The Fortune of War

For a taste of history, head over to The Rocks for a drink at Sydney's oldest pub, The Fortune of War. With a long list of craft beer and an eclectic wine selection to match, this historic watering hole has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a wharfie pub in the early 1800s.

The Bucket List

Just a short walk from the shore, The Bucket List is a Bondi institution. From local craft beer to tropical cocktails, this laidback beach pub has everything you need to cool down on a summer's day. If you're in town over the weekend, be sure catch the live band on Sunday arvo, which keeps the party going till late.

The Warren View

The home of footy in the Inner West, The Warren View is a great place to catch a game while your away. And, with classic Aussie counter meals available from the bistro, you won't have to worry about dinner plans before kick-off. After the final whistle, stick around for a nightcap in the beer garden or challenge your mates to a round of pool in the games room.
