Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq

For a cheap date night in the city, Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq is the place to head. The circus-themed bar is a wonderland of big kid fun, boasting bowling alleys, dodgem cars and a VR experience room. Better yet? Arcade games start at just $2 a go, meaning an evening spent here doesn't have to break the bank. 

Holey Moley

Holey Moley is the quirky mini-golf course with some serious attitude, think colourful balls, novelty outfits and sets themed on everything from The Simpsons to Vincent Van Gogh. The 9-hole course here can be played for less than $20 a person, making a great idea for a cheap day out in Sydney.
