Australian Youth
food's good, and the fishtank calms withered nerves!

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.

Man I love this place, I wasn't sure how the place was going to turn out, they took their time with the renovations but I think it will be worth it. See you there soon & mines a Vodka, Lime & Soda

The Aussie Youth is a fu*king great Pub and since they are now finished the Reno's I think it's only goinh to get better. Staff are unreal, Food Super and it's a great looking laid back funky atmoshere. Keep up the good work and I love all the paintings upstairs!!!

Great pub, myself and a heap of workmates usually hang out upstairs on thursday nights, and while it's lost a lot of the character it had before the reno - it's still a good place to sit and wind down after work. The fact that some of the (friendly & damn cute) barstaff are still there helps :) Biggest complaint is the pool room, there just isn't enough room for 2 tables in there.

The fish tanks gone! Nooooooo! Well, the pub is nearly finished, feels a bit souless at present, maybe once the regulars come back it'll 'warm' up again. The staff are still great folk, and the beer range is pretty good (alas, the Resches has gone though). It now has some great Plasma screens which should be good for the sport lovers amongst us. The foods still pretty good (but not as good as before in my humble opinion). Its not really an Irish theme pub, more a modern Australian style pub, kinda typical inner city trendy/funcky style is what the new owners appear to be aiming for, not sure if they are there yet though!

i liked the old version of the youth better. i liked how it was unassuming and also funky. i dunno how this new and renovated youth is going to be. but methinks its trying to be too trendy.

Pub Bludger from Sitting nest to you at the bar
yes it too am concerned at this bloody irish bs. Its fucking Australia not bloody Ireland How many Aussie theme pubs in Ireland are there? Hopefully none. My local is also being turned into an Irish pub. this Message goes to you scruffy Murphy Piss off Back to Ireland And stop stealing my Pool comp.

It has recently changed hands. The new owners (they also own an Irish style pub in Balmain) have plans to change it quite dramatically, not recommended at present (Aug 2003) since they are half way through renovations and seem to have stopped!

this is a great pub - but be warned, it gets really packed of an evening. lots of atmosphere but not much space. oh and the New is flat !!

As our company moves, we will miss this pub. The food is great, and the atmosphere is relaxed and cheerful. But, as with any good pub, it is the friendly staff that make the place. The Staff at the "Aussie Youth" are the best we have ever met, and we are glad to call them friends. Thanks Guys. Connect Interactive.
