Friday @ The Cross (The Bourbon) 22nd May 2009

On May 22, 2009, in House, The Cross, by James Tran

an SMS – “Where are you? Come to kings cross, I need someone to dance with”
Me: “No. “
“I’m at a place called ‘The Cross’. Please come, its boring” – Now why on earth would I go to a place where its boring?

She really wanted me to join her, and I really didn’t want to go. I relent after some pleading, and grab a taxi. Last time I was here at ‘The Cross’, Miles Dyson came down to play, but people only started to turned up for his 2am set then left after.

About The Cross: (assessment time 1:30am)
Address: 24 Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross (Map), above the Bourbon
Website: http://www.thebourbon.com.au/
Entry Fee / Cover Charge: $15 tonight.

Dress Code: Casual allowed. Hats allowed.
Crowd
: Mostly caucasians.
Atmosphere: Dead in the side room, main room was barely surviving, but the people were still partying.
Inside: A Main room and a side room + balcony. Main room: The DJ booth is at the front, while cushion chairs line the walls surround the small dance floor. Looking up there are shoes hanging off the ceiling as well as those tube things one crawls through as a little child. I can’t explain it. It was a nice little addition.
Side room: DJ booth, bar, and lounge at back. The lounge is just a queen sized bed! Awesome. Though, not enough lounge seats to go around. Then again, there weren’t many people tonight.  Terrace was, again, closed when I got in. So there was no outdoor area to smoke. You would have to head downstairs for that.
