A bit of an institution in Sydney. Popped in for a drink after dinner on a Sunday night. Was a quiet night although there was a 'senior' drag show on, which was quite entertaining.

Was excited to visit this place but the younger bar staff with an attitude and uninviting personality puts us off plus unhappy doorman makes us not coming back

Didn’t expect much but it turned out to be our best meal in the two weeks we visited Sydney. The rump steak and potatoes was excellent and very inexpensive. I would have eaten hear more often but it was our last night in Sydney. Definitely...More

Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
