If you want to experience 18th century racism , then the Scubar is just the place you want to go to. I would imagine that We are decently and widely travelled having being across Europe and the Americas , but Australian hospitality really startles you. The rules of entry get framed based on the color of your skin. Sometimes it's... More

These are the 4 words that would describe Scubar. Every backpacker knows this place. Its one of the first bars that the booze bus travels to , its a small place , its close to the YHA and other hostels close by and its always full of drunk happy dancing backpackers. The spirits and mixer drinks are just as expensive... More

Right next door to Central YHA, this place is pumping on a monday night, has some unusual events like snail racing etc. Backpacker central right here, a must visit.

Scubar in Sydney is a good time, (The bar & bartenders are great). However, if your a little crazy like myself expect to get kicked out. BTW the bouncers are horrible! (But I'm sure there is some that are nice.) I say that because I'm traveling and they wouldn't let me grab my friends after I went outside who have... More

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
