This is my local, been going here on and off for a few years.
Whats good - comfy chairs, tv's if you want to watch sport, awsome bar staff (how do they do it), pleasing decor. The music is still excellent.
Whats Bad - no cushion room, some lack of atmosphere, free pool, cheap eats, Extractor fans - lack of, tv screens in a pub!, the games for hire are gone as well.
The same people still come here a mix of young and old, poor, rich trendy, uncool. The music although no jukebox is still great, and after about 6 or 7 visits, the atmosphere is still just about there. A few womens touches needed to make it a bit more homely again. maybe some matching chic board games. Overall still one of those rare pubs in sydney that you can relax in.

It's Sunday. The pubguide team has just helped Trent move house, and we're all parched and up for a drink. One of us is also horribly hung-over. Someone suggests wandering off to Glebe to find some food and beer.
The name "Australian Youth" comes up. We head straight there.
An appealing little building, the Youth is spread over two floors with outside seating. Downstairs is more saloon-bar style, with upstairs sporting pool tables and a less formal layout. It definitely feels a lot 'warmer' in the upstairs bar, and that's where the pool is.
We stay downstairs for our food, all but one ordering the Steak Sandwich and recommending it thoroughly. The hungover one starts to come round a little. We get some more beer in and wander upstairs.
It's a little way off Broadway itself, so when the main drag is busy (for instance, on review day, the Lansdowne was wedged to overflowing), the Youth can be pleasant. Converseley, we're told that it's often packed at weekends. It's definitely a spot we'll be visiting again, so we have no qualms recommending it in turn, though it falls a little short of the 'beer glass' rating.
