A group of Sydney’s best small bars clustered around York, Clarence and Kent streets, aptly known as YCK Laneways, will continue to support Sydney’s entertainment scene through the fittingly titled Night Over Light event series, as part of this year’s brand-new Sydney Solstice celebration.
Off the back of the highly successful YCK Laneways Block Party, the newly launched YCK precinct today announced an exciting new 13-day program of events. Showcasing the very best of Sydney’s entertainment scene when it shines brightest in the dark of night, the new winter event series will see Sydney come to life after dark through food, music, entertainment, arts and nightlife culture.
YCK Laneways Night Over Light will feature a diverse program of over 76 events across 15 bars. Participating venues include Since I Left You, Papa Gede’s, The Lobo, Spawn Point, The Barber Shop, The Duke of Clarence, Stitch Bar, Prince of York, Grandma’s Bar, Uncle Mings, Sammy Jnr, The Swinging Cat, PS40, Esteban and Burrow Bar.
Sydneysiders will not only will be able to indulge in some of the city’s best cocktails, but enjoy a feast for the ears with Night Over Light showcasing an exciting array of live music acts. The line-up includes weekly jazz performances, Caribbean-themed music, late night DJs, uplifting funk and boogie, intimate acoustic sets and more.
Newer additions to the program include Latin Nights at Esteban, a live music series showcasing the rhythmic sounds of Latin America with music ranging from the Samba and the Tango; Funked Up Sundays at The Barbershop kicking off with The Goods DJ set playing a live mix of neo-soul, funk and hip hop; and Analogue Discogue Sunday Lunch in the SILY courtyard, paired with a Japanese Izakaya-inspired menu.
Night Over Light will include a range of free and ticketed events, with numbers for select events limited so bookings are strongly recommended.
