What’s happening this February at The Bank Hotel

The Bank Hotel is back in signature party mode, hosting Waywards live music, Mardi Gras celebration, and plenty more this month.

As our monthly Bank Hotel updates roll on, things just get more and more exciting. This February, The Bank is tapping the gas with Mardi Gras celebrations, live music back at Waywards, and a wild King Street Carnival lineup.

So, let’s grab a cocktail from Avi’s Kantini and get into it, shall we?

Mardi Gras Fair Day

The Bank Hotel has been a proud host of Mardi Gras parties for years now, and 2022 is no exception. Of course, COVID-restrictive measures will be in place, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate diversity safely.

This year’s Fair Day will be kicking off 20th Feb, around 2 pm. Expect pure blonde tinnie raffles, DJ Sveta, friends, charismatic hosts, and to quote The Bank, “queens, queens, and more queens”. But wait, there’s more! $1 from every Pure Blonde schooner sold from 20th Feb to the 6th March will be donated to ACON, an NSW organisation dedicated to community health, inclusion and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders”.

There are plenty of more surprises in store for the big day, so be sure to head to The Bank’s website here to keep up to date with the latest announcements.

BRING IT BACK: The Vogue Night

Luckily, you don’t have to worry about what to do when February ends. On Saturday, March 5, DJs Sallvage, Kilimi, Mirasia and Halfqueen will be on the decks at The Bank Hotel ready to party all night long.

The Vogue Night is an evening that has been curated to revitalise the ballroom in Sydney. After most balls were postponed, Melbourne DJ Mirasia and New Zealand DJ Halfqueen have pioneered this night as a homage to the queens who came before them and fought for LGBTQI+ rights.

The event offers free entry to transwomen and tickets will only cost $20 for you to celebrate from 9pm to 3am.
