Are you looking for a venue for a birthday celebration or just a fun night out? Then look no further. Dome Bar and Lounge, though currently closed for renovations, will be reopening very soon. Bookmark their website for further updates.

Dome Bar and Lounge, in the heart of Surry Hills, is located off Cleveland Street at 589 Crown Street, Sydney above the Crown Hotel. This bar and lounge offers a unique venue for your next private function or party gathering. Whether it be a chilled-out low key affair or a more upbeat party to rev it up with some great entertainment, from DJ cool disco beats, to cool live jazz nights and the fabulous roaming Burlesque Show.

This article will give you some idea of the fun you can have at a Burlesque venue. Before the recent renovations at Dome, a friend of mine wanted to have her birthday celebration somewhere different, so she chose Dome Bar and Lounge Friday Burlesque Night. We all love dressing up so we decided to go in Burlesque theme.

The bar looked sensational; all lit up and went well with the red leather lounges and intimate lighting. The french vintage themed decor with large Baroque wallpaper murals and 18th century styled chandeliers added to the exotic and decadent atmosphere.

We all paid $25 on entry which included a drink from the bar. With a large group of friends to accommodate we were able to book a lounge area, which was just perfect as it was located right near the dance floor and stage. It was quite exciting as we all made a great effort to look the part in fact most of the patrons on the night thought we were part of the show. The music was sensational and all were getting fired up enjoying their fancy dress and surroundings.

Especially the birthday girl Liana, who looked stunning in her costume.

It was really just a perfect venue to celebrate the night. Liana had organised our group to enjoy a tasty canape selection. This was just as well as the party drinks were flowing and the exhibitionists within were showing!

Soon enough the real show began with a series of fabulous gorgeous Burlesque performers. The hostess of the group looked glamourous in different costumes and sang up a storm

Then everyone had to get up and dance as crazy as they could for the best dancer competition. Somehow fuelled by party drinks, I was selected to claim the prize of dancer of the night.
