In a city where pubs are on every second corner, this one is certainly a rose between the thorns. Coming up to Summer you appreciate a good beer garden more than most things and The Rose has one up there with the best of them. With a large wall of plants and heavy wooden tables and benches to sit on, this ad-hoc beer garden is chilled by day and awesome by night.

Their kitchen makes a pretty mean pizza, but also does salads, steaks, burgers and more. They have taken steps of late to brighten up your weeknight. Trivia
on Tuesday is free and entertaining, Acoustic/open mic sessions on Wednesday provide some great background music and two for one cocktails on Thursdays helps ease that late-in-the-week stress.

The staff are generally hipster cum good sort and not your normal surly barstaffer. If you go there, search out George behind the bar for a good laugh and an honest drink recommendation, as did
Powderfinger
on their visit to Sydney as
noted in their blog.

The crowd is a great blend of locals, journos, arts industry types, tradies, sports fans and die hard locals. I have had many a great night here and they mix it up – showing the early morning Aussie games, complete with bacon and eggs rolls, for the World Cup and having a dress up function event for the non-event that turned out to be election night, 2010.

On the weekend, as the DJ spins some great tunes while darkness descends, The Rose shows itself as a pub with a great local atmosphere, a well equipped selection of beers on tap and a diamond in the rough.
