As of this weekend, Freda's will stay open till late. After years of applying to the council and State Government, the much-loved Chippo bar now has permission to serve until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights, and until midnight on Sundays. These hours represent a two-hour extension.

"Being closely involved in the music community for almost a decade, I have seen the drastic decline in Sydney's nightlife — from the envy of the world, to a relative backwater," said David Abram, proprietor at Freda's. "We have lost a large part of our soul in this process, but this news gives hope to all those who want a better solution for our nightlife and who believe a night out should only be about relaxing, listening to music, dancing and engaging with each other in a safe and respectful way."

For you, that means more hours to see more music, more art and more cultural happenings. The timing is good, as Freda's recently added an art space to its basement. Called Down Under, it hosts exhibitions, performance art and fashion shows.
