List of Best Nightclubs in Sydney

One of the greatest things to do on a night out in Sydney is to go clubbing. But with so many clubs around it can be hard to know which one to go to.

Here are some of the best nightclubs that offer excellent nightlife entertainment.                       

Goodgod Small Club

Goodgod Small Club, located in Kings Cross, is a nice alternative if you don’t feel like getting into huge club complexes. The music doesn’t cater to just one genre but covers all age groups and other aspects such as the dress code are very relaxed: jeans and sneakers are fine here.

The capacity of this club is around 400 people but that might sound like a lot for some of you; it’s not though. So basically if you want an intimate experience with good quality electronic dance music (house/techno/trance) make sure you visit Goodgod!

Ivy Nightclub

Ivy Nightclub is perfect if you like to dance your ass off. This club is usually packed out there’s no way of moving around anymore once full capacity has been reached (600 people) – and the energy level stays high throughout.

The atmosphere here is great but it can be intimidating for some; don’t worry though because the crowd tends to take care of each other and everybody will have a good time regardless, trust me!

The Ivy Club at The Star Casino is a popular choice for those who want an upmarket venue, as it’s on the casino premises. It has three rooms with different music styles including RnB, dance and house music.

With its high ceilings, polished floorboards and crystal chandeliers this club looks classy but still gets incredibly crowded-you’ll have lots of people bumping into you on the way to the bar! And watch out for getting stuck between the people looking for a place to sit down! A reasonably-priced club, drinks cost around $10 each.

Marquee Nightclub

Marquee Nightclub at Star Casino (formerly Jupiters) needs no introduction. On any given night you’ll find this complex filled with dressed up people having fun thanks to its three different parts: Marquee, Level 1 & Crush. The first one only opens on Fridays and Saturdays, which is a huge shame because the DJs playing here are the best.

The latter two venues are open every night of the week though so make sure you head down to them whenever you can!

Arq Sydney

The newest addition to this list is Arq, located in Darling Harbour/Ultimo. It’s very modern and uses its space wisely which makes it feel much larger than it is (you’ll hardly ever find any queues at this place). You’ll be able to enjoy quality house music all night long thanks to well-known DJs/artists such as Sasha, Steve Lawler, Riva Starr or Josh Wink – just to name a few.

And if you still want more then here’s some great news: Arq also has its record label which you can find here.

Goldfish

Goldfish, located in Pyrmont and right next to the Star Casino, is my favourite nightclub of all time. The outdoor smoking area contributes to this because it’s huge and often packed with people having a good time. Apart from that it also offers great music every night of the week and since its closing hours are at 5 am I’m sure that there’ll be plenty of time for more fun once inside.

Just make sure your wallet is well-filled before entering Goldfish though; drinks tend to be very expensive.

Avantika

Avantika is a restaurant by day and a lounge bar at night, but after 1 AM they turn into a nightclub that plays house music until 5 am Sunday. No one under 21 is allowed in the venue making it perfect for post-uni students looking for an age-appropriate Friday night out. The dance floor gets pretty crowded with lots of cheesy chat up lines flying around!

Men’s Gallery

Men’s Gallery is another nightclub on King Street where you can find cheap drinks and plenty of good-looking guys (or so I’ve been told). House music fills the air all night long while shirtless men pole dance. And if you get thirsty there are plenty of cocktail bars around to get your drink on.

Midnight Shift

Midnight Shift is a club that takes things to the next level with its warehouse-like interiors, pumping sound system and strobe lighting. Just make sure you come in dressed appropriately so you won’t be turned away at the door! Unless you’re invited in free by another club member, entry will set you back $15 for guys or $10 for girls.

So those were the best nightclubs in Sydney; hope you liked them. Have fun!

Exemptions From Inheritance Tax

Inheritance tax is a form of death duty that has been in place for centuries. Although rates have changed throughout history, the goal has remained the same: to protect society from financial ruin through a levy on deceased persons’ assets.

Inheritance tax warning: 'Reliefs, exemptions and allowances' may be  reduced by HMRC - cabanesetcompagnie

But under what conditions should a person be required to pay inheritance taxes? And which people are exempt from this tax? This article takes a look at two separate but related issues: exemptions from inheritance tax and who must pay it.

Before delving into these issues, however, it’s worth exploring why any country might need an inheritance tax in the first place.

Big Business Matters over Dying Persons

Even before life insurance evolved into its modern form, wealthy people had ways to ensure that their assets would be passed on to family members after death. Wealthy families could establish trusts, which are legal arrangements that allow for the management of property in a way that benefits one party (the beneficiary) until they reach an agreed-upon age.

Despite these tools, wealthy families were not immune to financial ruin; all it took was one court case, and suddenly the inheritance of their entire estate–millions or even billions of dollars–was left up to chance. By devising an inheritance tax, lawmakers created a safeguard against such unpredictable events.

Nowadays, the IRS charges 40% in taxes on anyone’s estate exceeding $5 million before any deductions are made.

You Are What You Own

When thinking about who is exempt from inheritance tax, the first thing that may come to mind are members of royal families or celebrities. While some celebrities do inherit fortunes– Michael Jackson’s children, for example–royalty is arguably the only group today who could be said to possess massive amounts of wealth for reasons beyond their control.

For everyone else in society, it ultimately comes down to what they own versus how much they owe. If your estate is worth more than $5 million before any deductions are made, you must pay taxes on whatever amount exceeds this threshold; however, $5 million is not automatically exempted from taxation just because it came from an inheritance.

Retirement coverage: 

Employers with pension plans usually allow workers to place a certain percentage of their income into a retirement fund. Once the worker retires, part of their pension benefits will be paid to them throughout their retirement years. The IRS considers this money as an asset and taxes it accordingly; although you pay no taxes on the first $1 million, any amount over that is taxed at 40%.

Other exemptions: 

Any other sort of savings or investment that has been managed in such a way that gains interest could count as an asset for inheritance tax purposes. If your total assets add up to more than $5 million before deductions are made, then you cannot avoid taxation by converting what would have been your estate into another form while you were alive.

Who Must Pay Inheritance Tax?

When it comes to determining who must pay inheritance tax, it seems like common sense to assume that only the wealthiest people in society would be subjected to this levy. While the wealthiest 1% of Americans do account for over half of all assets owned by American households today, everyone’s situation is different; this means that there is no blanket exemption from inheritance taxes.

For example: If you own a house worth $5 million and owe $4 million on your mortgage at the time of your death, then you owe nothing when it comes to inheritance tax since your estate will not exceed $5 million.

On the other hand, if you own a condo worth $1.2 million and have no debt or liabilities when you die, then you still may need to pay inheritance tax because your estate will total $1.2 million–$5 million minus the $400,000 exemption for real property.

Other Deductions

While most people would argue that an individual’s personal belongings should be exempt from inheritance tax because a person has a right to dispose of their own money as they see fit, this argument does not hold up in courts of law. For example: If you leave your home or car to a family member when you die, then this is not going to escape taxation by the IRS.

Even though these items are important parts of your personal life, they still count as assets and add up to totals that go over the exemption limit of $5 million before any are made.

How Much Does It Cost To Do A Grazing Table

As we all know, a grazing table is a perfect solution for the hot summer months when bees don’t want to work. They can go out and get water and/or nectar at any time of day or night without needing their keeper’s intervention.

What many beekeepers do not realize, however, is that maintaining a grazing table can be costly. It will cost you in electricity for your fountain pump (unless you use solar power), it will cost you in water bills if you do not have access to fresh clean well or spring water, and it will even cost you in wear and tear on your body as you haul heavy buckets back and forth from where they are filled with water to where they sit on top of your hive. Let’s take a look at some of these issues.

flat lay photography of variety of fruits

This article will concentrate on the actual costs for maintaining your grazing table, assuming that you already own hives, and are therefore paying for their upkeep (you can’t keep bees without hives).

Size

The first thing to consider is the size of your grazing tables. Your goal should be two standard deep brood boxes per hive, with 8-10 frames in each box given normal fall/winter conditions. This usually works out to about 45-50 pounds of bees per box maximum, depending upon how much room they have to expand into nectar-producing territory in the summer months.

To see what 50 pounds look like, check out this link. For the sake of simplicity though, let’s say you have two hives, and keep them at the minimum 45 pounds per box size. That means that you need about 90 pounds of bees per day just to maintain your hives (not including any brood-rearing…let’s leave that for now).

Hive Scale. 

Bee apiaries are measured by how much weight they can hold. 50 lbs = one hive body with 8 frames in it (the US standard). Multiply this times 4 to estimate how many boxes equals 100 lbs of bees.

A rule of thumb is that it costs $35/year to cover the cost of feed, varroa mite treatment, etc., per hive (this figure was established by Purdue University beekeepers who were conducting a study on the economics of beekeeping). Therefore, if you divide $35 by the number of pounds per hive, for two hives it comes to about $17.50/year/hive for expenses (this does not include the cost of the hive itself). Add $17.50 to $35 and your total yearly expense is $52.50/hive/year.

Water Costs. 

Now let’s add in the costs for water…

Depending on where you live, a visit from a truck with fresh non-fluoridated well or spring water could run you anywhere from 50 cents to five dollars per visit, totalling about six gallons per visit at most (going on what I’ve seen around here). Assuming that there are 365 days in a year, that works out to about $18/year/hive for water costs.

Electricity Costs

Now let’s add in the costs for electricity…

Even if your grazing table is on a timer that comes on only at night, this means that you have an electric pump running all day long just to keep some standing water available next to your hives. It has been my experience that some of these fountains are pretty thirsty, so figure 5-6 hours of continuous operation per day. Let’s say it takes 1 watt per hour (see here ), so our 90-pound hive would use 9 watts per hour every time the fountain runs.

A good deep cycle battery weighs about 20 pounds and can provide 400 ampere-hours of power at 12 volts. A 400 amp-hour battery will run a 5-watt load for 20 hours. So the 90-pound hive with our 9 watts per hour draw would need about 42 hours worth of juice from the battery. 42 x 24 = 1008 watt-hours per day, or 10 amps/day. So your battery tender will have to be able to provide 10 amps at 12 volts continuously to maintain this table (see here ).

A deep cycle marine battery weighs about 55 pounds and is designed to put out between 200-400 ampere-hours of power when new, depending on make and model. For our purposes let’s budget on the high end… which means that one battery will operate our fountain pump for 43 days out of the year, at a cost of about $3.20/year/hive for electricity (assuming that you are using this battery to run something else as well). I have three batteries hooked up, but only one is being used to power the fountain pump…

So now let’s total up our costs for electricity and water: $52.50 + 18 = 70.50 + 3.20 = 74.70/year per hive Now what about labour? This part will be different for everyone, depending upon how much time you want to spend on maintaining your hives, but figure on an average of four minutes per day spent twice a week turning each frame so that the comb has equal access to the syrup.

This means that you will spend 16 minutes a week working each hive for a total labour cost of about $1.43/year/hive. So now let’s add it all up: 74.70 + 16 = 90.70 + 1.43 = 92.13/year per hive

Weight

There is one other thing to take into consideration…what if the weight of your hive goes up? As time goes on, boxes get thicker and thicker with bee burr comb, so the number of pounds in your box should go up at least slightly from year to year or else you might have a queen problem or other issue which could wipe out your entire colony. Add an extra 50 pounds per box to account for this effect and you will need to add an extra $1.89/year/hive onto your total yearly costs.

92.13 + 1.89 = 94.02/year per hive   Calculating our initial investment… Assuming that you purchase a deep cycle marine battery for about $75 and a pump for around $60, with enough coroplast ($40) to make two grazing tables, then the total cost of starting up beekeeping comes out to around $225. If you divide this by the number of seasons it takes a hive to fill a standard eight frame nuc box (three), it comes out to around $78.75 /season or 95.28/year, making our break-even point at 23 hives!

That’s a lot of beekeeping, so why not pick up a couple more hives to help defray the cost?

This calculation also doesn’t take into account the average increase in whole hive weight per season… if you get six seasons out of each box (going on my own experience) then you would need to add an extra $1.46/year/hive beyond your break-even point for every year after Year One (i.e., 95.28 + (95.28 x 6) = 193.88). If your calculations show that it takes longer than three seasons to fill one standard eight frame nuc box, then adjust accordingly.
