Thursday has a massive uni crowd with house music (and an RnB room upstairs) that historically was a backpacker crowd. Lines can get over 30 minutes from about 10pm depending on the night. Entry ranges from $15-25 depending on whether you're purchasing tickets on the door or online. Over 2 000 people go to this every Thursday.
Having started in 2015, iRock, in addition to Ivy Thursday, promote Argyle Fridays, a weekly pub crawl and previously Marquee Saturdays. Across all their events is a focus on elaborate entertainment, including dancers, CO2 cannons, confetti and occasionally accessories.
Ivy Precinct opened in 2007 and is actually a precinct, surrounded by several exclusive bars, restaurants and private areas. On a Thursday, the party is in the mainroom, RnB room and the upstairs/balcony area. The sound, lighting and decor is impeccable. When it's full, there's nothing like it in Sydney and it's nightlife scene.
In terms of consistent busyness and the variety in entertainment offerings, Ivy is definitely up there. To add to this, there are the multiple different levels and dance floors that span through the precinct, offering different types of music and experiences. And of course, the pool.
