This rusted on local serves up generous doses of sudsy good times

The Darlo Bar moniker is so set in stone you’d be rightly surprised if you actually heard someone using the rightful name of this Darlinghurst Road corner boozer, ‘The Royal Sovereign Hotel’. But Darlo Bar sounds just that much better. Most inner city types have swung through for a gathering here, where drinking oscillates between the sunny outdoor patio upstairs, the recycled furniture in the downstairs bar area, or maybe a coveted spot on the footpath to sidle-up with Darlinghurst natives. Ground level is the perfect place to slug down a few schooners of Coopers Green and have a lash on the pool table. It's also prime positioning for picking up, if you're flying solo. You can even dial in a bit of grub off a menu that aggregates a heap of local food joints (including the much loved Burger Joint - $10 burgers of whopping size. Half for lunch, half for dinner!) and there’s a neat list of cocktails including a few by the jug for those seeking a bit more from their sudsy refreshments. Most evenings there are activities, from DJs over weekend nights to trivia and pool competitions mid-week. Oh, and there’s a wide range of booze specials to keep the heavy population of relaxed locals happy too. It’s a pub with a great vibe, rusted-on to the Darlinghurst scene, with all sorts of odds-and-sods packing the joint in for boozy good times.
