During your Sydney nightlife tour you cannot miss a stop in one of the typical Australian bars to enjoy a good beer. In fact, Australians are famous for their passion for beer and the city offers hundreds of ideal places to drink with friends. Typical Australian pubs are known as 'hotels' due to the long tradition of offering customers a room after drinking. These pubs are popular with travelers and students as they offer cheap discounts and happy hours. The term "bar" , on the other hand, is generally given to trendy and classy nightclubs.

A sore point is that unfortunately during the week the nightclubs close not after 1.30 am and only on weekends you can allow yourself a few more hours of partying. Australia has very strict rules regarding the provision of alcohol at night and many nightclubs stop serving alcohol even after midnight. Furthermore, the consumption of alcohol in the street is prohibited: under penalty of very high fines.
