White Night's hustle and bustle is back again — and, because one evening isn't enough, it's tripling its duration. Called White Night Reimagined, the revamped festival will take over the city with installations, music, performances and other one-off cultural happenings, including a subterranean bar underneath Federation Square.

Fancy joining in the fun, but avoiding the huge crowds? From Thursday, August 22 to Saturday, August 24, you can climb down to Fed Square's depths, all as part of its second Sensory Underground pop-up. The first one, an immersive restaurant scheduled for the end of July, has proven such a hit that it'll return as a bar. Think futuristic lights, sensory installations and plenty of drinks, all beneath street level.

With its feast of sights, sounds, scents, textures and tastes, the White Night Reimagined Asahi After Dark Bar also forms part of Fed Square's Anything But Square Festival, so you won't be lacking in things to do over the jam-packed three days.

To find the space, you'll need to enter through Platform 13 at Flinders Street Station. Then, once inside, you'll sip brews surrounded by light installations by artist Kit Webster, listen to music by English electro musician Rival Consoles, watch performances by Paul Findlay and immersive yourself in a virtual reality wellness spa by local tech studio Phoria.

Tickets cost $20 per person for a two-hour visit, with the White Night Reimagined Asahi After Dark Bar running three sessions each evening: from 7–9pm, 9–11pm, and 11–late.
