The Grand Electric shimmied her way onto the Sydney theatre scene in January 2023, grabbing headlines with three back-to-back sell-out seasons of Blanc de Blanc Encore. Ideally situated on the edge of Surry Hills and Redfern and masterfully styled with original Parisian murals by Max Elbourne, our unique and versatile venue is suitable for a whole host of events.
“The theatre space itself feels like it’s ripped straight out of Paris’ Moulin Rouge district. There’s dazzling lights of every colour, a bar in the back with a substantial stock of champagne, and hard wooden floors that reverberate a playlist featuring everything from jazz to rap.” Scenstr
The elegant indoor bar offers a great selection of wine, beer, champagne and signature cocktails while the art-filled courtyard bar gives guests a space to mingle.
The Grand Electric Bar offers a range of casual bar snacks (potato chips, pretzels etc). For events requiring more a substantial food offering, canapé catering can be arranged.
“I thought I had been transported to a hip New York club or had lost myself in some underground Paris parlour.” Stage Whispers

The building which houses The Grand Electric was originally built to house the NSW branch of the Australian Railway Union in the 1930s. This history is present in the star-shaped insignia of the ARU, still visible on the front of the building. There is evidence that the space was used for occasional theatre and burlesque performances as early as the 1940s. However the space has been used exclusively for theatre since the Performance Space for contemporary performance was established in the 1980s. Today, the spirit of the railway workers who originally used the space as a union hall are carried through in the turn-of-the-century railway themed décor.
We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation who are the traditional custodians of the land on which The Grand Electric Sydney is built. We also pay our respect to the Elders past, present and emerging, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
