Try Manning Bar at the University of Sydney. Close to Glebe hostels. Other Uni have similar facilities .

It's not as raging as it was 20 years ago...

There are a lot of student hang outs in Newtown as this is close to Sydney Uni as follows:

Zanzibar: cocktails on the roof and regular bar on 2 levels

Kuleto's Cocktail Bar: has a great happy hour btwn 5-7pm I think where it is 2 for one...be prepared to wait tho!!

The Coopers Arms: a bit grungier than most but friendly staff and cool couches out the back

The Town Hall Hotel: famous for being open till 5am...the downstairs bar is where the action is with a DJ spinning alternative rock as well as pool tables.

All of these are on King St Newtown where you can also find lots of great restaurants for a cheap feed before hitting the town!
