    Bourbon and Beefsteak Bar.: The new 'hotspot'

    by SydneyGal Written Feb 28, 2004

    This is the new hotspot in Sydney for drinking/ its initial hey day (a few decades ago), this was the 'IT' place to be seen. It eventually degenerated into a seedy bar that you would only go to if deperate and not able to get in anywhere else.... now it has had a makeover and it is the new 'IT' place again.

    Dress Code: Dress to impress or you might not get in!

    In all Sydney you find a lot of nice pubs and bars, and it’s only your own taste of an evening out, what you like the best. Personally I am attached to Kings Cross. There is always a lot to do about the safety about this place, but I am feeling safer here then in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. Kings Cross is the most well known place in Sydney to having a great pleasant evening time. But of course, not everybody likes going out in a place that is well known for its seediness. In all this area I find the Bourbon and Beefsteak Bar, an American-themed bar and grill the best place to be. Open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and a live band from the early evening till the early morning. The atmosphere is always jovial, particularly on weekends and whenever the US Navy is in port. Be prepared for a lot of red carpet, mirrors and the aroma of bourbon breath. The only negative point is the security guards from the pub. I notice that they can be very racist against black / brown people, especially when the pub is almost full, they are the first one they get to leave to make space for other people.

    King's cross area. Bourbon and Beefsteak was the best place to party. Good food, drinks, and live entertainment.
    The celebrated Bourbon and Beefsteak, a durable icon which has survived the pressures of city development for some 30 years, provides breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner 24 hours a day with great live entertainment and an open bar. Established in 1967, the Bourbon and Beefsteak was the focus of activity in the Cross in the heady R & R (rest and relaxation leave) days of Sydney in the late 60s.
