We’re all for getting out there and exploring the city, but some nights simply call for those closer-to-home comforts. You know – a short trek around the corner to your local pub for a wallet-friendly feed, or a few hard-to-beat drink specials at your neighbourhood cocktail bar. This week, suss out some goodies in your own postcode, with our wrap-up of Sydney’s best locals nights.
The Carrington Locals Nights
The Carrington has a whole lotta love for its Surry Hills neighbours, with local residents and workers scoring a 10% discount whenever they visit, as well as $5 happy hour drinks from 4-6pm each day. What’s more, during locals night each Monday, locals card holders can grab a bowl of pasta and a glass of pinot for $15, and maybe even win big in one of the weekly locals badge draws.
The Village Inn Locals Nights
Paddington punters; you’ll discover the ultimate cure for those Monday blues at this smartly refurbished gastropub, which will chop a hefty 20% off your total food bill as part of its popular weekly locals night. Head down to The Village Inn from 5pm and start off your week with gourmet burgers and upscale pub fare, without breaking the bank.
The Annandale Hotel Locals Nights
Locals night at The Annandale is a jam-packed affair, featuring all the specials, freebies and fun needed to end your Tuesday on a high note. Not only will you find a primo feasting situation – a hearty steak, chips and a schooner of Young Henrys for $22 – there’s also Jokers Jackpot, free pool and the chance to score yourself a meat tray.
The Roosevelt Locals Nights
The Roosevelt is one of the suavest little cocktail bars around, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll need to spend a fortune enjoying it. Synch your visit with Tuesday’s locals night and you’ll get a choice of two main plates for just $20 each, or a full three-course menu for $35. And we all know that means more money left over to spend on those covetable cocktails.
The Burwood Hotel Locals Nights
Burwood locals in the know flock to this breezy modern pub each Tuesday, to take advantage of its value-packed locals night special. Head in and flash proof of your 2134 postcode to score a 250g rump steak served with fries or coleslaw, plus your choice of sauce and a wine, beer, or softy, all for just $21.34.
Watsons Bay Hotel Locals Nights
The Watsons Bay’s sports bar hosts a cracker of a locals night each Thursday, complete with badge draws, meat raffles and a swag of complimentary nibbles for snacking on. What’s more, if you sign yourself up for a locals card, you’ll enjoy a nifty 10% discount every time you visit.
