Step back in time
So whose heard of Randi Wixs, or even better whose actually been to Randi Wixs and if so was your experience good, bad, ugly or scary? Randi Wixs has been around since like forever it seems and I've only been once before many years ago. At that time I went with about 10 other friends, which was more like a dare for us to go in, but remember they played great 80's music and we all danced the night away and had a fun time. Although I felt like we'd just entered a swingers club filled with lots of mutton dressed up as lamb waiting for witching hour. So it was a little scary and safety in numbers felt like the key to survival. I've even heard rumors it used to be a brothel, or perhaps it actually was? Who knows, who cares. It certainly has it's local fans behind those mysterious closed doors and windows and I've seen long lines waiting outside to get in after Randwick race day.
It seems to be one of those places where a secret handshake would come in handy but after a little wait outside I revisit again after The Alliance Française de Sydney Bastille Day Party 2009 for a quick visit. Bar was too crowded to get a drink so only stayed 5 mins but the crowd seem to be a bit younger mixed in with a few golden oldies as sing-a-long favourites were being played. I guess it's one of those down-to-earth, very tacky, vibrant, tiki bar style bars where brave people fear to tread perhaps once in their lifetime. To give you an idea of what it might be like check out the only 2 comments back in 2006 on Eatability. Enter at own risk!
What's the scariest bar you've been to?
People smoking and waiting outside
Crowded bar where mirror balls are still cool
