Nightlife is one of the most important parts of a city or town’s culture. Captivating entertainment, delicious food and drink, and a thriving arts scene is our vision for nightlife across the state. 

The Department is helping achieve this vision by emphasizing how arts, music and culture can contribute to local economies and make nightlife a safe and exciting space for communities.

In August 2016, the NSW Government released the Night Time Economy Round Table Action Plan that included 25 actions. As part these actions, the Department is investigating ways it can help entrepreneurs who want to establish or expand existing businesses to add to the vibrancy of the Night Time Economy.

Our Guide for Establishing and Managing Night Time Economy Uses helps entrepreneurs better navigate the planning system and other legislation.

Work in this space is ongoing. To stay in the loop, sign up below for updates on the Night Time Economy.
