For young Sydneysiders, a night spent at Cargo has almost become a rite of passage. The bar even claims "everyone has a Cargo story". The Darling Harbour spot is a mainstay in the CBD's nightlife and, now, it's hitting a milestone of its own: turning the big 1-8.
That's right, the restaurant/bar/beer garden/waterside hub has been churning out bangers and party vibes since 2000 — and it's holding a whammy of a celebration.
Friday, September 14 will herald its big birthday bash. Tickets are free, and for that hot price you'll get a drink on arrival and — if you're down early — snacks from 6–7pm to line your stomachs before the shenanigans get going properly.
The venue will be revisiting the mid-2000s by welcoming back an epic lineup of DJs from years gone by. Dancefloor favourites SOSUEME DJs, Kid Kenobi, Groove Terminator and Ember will take to the decks, as well as Jace Disgrace, Adam Bozzetto, Pat Ward, Yanya and Jaime Doom (Bang Gang). It's the perfect excuse to relive those glory days of your partying youth.
