Poetry @ Pavilion Hotel SydneyFriends convince me to come here, where it was claimed it was pretty awesome, so here we go!

Poetry @ Pavilion Hotel
Assessment Time: 09:00PM – 12:30AM
Opening Hours: 09:00PM – Late, but Pavilion Hotel itself is open throughout the day
Lockout: None
Website: http://www.pavilionhotel.com.au , http://www.hypnotizeent.com
Address: 580 George St, Sydney
Dress Code / Door Policy: Casual is allowed, and appears to be the norm.
Entry Fee / Cover Charge: $10 all night.
Guestlist: No guestlist applicable.
Occurence: Every Friday
Inside: The register is located on top of the entry stairs. Meaning that both the top level dance floor and level below, which is the sole gambling and driking area, is only accessible for the punter. Focusing on the top level, this is where the dance action is at. DJ at the corner, with a wooden dancefloor to hold about 100 or so people. Huge concrete slab in the middle of the area to separate the dancing from the lounge area, where there is basically no lighting at all. Bar on the right to serve the floor.
Cloak Room: None
Bar: Standard drinks are $3.50 before 11PM. Chicks get free drinks, of limited choice of course.
DJs: DJ’s Tikelz/Moto/Manny/Pacheco
Music: RnB, Old School, Hip Hop
Crowd: Indian, Asian, Aussie, Euro – a bit of everything. There seemed to be a lot more girls than guys tonight.
Entertainment: Just the DJ tonight.
Atmosphere: Pretty bland throughout the evening proceedings. At peak it was decent, but peak did not last long. People were only coming up to dance to the songs they liked.
Timeline:
The ratio is amazing
So there is a ratio of guys to girls. I looked around during peak time (around midnigt) and I started counting. There were 17 girls and 5 guys. This was ridiculous, but of course, the types of girls here are of questionable quality. One was really drunk and dancing with everyone – she looked like a stoned version of Katee Sackhoff.

Lots of dancing
Most of the time we just spent dancing on our own little circle – there wasn’t much else one could do – and I wasn’t drinking this weekend due to a food poisoning incident earlier that week. I was actually quite low on energy to think about it.

Arrivederci
The place bagan to die very quickly after around 12:30, so we left for Cargo. Not even worth mentioning. Finished the night at Side Bar.

Recommendation
It wasn’t as packed as it was before the cover charge came into effect. As I was going in, I saw many people find out about the cover charge and decide to leave for somewhere else, instead of marching on in. It was not worth it – you would have better times at Star Bar next door, which is free entry. In all, my friends tricked me into coming here and so I shake my fist at them.

    Friday nights is now free entry.

    It’s still the same event, Poetry, and the same promoters, so how on earth do they make money ?
