Time Out Sydney

Time Out Sydney locates the best top weekly trivia nights and what you stand to win

Churchills Sports Bar

They also do a nifty little 'Minute to Win' segment in which you can compete for a special prize by completing a physical challenge in 60 seconds or less. Thursdays 8pm. Kingsford.

The Forresters

The Forresters is busy on a slow night, so be warned: when trivia's on, the place gets absolutely packed. Get in early so you can order and finish off a schnitzel before you and your team take on the rest of the bar in a rowdy game of trivia. Check their Facebook page for clues to which theme will be covered off each week. They've also got additional spot prizes on the night. Tuesdays 7.30pm. Surry Hills.


Four in Hand Hotel

Check out their Facebook page for (very cryptic) questions before heading to this old reliable to play the game. Mondays, 6.45pm Paddington.

The Golden Barley Hotel

The ultimate suburban quiz night: the crowd is always huge, as it's badge draw night, and the teams are I-know-my-shit trivia tough. The questions are tough too, especially good are his list questions (who's won best director and actor, for instance). And stick around for the jackpot. It's $2 to enter, but, for merely guessing the right year in the 20th Century, your team could go home far richer tahn you arrived. Mondays 7.30pm. Enmore.

Great Northern Hotel

Our favourite part of trivia night at the Great Northern? It's gotta be the interactive audio-visual element that takes this one to the next level. Wednesdays 7.30pm. Chatswood.

The London Hotel

Host Michael plays a good game – two pop-culture heavy rounds of 20 questions that skew to a younger crowd. The room here is relaxed, the crowd friendly and those pizzas go down a treat. Careful though: the three-question jackpot round often has a trick question that will crush you. Mondays 7pm. Balmain.


Strawberry Hills Hotel

They stick to a pretty regimented schedule at the Strawberry. The trivia is themed according to which Wednesday it falls on: the first Wednesday of the month centres on music; second Wednesdays are all about sport; third Wednesdays mean TV and Film, and on the last Wednesday of the month, it all gets combined for a lucky dip. The venue also lies outside the lockout boundaries, so if you and your crew want to hang out for hours afterward (be responsible, please!), you're welcome to kick on and give yourself a whopper of a Wednesday hangover. Wednesdays 7.30pm. Surry Hills.

The Toxteth Hotel

Check out this laidback Glebe institution's Facebook page to find out which theme they're focussing on each week, and get in early for cheap dinners and live music before the revelry begins. Mondays, Tuesdays (music triva) 7.30pm. Glebe.

Trinity Bar

Trinity does a solid trivia night each week, and participants are encouraged to dress up to match the them, which is always announced on their Facebook page. They tend to stick to the tried-and-true here – stuff like '80s retro and film/cinema is what you can expect at the Surry Hills favourite. Wednesdays 7.30pm Surry Hills.
