Visited on 2nd April 2016. Large pub currently in the middle of a building site. Itís a modern place with covered seating all around plus a balcony. Itís all quite modern and fairly minimalist. Beer range was decent enough with a good smattering of craft keg beers I havenít seen elsewhere on my travels. Quality was good. Prices not bad. Thereís better in Sydney but a handy stop between Darling Harbour and Chinatown.

Enjoyed a beer (or two) and burger for lunch. Was not crowded and service was fine. Tap selection is restricted (could use some Kiwi imports) and the bottled selection was only marginally better. Not really a ícraftí beer bar in my books - but better than a mainstream pub.

Visited first time October 2015 for lunch on a Sunday. Food was unimpressing as was the beer list. Menu looked nice, but execution was not up to my expectations considering the prize. Craft beer knowledge in the staff today seems to be lacking.

Back again on October 11, 2015. Just stayed for one cider and ate some chicken wings that were nice, but didnít get any napkins or wet wipes for the hands. Styled up for October Fest right now. Nice fast service. Not very interesting tap list for me personally at this visit. Centrally located close to the central station, fairly close to Darling Harbour. Seems to be some parking fairly close.

Another visit around 12:45, just after opening, Sunday October 18, 2015. Had one beer, a special made for them not added to RB yet, had lunch. The curry I ate was nice, though the nan bread wasnít the best. Not much visitors today, also they very closing at 4pm due to a private function. Service OK.

Visited a few times, first July 10, once more July 11, last time August 10. 2013.
Very centrally located in or just next to Chinatown. Just next to the Sydney Entertainment Centre.
Brick building, right next to a rather big car park if youíre not drinking (much).
I only walked there, with my hostel within minutes, also very close/walking distance from Central. Trams run close, though didnít check for closest stop.
Decent bottled selection, even had Swedish Dugges Holy Cow on bottle, and said they used to have Idjit!, fun for me.
Had two beers on tap specially brewed for them (from St. Peters I think). Also some other Oz and NZ craft beers on tap.
Offer small samples of the beers if youíre not sure what you want, or if theyíre not sure youíll like it if the beer is more extreme. Samples really not enough for rating, more to choose what you want.
Staff was nice enough to let me charge my phone on the one visit.
On my first visit, a Wednesday then, they closed at 10 pm, wasnít a whole lot of guests.

Great place in the Harbour with a decent bottle selection. The staff can be hit and miss with their knowlege. Prices are high but the atmosphere is nice and the food is great. Worth a stop in.

Upscale modern hotel bar with a good selection of taps and bottles, but not quite good enough to be captivating. Cocktails seemed like they might be tasty.

nate2g  (1071) Boomtown!, Australia | December 26, 2009
A half decent range of bottled beers in the fridge with a solid import range of Mikkeller, Flying Dog, Rogue, Nogne O, Meantime and the Belgian Trappists. The local brews are well and truly under represented with a lack of quality micros on offer. They do have Rogue ales on tap and a few house brews from St Peters (nothing special). The barman was perhaps the most enthusiastic bar staff Iíve met regarding a push for quality beers but unfortunately the taps will always be limited as itís owned by Lion Nathan and it shows with most taps tied up with macros. A nice location in Darling Harbour though expensive to drink as expected. Itís not worth going out of your way for but have a look if youíre in the area.
