Sydney’s World Bar is shaking up their Saturday nights

Since 2012, Saturday nights at The World Bar have been all about Cakes. The weekly bash showcased the best in local upcoming electronic talent, as well as hosting the likes of What So Not, Anna Lunoe, Harvard Bass and Nina Las Vegas, to name a few.

Now, the popular party brand has announced it’s hanging up its hat. In a statement posted on Facebook, Cakes broke the news that it’s taking an indefinite hiatus, with their final party to be held this Saturday March 25.

“For 5 incredible years, we thank you for sharing our vision towards the best House music AUS has on offer,” they wrote. “100% no cheese, it’s been nonstop feels, we’ve been constantly overwhelmed with the support we’ve received every step of the way. A big thank you is in order to everyone who participated, you have given so many artists, promoters, DJs and patrons a chance to learn, grow, evolve and pursue their passion for music.”

Stepping into its shoes? A new club night called ‘And Then…’ courtesy of the party-starters at Maker, the agency home to everyone from What So Not to Wave Racer and Motez.

Organisers have promised amazing weekly line-ups that pay homage to the club’s legacy: “Embracing the rich history of Kings Cross and everyone’s favourite The World Bar, we’ll be bringing many a memorable moment to all willing party people,” they wrote on Facebook.

Make sure you get down to The World Bar this Saturday to give Cakes the farewell it deserves, and keep up with And Then on Facebook.
