Sydney by night: EliteSingles’ favourite nocturnal goings-on
Exploring Sydney by night
At EliteSingles we spend a lot of time thinking about how to make our members comfortable whilst getting to grips with online dating. Of course, a significant trench of this involves compiling practical advice for things like profiles and messaging. However, we’re also on top of our game when it comes to offering our users local dating tips, like those contained in this article.
We know that our Sydney singles spend a lot of time juggling their work-life balance. Rather than stressing about what to do and where to go, why not check out some of our favourite things to do in Sydney, after dark. So, take a peek at the map below to orientate yourself with our tips and get exploring tonight!
One of Sydney’s biggest pulls is without doubt its harbour. Both iconic and breathtaking, it’s a feature that draws people to the city from far and wide. We’re of the opinion that the best way to appreciate the city is from the water, with the sun setting behind you. And there are a number of evening cruises on offer to do just that; from the diminutive water taxi to mighty tall ships! If you’ve not quite earned your sea legs yet, it’s probably better to stay on dry land. That’s not to say you have to miss out on the waterside action. Watching the sunset at one of Sydney’s many beaches is a great way to ramp up the romance, especially with a bottle of bubbly at hand!
Though it may sound a little cheesy, few things are more romantic than gazing up into the inky-blackness of the night sky and pondering the enormity of the universe beside your beau. If this sounds like fun on an extraterrestrial scale, take your cosmic girl/spaceman on a trip to the Sydney Observatory! Perched atop the aptly named Observatory Hill, the Museum of Applied Arts and Science-operated lookout affords stunning panoramas over Sydney Harbour. After marvelling at the telescopic sights, blast off into the planetarium for some astral action. Tours run on a nightly basis and get underway at 8.15pm sharp.
Late night snacking
Fact; Sydney is an oasis for food lovers. If you’ve got an appetite as voracious as ours, you might want to check out our top picks when it comes to the most romantic restaurants Sydney has to offer. Here, however, we want to talk about some of the gastronomic goings-on that are exclusive to Sydneysiders. Things like the Chinatown Night Market. Open every Friday from 4-11pm, it’s the ideal place to wander from stall to stall, taking your taste buds on an Asian expedition. Weekend grazers are best off getting down to Paddy’s Markets in Flemington. Set in the humble surroundings of an undercover car park, it’s the place to tuck into a bit of street food courtesy of Sydney’s favourite food trucks.
Grab the mic
Karaoke might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Indeed, for many the idea of crooning along to a questionable cover of some 80s power ballad is their idea of purgatory. However, if you can’t get enough of the limelight and love bellowing out Careless Whisper to a room full of half-cut punters, Sydney is a great city! Venture over to Surry Hills’ Goro's if you’re after a truly authentic Japanese experience. Delicious yakitori, crisp import beers and private booths make this a great double date destination. Chinatown’s sci-fi style Dynasty Karaoke is another Sydney institution worth visiting when it’s time to wax lyrical!
