I went there and I got really surprised with the very nice staff and reasonably priced beer (when compared to other places in Sydney). The concert area has a good size and nice acoustics. Really nice!

The Bald Faced Stag is one of my favourite live venues in Sydney. Lots of beers and great sound it's a good way to support live music!
