Have a beer mate, at the Australian Hotel!

Looking for a friendly Australian pub/bar with lots of character in Sydney, try the Australian Hotel Bar. Located just across the Harbour Bridge, at the entrance to the area called “The Rocks” – a trendy, pub filled, neighborhood with a lot of restored Edwardian buildings and ideal for people watching. The pub is on the ground floor of the Australian Heritage Hotel(sic. 1913), and the hotel itself is not so well recommended, but the pub is. It is usually hard to find a seat, on the weekends it’s packed, but you can choose inside or out on the sidewalk. No shortage of beers, they provide at least 100 different brands, bottled and on tap, some limited additions, and also have guest beers and some beers unique to this pub. Their food is also recommended. You can get a very good pizza or try some unusual Australian dish, like Emu, croc or kangaroo (not for me sport!). It’s quirky, with dark wood, old furnishings, a little grubby and tons of local unpretentious atmosphere.
