Dave's Pub Walks

Greg was HILARIOUS and did an amazing job of telling us about each bar/hotel without making it boring.
Got to hear the story behind the tiles on the outside of bars and the reason they're called hotels.

Sydney Pub Tours
#2 of 232 Nightlife in Sydney
His knowledge and enthusiasm for the history of the bars and the beers is second to none, its a great shame the tour only lasts a few hours as i'm sure there heaps more history (and beers) to dig into!!
We both really enjoyed all the bars he took us too, the funky game style pizza for dinner, and the history and stories told throughout the night.

Sydney Urban Adventures
#3 of 232 Nightlife in Sydney
We had an awesome time visiting some super cool little bars, sampling some of their food and drinks and walking around Wynyard while learning some interesting facts about the area.
We took a 3 hour tour of The Rocks in Sydney, that included a great history of the area (and Sydney in general), dinner at a great brewpub, and a drink at another interesting bar.

If anyone wants to meet new people, listen to great music and experience Sydney’s best nightlife then I 100% recommend joining this pub crawl!

Excellent bar food and a good atmosphere.
It is the “Oldest Hotel” in Sydney and the Bar Staff were able to tell us why that is true with a nice story!
The Camelot Lounge Marrickville
#6 of 232 Nightlife in Sydney
The wonderful crazy paintings, mood lighting and dark red walls create the atmosphere of a '30s speak-easy' a club of discerning individuals enjoying a night 'on the town'.
The dance floor away from the band is an awesome idea.You can sit at a table more or less right at the stage, or dance on a reasonably sized dance floor in front of the bar.

Dropped in on Sunday arvo to start our bar crawl and were very impressed with the layout, plus the $5 drink price was a refreshing change up for Sydney.
Young Henrys were in Melbourne at my Local Football Club and I got to try a few of their beers and I knew I was heading up to Sydney I told them I would visit.

Handpicked Wines
#19 of 232 Nightlife in Sydney
The large room is split between wine lounge and bottle shop; separated by curved tasting bars where you can pull up a comfortable stool and embark upon a tasting adventure for between ten and twenty bucks.
Enjoy the tastings at the bar, or relax in the lounge with a cheese and wine flight; whichever you decide, you won’t be disappointed.

The Hero must be one of my favourite bars in Sydney and has a distinct old world charm founded by the legendary Ivan Nelson and continued by his wife, Kazuko.
All this takes place in the main bar with the gorgeous big fireplace roaring!!

The Belvedere Hotel, Sydney
#28 of 232 Nightlife in Sydney
Great little pub that has both a restaurant on the 1st Floor (fresh looking decked out in traditional Greek blue and white colours) and a bar/bistro area on the 2nd Floor.
Was in Sydney for a work trip, staying across the road at the Adina, popped in for a late lunch (3pm) and had the most delicious buttery barramundi up in the lounge bar.
