We dropped by here to have pizza and drinks before moving on. Big screens to watch the sport, nice atmosphere.

I thought maybe it was just anti-ameranism or anti military but after reading other posts I think maybe the bouncers are just an xenophobic power trip. Avoid these clowns and head elsewhere.

We enjoyed popping into The Argyle during happy hour, we liked to share the $25 jugs of Sangria and a couple of pizzas... The vibe is good especially when the soulful DJ plays his old style tunes mixed with modern sounds..This place is fairly quiet...More

What a terrible establishment is this place. Racist, discriminatory bouncers who picked on one of our friends due his skin colour. Right out discrimination making claim people were intoxicated when our group simply went out to a restaurant before heading to the argyle for Bastille...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
