My last three girlfriends from a 6 week trip to Sydney I met in the Scubar! One Irish, one Canadian and one English. Great place if your a reasonably good looking guy after the beer Googles have been donned by the lovely foreign lasses have had a skin full and looking to be full of more! By the way... someone...

Good vibe. I'd say ages 19 - 30 is who mostly goes there. Like I said not for locals but great for travelers. 10$ pitchers (7.50$) on Monday! An all you can eat pizza for 10$ or 5$ each pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Then the highlight. The Monday night hermit crab races. 4 races, a dollar a... More

We had fun here, but I'm sure there are much better places to spend a night in the city. Nothing special.

Small bar close to the train station. We had some coupons for $5 pizza. Cheap meal we thought. Cocktails are also cheap some nights. Pizza's were so so. Seemed a bit like those you buy in the supermarket. But for $5 who cares. Cocktails were good! Football game was on during the evening. We had a lot of fun. Didn't... More

Dropped by this place as it was pretty central and near my accommodation (YHA Railway Square). I was told that it was a sleazy bar but it was anything but! Pretty small and cosy with a fun vibe, popular among tourists. Drinks were a bit pricey (or maybe I'm too used to cheaper prices in Hobart), but the jam jars... More

awesome on a Monday night, full of both locals and travellers. Great energetic vibe. Cheap drinks compared to the rest of Sydney and awesome giveaways and promotions. I am from Sydney and it always makes me feel like I'm on holiday when I go there!

Crab racing, east coast travel prizes, $7.50 snake bite jugs, DJ till late, good looking backpackers, hot staff and good-looking backpackers, and it's only Monday night! What you look for when your backpacking, a very good time.

Small bar but a nice place to be, drinks are reasonably priced but slightly on the expensive side just like the whole of Australia! One good thing is they sell jam jars! It's like vodka in fruit juice, not the strongest or manliest drink you can get but very nice!
