The Basement

Home > Sydney > Music Venues
Published August 19th 2010
If it were possible to pick up a little slice of New Orleans from the 1960s and transplant it in Sydney's CBD, it would look something like the Basement. The Basement started out as a jazz club, but over the last thirty-odd years the repertoire - and square footage - of the Basement has expanded, accommodating 120 seat and 150 standing visitors.

Apart from its prime location, up the road from Circular Quay, the club has the added benefit of offering people the option to sit down with a beer, chill out, and listen to whatever outlandish musical act is playing that night. Of course, when some of the more notable music greats come to visit, it is necessary to buy a ticket. While the food is standard pub-fare, with the occasional dalliance with an exotic sauce, the ambiance is unbeatable.
