Who doesn't like taking part in cool retro activities? Whether you are reliving your past, or discovering something that people used to think is fun really is just that. Retro venues around Sydney are there but often difficult to find. What is the best retro activity in Sydney you've heard of or taken part in?
So great. I'd have to say Coney Island at Luna Park. So retroish, yet so fun again. Not stating the obvious, yet I like the retro nightclub on Sussex Street. Being invited to an 80's work do where we had the entire Strike KSW to ourselves last year was also pretty cool. Had to write a few articles off it though...
I recently did a swing dancing class at the Basement and I loved it! The instructors are so knowledgable and such professional dancers, and it's a great way to meet some really nice people. It's on every Tuesday, and at the end of the lesson (if you're brave enough), you get to dance in front of the Big Band.
I hosted a kids birthday party at Hornsby Slot Cars, which I am reliably informed is one of 2 slot car venues left in Sydney. BUT, this place is not just for kids. This is the kind of place you could easily hire for a retro party or work drinks night. Even the look of the track is ultra cool. Donít you think?
I go to Hornsby Slot cars too, I have written an article about it on KidTown Sydney. My hubby has been going their since he was little and now he takes our son there.
I love the Skyline Drive- In at Blacktown, especially since they did it up. I wrote an article on it for WeekendNotes it is a cool place and feels like you are on the set of the TV show 'Happy Days' it's pretty cool.
The Lady Luck Festival held in Katoomba every year is a blast because it's about everything 1950's. Vintage cars gather in the main street, there are swing dancing displays, big bands, market stalls and everyone gets decked out in their finest 1950s gear. It's a lot of retro fun.
