Thu 24 Sep 2009 In: International News View at Wayback View at NDHA

Well-known Sydney gay venues The Flinders Hotel and the upstairs club at The Midnight Shift will close next month. Revamp: Oxford St's Midnight Shift According to the Sydney Star Observer, The Flinders has been sold, but the Midnight Shift's upstairs club is getting a long-awaited renovation. "We're putting new bars in and ripping carpets up and it'll be a clean different look. Not so much a clubby look," explains Shift's owner Tim Berry. "I think in Sydney, and around the world, clubs aren't doing as well as they have done. I suppose it's got to do with the internet and different things that people do," he added.
