The Mardi Gras parade is always a highlight of Sydney's cultural calendar. But to catch an IRL glimpse of the festivities, snagging a spot on the street can be a real challenge. Mardi Gras has a few official viewing sites that you can snag a ticket to. Or if you're looking to go all out for this year's parade, one local venue is making the most of its Oxford Street vantage point.

The Burdekin Hotel is throwing a parade viewing party up on its rooftop to make the most of its prized location right by the start of the parade. Tickets aren't cheap ($295 to be exact), but you'll get to bypass the crowds below and enjoy a two-hour drinks package of beer, wine and spirits to accompany the killer view.

Roaming canapes, DJs, drag performers and free entry to the venue's multi-level Dirty Disco party are all also included in your ticket. Taking over all four levels of the hotel after the parade, the party will feature a pop dance floor on the ground level, all things house and disco on level one, a thumping techno nightclub on level two, and DJs on request duty (heaven help them) on level three.
