! Australia is getting ridiculous with their rules and regulations of late, and the calibre of guys that I saw in the bar definitely does not warrant such a velvet rope policy. It's no wonder all the hot Aussie boys have fled Oz for Europe and beyond.

Too many angry girls, and the music was really boring - very old. On the plus side, the drinks are cheap!
