Home Nightclub Has Swapped the Dance Floor for Beds and Is Reopening in Time for Mardi Gras

Darling Harbour nightclub Home the Venue is swapping the sticky dance floor for sticky sheets. It's making its triumphant post-COVID-19 comeback this March, but instead of letting revellers dance on vodka cranberry-covered floors, it's letting them party in queen-sized beds.

Launching on Friday, March 5 in time for this year's Mardi Gras celebrations, In Bed @ Home will see the harbourside venue transformed into a left-of-centre entertainment experience. The entire nightclub's dance floor has been filled with beds , in which you're offered a 'bedside' drinks service and you can watch two different shows. There's the Cirkus Bizurkus, with comedy, cabaret, burlesque and magic; and Pretty Masc, which is being pitched as a "gender-bending underground performance".

A nightclub with beds isn't an entirely new concept, however. In fact, visiting a fictional club with beds is the theme of an episode of Sex in the City and several very real clubs with queen-sized comfort opened in the US and the UK in the late 90s and early 2000s. But, it's still a novel concept here in Sydney — and reflective of the times, where limits and restrictions on dancing exist because of a certain pandemic.

That said, while nightclub experiences are still few and far between, tickets are getting snapped up quick. If you'd like to try out the new slumber party-cum-nightclub, you can already snap up tickets for $50 a pop.

In Bed @ Home launches at Home the Venue, 101/1–5 Wheat Road, Darling Harbour on Friday, March 5. Tickets are available to purchase via
