For $10 you can get a jug of beer, and for another $10 you can get the "all you can eat pizza special". Think both of these run from 4pm - 7pm. You won't beat those prices anywhere is Sydney. Staff are great too!

Went to see the hermit crab races with some friends. The place was packed with people. A ton of tourists! Great vibes:) Good music and everyone seemed to enjoy the dancing. The crab racing was funny but a bit anticlimactic. It's a cool place to...More

Located in backpacker district, this bar seems to be very popular (went on a Monday night), and packed with ppl in their early 20s. Music is mostly 90s pop. Ppl seem to enjoy themselves, though it's the usual 1/3 girls, 2/3s boys setting.

This is literally the best bar ever for backpackers/people in their early 20s. On Monday nights there is crab racing which is an absolute blast and where you can win great prizes. Such a fun place!!!!
