We went as a group to celebrate an important announcement in one of our parties life. The staff, including the manager, could not have been less helpful. This venue is in a high traffic location so no doubt will do well despite the poor service....More

What a fabulous facade! This is a good old-fashioned pub and very welcoming as an escape from the sun on George Street. It is only a little way south of the Town Hall.

Doorman was a real jerk. So much in fact that we just left. He kept calling us back but he was such a rude dude and there are plenty of better places to go in that area. Steer clear if you’re used to how pleasant...More

Sit by the window if you want to people watch in George Street or Liverpool Street although George Street is a mess at the moment with all the work going on. Alternatively watch the sports on multiple screens. This trip only had a beer but...More

If you're in the game of drinking beers and watching strangers go about their daily business,without them knowing your watching, this is your place. Plus the nachos are pretty awesome.

This place is nice to hangout with buddies. Nothing special but the location is quite central. This is the place where to watch sports, etc.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
