It’s so sad. A real fall from grace. I probably haven’t visited this establishment in over 5 years. I tried to enter at around 9.30 pm after yes perhaps one too many as an Asian person which is 2. I was turned away by surly bouncers when I communicated that my intention was only to perhaps dance for an hour with my friends and be out of there by 12. This is the reason Sydney’s night life is appalling. And management do treat your staff to have some discretion and sensibility. A really horrid experience and I hope this club just dies now for something else to awaken in its ashes.

First time at Palms - what a vibe!!! Couldn't have had a better time if I tried. Note - they won't let you in without enclosed shoes on, however the Tobacconist next door sells Kmart flats for $18 if you're stuck ;)Unfortunately, I can't give 5 stars as both of the female toilets were blocked all night which was a real pain!

Great music and atmosphere. nothing pretentious about it. if you are a poser or a social media queen, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a fun night, this IS the place

Palms is a great place to go for a bit of escapism - it's an Oxford Street institution.

Discrimination against girls! They have an absurd rule that girls in open toed shoes can’t enter. Never heard of anything like it anywhere else.

What a gay club should be - old classics from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s. Super fun crowd and very friendly.

I love Palms and have been going for years. You are always guaranteed a great night. The music is consistent which is one of the main reasons I keep returning. The excellent mix of 70s, 80s and 90s retro is a recipe for success. It is a LBGTQIA+ club and most patrons are there to dance and have a fun night. Ladies be warned, Palms takes their "No open toed shoes" policy very seriously, so wear flats or boots.Reasons I can't give a 5 star rating:* The bar is cash only. And although there is an ATM inside it is ridiculous you can't buy drinks with cards. Come on, it's 2018!* The sound system needs replacing. Or at least the treble turned down. Try not to dance near the speakers.* The bathrooms get quite disgusting. A combination of patrons and a lack of cleaning throughout the night.If you can get past the above, Palms is a great night out where you can dance until almost dawn. 😁❤️🎶🏳️‍🌈

The music has become to slow with the beat... I’m a HUGE fan of this place... but it’s all slowed down pop music... No one has their hands above their head like they used to. Yes, everyone is having fun.... but I can guarantee it will be empty but 1130

I love this place! It’s like my favourite retro bar in the world, yes it’s a little bit seedy but the atmosphere and the fun music make it all worthwhile. ❤️

As mentioned in their Google listig 👉🏻cash only! Coming from Europe, I've managed 5 days of Sydney as a tourist without touching a single dollar. So I wasn’t really willing to use their ATM here. I spent a little hour without a drink, enjoying the cheesy songs - ABBA Kylie Cher - and simply went back to the other side of Oxford for my next Lomg Island Ice Tea.If I were living here, and would have used cash, I would have come back.

I love the music in Palms... But besides that I find that I always love to see the Bulgarian security guard out front - he's so hot. Any chance I could get his phone number and ask him out? Is he into guys? 🙊

Club with retro music! Great place to relax and make new friends. There are cozy separate rooms. The action takes place, you can get a free room for 2 hours and a cocktail, you need to register on site 909gay,com take a screenshot and show the bartender. This should work
