Sydneyʼs Nightculture is not dead, not yet. But thatʼs not to say it isnʼt an ongoing struggle, what with the crazy Lockout Laws, the over zealous policing and endlessly overlapping regulatory bodies, otherwise known ‘s the NSW “NannyState”.

FIBʼs new series ‘PLACES WITH A PULSE, celebrates the bold visionaries who have refused to fall victim to the Governmentʼs “Nanny State” harassment, and who continue to shine brightly.

Hospitality icon Sam Christie is the driving force behind beloved restaurants Longrain Sydney, and Melbourne, The Apollo and newly opened Cho Cho San. Here, he talks about Sydney’s Nightlife post lockout laws.
