City South

Central Business District - The big melting pot
 
The CBD. The melting pot that is the real Sydney. Here you'll find the highest concentration of extremely fashionable pubs and a few rough diamonds sticking out like sore thumbs.

It's because of it's mixed nature that the CBD contains a fine variety of pubs and bars. You can be in a Yuppie bar one minute, step outside, walk for a couple of minutes and find yourself in a pokie den or a pub full of just-eligible drinkers eager to grab another youngster of the opposite (or the same) sex.

Generally, you'll find that the CBD is the safest bet for most people out for drinking, and our coverage under this area extends from Park Street in a long strip to Central Station. We're confident you'll find what you're looking for here.

The area has now been split into two, City North and City South, to try and ease the single area which has begun to split at the seams!
