Sydney has a labyrinth of amazing Beer Hotels, from the relaxing Beer Garden Hotels to the Nightclub Beer Hotels, to the local Indy Beer Hotels and then great Band Beer Hotels – it is all about the atmosphere and the quality of the beer.
Every Great Beer Hotel from the Rocks to Paddington to Annandale and Kings Cross have something to offer and a unique set of patrons, so you are sure to find one that suits your personality and style, and with or without your friends, the beer will still taste great.
However if you are having trouble choosing, and want some tips for choosing which Great Beer Hotel would provide the right atmosphere for you, then listen up, as we share with you our Top Ten Best Beer Hotels below;
The Relaxing Beer Garden Hotels
If you work in the Corporate World and want some Beer while still dressed in your Suit, take yourself along to The Opera Bar in Circular Quay. The Opera Bar offers a Sunny spot to sink a beer with your work buddies or female friends.
The Opera Bar is positioned close to the Opera House, so why not go to an event and then a casual stroll to The Opera Bar. The Opera Bar is also great for tourists who want to sit outside and enjoy the Sydney atmosphere and famous view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the bay.
The Nightclub Beer Hotels
Hugo's Longue is both a nightclub, Pizza Restaurant and Bar offering the opportunity to get an early start – a nice filling dinner followed by beer and cocktails and a little dancing in the dark.
Hugo's Lounge has a reputation of being friendly and inviting, with comfortable décor and a relaxing feel. Hugo's Lounge would require nice and neat attire, but if you love to dress up and look your best then Hugo's is where you will feel right at home.
Located at Level 1, 33 Bayswater Road, Kings Cross – close to the city, the Kings Cross Train station or there are always plenty of Taxi's if you plan to drink good beer while eating an scrumptious pizza too.
The Cargo Bar Lounge
The Cargo Bar Lounge is another great Nightclub Beer venue that stands out from the rest. The Cargo Bar Lounge offers a Restaurant and Bar atmosphere and the beer is always good with the great selection of food.
