Sydney rooftop bar's outrageous new dress code

A Sydney rooftop bar has been applauded after releasing a set of hilarious dress code rules.

Slims Rooftop, which opened in July last year and overlooks Hyde Park in Sydney, uploaded a picture of the tongue-in-cheek list to their Instagram account, where people commended them on the cheeky demands.

People ‘sporting team jerseys and matching shorts, big granny undies, creeping or attitude’, wouldn’t be permitted on the rooftop.


“Cheap, ill-fitting suits and power ties, d*******s, cargo shorts, combovers and sh** chat,” are also on the no-go list.

However, the no ‘thongs after sunset’ rule was the one that got the most attention online, with people using it to poke fun at Sydney’s lockout laws.

The legislation, which was implemented in 2014, requires 1.30am lockouts and 3am last drinks in Sydney CDB.



“No tongs after dark @slims.rooftop? Didn’t realise bars in Sydney were open after dark! ;)” one person said.

“Forget the lockout laws, implement this nationwide,” another person said.

There was some confusion online about whether Slims was serious with the dress code, however they cleared that up pretty fast.

“Come & check us out. The owner is ugly (but in a cute kind of way) and we have all kinds of looking staff – if they can’t do a job they don’t get employed. This dress code is a bit of fun – take it that way,” they said.
