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.

I like neat well kept old buildings and am a sucker for these. Especially when over the door are three very cool (wise?) monkeys AND it is a bar with a good happy hour deal in play. So in we went. The house Chardonnay wine...More

This is a fabulous pub. It became our "local" for the seven days we stayed nearby. A real good old pub, with windows open to the street. Cold drinks and Jalapeño Poppers. A great end to any day sightseeing.

I doubt the 3 Wise Monkeys has changed for years. Quite run down and limited food menu, but that is part of its charm. Sitting by the window drinking a few of the wide range of tap beers and watching people is good fun and...More

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
