Why locals recommend it
When two storied gay bars—owned by a notorious lesbian operator—shut down in Newtown, Sydney’s second gay ghetto, the community moved here. This inclusive establishment offers great cocktails and even greater times—as well as delicious barbecue in the backyard beer garden. And it’s open until 4 am on Saturdays. Although very mixed, this is one of the most popular places in Sydney amongst the lesbian community. The Inner West has long been a working-class lesbian heartland, and vibrant Newtown is still one of the best places for lesbians to meet and mingle.

One of the most well-known pubs in Sydney, with a great area to enjoy on the ground floor, including a beer garden, and a dancefloor on the first floor
