Another Iconic Sydney Venue Is Extending Trading Hours!

Renowned live music hot-spot Oxford Art Factory have announced they will be extending their trading and lockout hours starting this weekend.

The iconic venue took to Facebook today revealing the good news that they will be joining the likes of The World Bar in the few select spots that have pushed all working hours by 30-minutes.

What does this mean exactly? Last year, the Callinan Review suggested venues push everything up 30-minutes in a bid to help our nightlife while still maintaining the suffocating lockout laws. Even though 30-minutes isn’t a lot, it is still a good step in the right direction.

Speaking on this immediate change to the venue’s times, OAF CEO/Licensee/boss-man Mark Gerber writes:


“I strongly urge all licensed premises in the CBD, both large or small, to stand with us and apply for this much needed exemption from the lockout laws. If you are a small bar and are now able to extend your trading hours then look at doing this asap. If you are a licensed venue that can or does already support live entertainment then you should also apply.
The future of Sydney’s nightlife and its cultural vibrancy depends on a united front and a show of strength from all affected venues and the people who use them. Change can only come if we all work and stand together to change the tide on the damage that these draconian laws have caused to this great city of ours over the last three years. Join us and let’s all show them how great and vibrant our city really is!”

So for those who are as stoked as us for this mini victory for Sydney nightlife, get out and party this weekend!
