Horrible treatment by bouncers. I was allowed entry but helped my friend wait for her Uber as she was not, only to be abused by the pure evil bouncers when trying to return back. I can’t even explain how unnecessarily rude they were.

Disappointed. I was the designated driver - not intoxicated. On two occasions (not once), I was pulled aside by security due to my "intoxication". In both instances, they could not substantiate the signs of inebriation that were alleged. After a $30 cover and understanding that security are essential to safety, it would be reasonable that I would at least be queried prior to being dragged out front.

The security at the door was EXTREMELY RUDE. They did not let my friend in because she was “too intoxicated”, when she was VERY clearly not, having only had a single drink 4 hours earlier. When we asked why we she was rejected, we were told that we were “not owed an explanation” and that we had to leave. The guard was verbally aggressive and the interaction absolutely ruined our night. Unacceptable treatment.

Went in for a drink as we had a mini bar crawl around Oxford Street. The staff were friendly and attentive. The drag performance was a surprise and had a fun energy!

Linda (mumma) and the crew here have always and will always be the most incredible people. Welcoming, wonderful, amazing music, brilliant productions put together by the Queen's and performed like only Sydney Queen's could do. Always a pleasure to come back here. Been coming for almost 20 yrs and will return when in town until I'm old and grey 🩶

We all had a meal here and I would like to start with compliments to the kitchen. Quality meals at fab $$. We had a fun night before doing the rounds and returning here for more shenanigans with malebox and sexy bars dancers. 🍸 cheers for a great birthday night to all the staff...

Maybe I'm just used to the happy hour, pours, and prices on Palm Springs, but the value here is by far a D for disastrous. Paid $24 for two drinks during happy hour. Drinks were weak! Be prepared for an Australian shot measure pour. Not the American count to 3 pours.It's almost 5pm on a Saturday and the bar is empty. By now in PS, the place would be packed.Ambiance and location, B for beautiful. It's centrally located and has a few outside seats for people gazing. Inside is clean.Bartenders are professional but not friendly. Food looked great but didn't want to soak up the little booze we just had. Lol.

The best gay club in Sydney, with three levels, iconic drag shows and famous long islands. Security are always switched on, professional management team and the venue always feels safe. Stonewall does a lot of fundraising for the community as well.Just make sure you have photo ID for entry, and don’t be overly intoxicated.

The older blonde female bouncer was rude, claiming I was too intoxicated, despite being accepted everywhere else I went, before and after. Please reconsider whether this woman should've worked the door in the first place. Never before have I seen so many negative reviews based on the actions of one person, nor have I received such terrible treatment anywhere in Australia.

2 weeks ago my friend got kicked out for apparently being intoxicated and Marshall was very rude, manager done nothingAnd now again on saturday, i get kicked out for no reason from the marshall, and pushed me right near the steps on 3rd level next to the manager and manager done NOTHING. Very afraid to come here again, not a safe venue at all, was crying all night

One of my favorite go to places on Oxford St! The bar tenders are so sweet and always on top of your drinks, are courteous and just nice. The drag shows are always fun to watch and the music and atmosphere is energetic. A+

Fun gay bar that's inclusive and friendly with a mixed crowd, decent prices for drinks (happy hour from 6pm to 8pm) and drag queen shows. Open till late.

I just went to the Stonewall Just after finishing a long day of work at 01:20 AM. I asked at the door if it was still open (since I didn't know the opening hours). the guy at the door was extremely rude to me. he mocked me to my face for asking such a simple question. He spoke to another woman who was also at the door mocking me for my question. she also answered me with an irony. I asked him if he was real and she said yes. Any way, I find it regrettable that a place with such a reputation treats its potential clients in this way. I work in hospitality and this behavior of your staff leaves a lot to be desired. they made me feel really bad, when all I wanted was to go in for a beer after a long and tiring day at work. Neither I nor any of my friends will ever go to a place that treats their customers like this again. after the response of the person at the door I just said ok and went to another bar. I'm sorry that he needs to treat people that way to maybe feel better about himself. it is a situation that I simply do not need and that I will not expose myself to. so I just said ok and left. his behavior is completely deplorable, unacceptable and very rude. never again Stonewall

Staff were friendly and the drinks were good, but the food was meh at best and it just wasn’t busy despite it being trivia night (mondays). Was my first gay bar visit in Sydney while travelling and I wasn’t too impressed. Not sure how weekend nights would fair but the weekday it didn’t have much going on.

I went to to the first time is past friday night and I LOVE THIS CLUB! IVE NEVER FELT SUCH A SAFE SPACE! Amazing performances, friendly staff and customers! Sexy dancing floors and awesome dancing cage on the second floor!. Welcoming of all. I had on instance with a straight male attempting to pick up female presenting people in the club but he was soon removed. I was welcomed on stage and made to feel so welcome. Friendly security happy to have a chat and laugh 🙂 definitely visiting again and frequently

Been going to stonewall for more then 7 years. Always been welcomed with love!Absolutely adore the place! But for some reason when I tried to bring in my mother and auntie who are 50+ they wouldn’t let them in the club. Felt like complete discrimination against these older women. Really disappointed with the way my family were treated tonight.

Lived in Surry Hills for a long time. A big standing bar and mellow men & women on the third floor on busy nights. The second floor is to be seen. Security might be abrupt if one's persevering to enter.

The woman in the gaming room is an absolute rude cow. Sat at a chair in the gaming room about to put money in a machine and came in and said immediately to leave if not playing a machine with such unwelcoming tone and a look on her face. This is a Tuesday night with hardly any people even at the venue. No need for your rotten attitude and tone- You cost the venue money and business tonight. Hope your boss considers that. Not the first time either this person has upset people for absolutely no reason. Find another job if you don’t know how to interact with people normally.

Been performing at this wonderful club now 21 years, very inclusive, very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended if u want to have a fun, great night with fabulous drag shows.

The bouncers have been unreasonable to me and rude. I’m just a trans and I have been hanging out on Oxford street over time. Won’t go back there ever. Good luck with your attitude. And yes I am allowed to take photos in public area. Your boss should know what happened. Don’t touch me or my phone or I would ring the police next time..

Was having a great night here, asked a security staff if a jacket had been handed in. He then told me I had to leave because I was intoxicated, I had a couple drinks like everyone there but wasn't intoxicated, completely coherent. I hadn't done anything wrong and was very shocked at how he treated me, I was with a group of friends for an engagement and wasn't even allowed to let my friends know I had to leave, ruined my night and was quite an upsetting experience, only time Iv ever been unjustly removed from a premises for what's seems like no good reason at all. Do not recommend. Other clubs were much more hospitable and treated patrons with decency.

Had a lovely beer in this iconic pub on Oxford St in Sydney. Love the mood of the place and the people and service were great.

Be aware security are a bit crazy and will lead you to believe you are a problem. I try and enter with my friends reasonably early in the night, the security looked at me for a little bit asked me to walk in a straight line (I was extremely sober in doing so) and was denied entry and was told “not tonight mate”. Went two minutes down the road and entered Universal upstairs with no problem. I wish I was just sore that I was denied entry into a bar but this seems an ongoing issue from reading these reviews where security at this place randomly discriminate, heavy handed and place the justification on less than reasonable terms.

It has been a decade since I frequented this friendly venue. The show is not only free it is top notch drag at its best. If you are thinking about it, I have 1 thing to say , Do it. Yeeees.

Last night I was forcibly dragged out of the toilet mid pee by a male security guard. No one gave us a reason as to why we were being kicked out.They’ve already deleted my last review and blocked me on social media so I guess they know they’ve done something wrong but won’t do anything about it.

The security are crazy. Don’t go stonewall. Security are disgusting. Pushed their way into the female bathrooms and were physically abusive. Actually disgusting. Don’t go here. Not a “safe space”

Horrible experience unfortunately. I’ve been to the place before and was always fun. This time I came after work at midnight to meet my friends already inside. The security people didn’t let me in with no explanations. They just said no. I wasn’t drunk or dressed bad. I just finished my shift in another bar. I tried to ask for a reason and they didn’t answer. They made me feel uncomfortable being rude and arrogant. If this is the way you treat people I’ll make sure to tell my friends to not come back anymore. You should feel ashamed for how you treated me.

WOW 😮 what a none inclusive venue run by a senior citizen lesbian with a terrible attitude! This place has really taken a dive in n recent years! Same old same old boring, cringe-worthy management. You need fresh people to take the reins here, Linda should retire as she has no clue how the crowd has changed. it's management like this that does not work in 2021! The food is very low quality and the bar and venue look tired, dirty and worn out! Give this place a miss if you are LGBTIQ! Go to the Colombian down the road where service is amazing and food is better 👍

The security guy was so rude (Sunday 1am). We were a group of 15 people and he denied everyone entry saying we all were borderline drunk. He just spoke to one guy who didn't speak very good English and assumed everyone was drunk. We had 3 people don't even drink alcohol. I hate racial decriminalisation and I get furious when they don't even admit that he made a wrong judgement call. He kept saying I was drunk and I don't even drink! Nonsense.

A year year ago we came for a few drinks then my partner went for a smoke as per usual outside however they decided to put a cash register out front, didn't tell him when he went for a smoke, and tried to charge him to re-enter despite the manager knew we were there. Did I mention he was Asian. I wonder... It also happened to another friend who was Asian a few days earlier.
