As a frequent visitor to Darling Street, The Workers has permanently lost my business (and anyone else I speak to) thanks to rudeness of the security guard. The bar itself is OK and has live music pretty frequently but there are plenty of better options...More

The Jazz band at this place has been playing each Sunday for nearly 40 years. Go on the first Sunday for a truly great 14 piece swing band under the renowned Dan Barnett. No cover charge and a big dance floor.

Ciders and Sliders combo at the Workers is delicious, excellent way to while away and afternoon or evening with friends, expeciallywhen they have live music or comedic acts

Have tried to contact this place by phone and email on six different occasions in the last six days, message left every time but no reply. Shocking customer service, ah well your loss of a table for six at an upcoming function.

Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and

from the hotels at night. As the place where the
