Bars and pubs

Sydney has some fine drinking establishments. Some small bars are dotted around the inner city and in the inner suburbs that are worth checking out. A few favourites near the the Travelodge Wynyard are: The Fox Hole, Shirt Bar, Stitch Bar, The Baxter Inn, and Freda’s if you want to step out a bit. Don’t take our word for it though… here are some reviews.

Craft Beer

If you are keen on craft beer, inner city Sydney has a few drinking spots that might suit.

Google map of Sydney inner city craft beer venues, many of which are reviewed at The Crafty Pint.

“There is a beer revolution going on in Australia. Across the country, hundreds of microbreweries are crafting unique beers where not too long ago once there was barely a handful. The days of choice meaning heavy or light are long gone as traditional styles are rediscovered, new styles created, exciting flavours explored and ancient recipes reinvented.” (Crafty Pint).

    Charla,When you first came to Louisville I was one of your first interviews. We sat on the back porch of Sun Valley Golf Course and cheattd about how rampant breast cancer was in our community. I now work for Community Services Project, Inc. which creates oppurtunities for jobs for adult with disabilities. I wish we could do a show on changing the mindset of businesses and individuals about the capabilities of people with disabilities. As I travel the metro Louisville area, so many times I hear the same message that disabled people are not capable of holding down a job. WRONG! they have special talents that are unbelievable. Just ask Dwight Sabo from Texas Roadhouse about his employee with disabilities or ask Phlen’s Bakery about their two wonderful disabled employees. They’ll give you the scoop. It’s time for a Power to Change Show on people with disabilities. You can reach me at 502-553-0233 or the office 502-368-4886.
