NIGHT OUT: The Soda Factory
THE SODA FACTORY is Surry Hills’ newest late late night party joint, located at 16 Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills, NSW. With its stripped back industrial -inspired interior, a mixologist imported from London and open six nights a week, THE SODA FACTORY is set to become an unmissable sweet spot for Sydney’s looking for new addition to for a night out.
A phoney fifties’ coke machine makes a secret entrance to a space you’d never expect: welcome to The Soda Factory, Surry Hills’ newest late-night sweet spot. They’ve stripped out the Mars Lounge, Tone and all that fleshy interior to present the stunning industrial bones of this beautiful old building, and there’s a top-notch cocktail menu to match.
And with it’s late-trading license, The Soda Factory will have the tunes sorted. Expect a regular offering of live acts, international DJ’s & local vibe controllers to engineer your nights from chill in the early evening to some sweet, sweet d-floor action later on.
Bar owner and partners Graham Cordery and Michael Chase bring a wealth of experience, to the venture with Cordery being the Director of Experience Entertainment and Chase having a background MGM Distribution, the two have a lot to offer given their connections both to electronic and live music performance.
“The live music component will also try to support some of the best up-and-coming and indie talents out there,” Chase explains. “Earlier in the night or mid-week nights we’d love to get some great acoustic sets on.”
“Just like Surry Hills, there’s going to be a little bit of something for everyone when we open our doors,” expressed Cordery.
But don’t worry if you left your dancing shoes at home: you’ll still find a spot at the bar to suit, with a drinks menu designed by mixologist Mitchell Warters, straight from London. He’s spent the last two years perfecting the art of the delicious drop at Richard Branson’s exclusive members-only Roof Gardens cocktail bar on High Street, LDN. But rather than a traditional serving of spirits and classic cocktails, Warters will be creating some unique and exciting signature drinks for The Soda Factory to complement the old school atmosphere.
So make your way down to The Soda Factory on Saturday 23rd February where you will see New York’s DJ SPINNA manning the decks for the official public launch party.
