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

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!
