Get your dancing shoes on Sydney, because one big ol' glittery party series is headed our way. The ivy's new LGBTQI+ club night, POOF DOOF, has partnered up with Absolut Vodka to turn it all the way up for Mardi Gras this year. Expect to get down to anthems by the likes of Gloria Gaynor, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys and Cher, 'cos this party is here, loud and (very) queer with pre-Mardi Gras raves, from February 15–29.

Having taken up residency at the Merivale precinct back in November 2019, the legendary Melbourne-bred party has since thrown some of the best blowouts citywide — and it's primed to get even better now that the CBD lockout laws have been lifted. The parties will take over the courtyard, terrace and den with an all-out rave each Saturday from 10.30pm. Dance well into the night with house and techno pumping on the main dance floor. Or, you can vogue in the side room — dubbed Snap Crackle Pop — which will be blasting queer pop anthems all night.

The Mardi Gras series will kick off with We Are Stardust on Saturday, February 15, with DJs Unknown Associates headlining, plus a lineup of more DJs and drag queens. On February 22, you can enter into the queer stratosphere at Planet POOF DOOF — an intergalactic Mardi Gras welcome party. Come Friday, February 28, there'll be the Big Gay Pool Party taking over the ivy's Pool Club. And, for its final stint on Saturday, February 29, POOF DOOF's Mardi Gras series will close out with a massive Mardi Gras Parade After Party.

Tickets for each night start from $25 and are on sale now. Pre-purchase online and you'll receive a 'rainbow hour' wristband upon arrival, which will get you a one-hour drinks package from 10.20–11.30pm — so get on it.
