Summary of The Day: Sydney comes with a storied past. In the hidden alleys and dens of the city’s inner streets, an assortment of artists, criminals, strippers, activists and hookers have all led their varied lives. This is a town that lived by its own notorious anarchy and rum-induced monopoly during colonization, which later evolved into a place of street gangs, brothels and unsolved murders.
But Sydney's history also involves beatniks, underground writers, artists and secret societies. Taking a look back, let's bring a few characters back to life — take a journey into their haunts and tell their colorful tales of mischief, with our ultimate Sydney historic Pub crawl.
Who deserves to be called Sydney's oldest drinking establishment? We will let you decide for yourself on this 4 hour walking pub tour of 4 of Sydney's oldest pubs.
Any Sydneysider can map the city by its historical pubs. These atmospheric watering holes (officially called hotels because they once offered rooms as well as beer) provide a hedonistic key to exploring Australia's most beautiful city. They range from venerable sandstone relics to elegant Victorian bars and boisterous 1920s working men's pubs rich in art deco flourishes. After several decades of neglect, lavish facelifts are making these antique pubs the height of Sydney night life and fashion. Many now have top-notch restaurants, others spectacular views. But each offers a bar-side window onto Australia's past, which, as Mark Twain observed after an 1895 visit, "does not read like history, but the most beautiful lies."
Visit four of Sydney's oldest and most famous pubs and bars. As you taste some of the best beer Sydney has to offer, sit back and listen to the stories and histories of these fascinating watering holes that have served the public for over 100 years.
Along the way you visit a variety of Pubs, all with their own story to tell. Of course, no drinking tour would be complete without a beer or two. With many local breweries, you won't have to look far to find a great-tasting beer. Whatever you enjoy, you will certainly find something to quench your thirst and nibble on.
