You can run into all sorts of people at The Cooper's. For instance, I once ran into someone who'd been a mate while I was still living in South Wales. Turns out he'd moved away to Bristol when I went to London, overstayed his Visa, ended up being sent back to Aus and running into us at the Cooper's a few scant weeks after I arrived. Odd or what? Well, maybe not - it's a popular place, and a lot of people blow through.

The pub has changed a little since then, with the front and back bars now facing each other through where the dividing wall used to be - it's now one big bar instead of two smaller ones. The crowd still looks broadly similar - early twenties most of them - and the noise level is still just the same, matching the level you'd expect from a young crowd like this.

Mesonal from Newtown
Can be a bit rough at times, but does have an excellent selection of bear, and is usualy fairly easy on the ears. 3.5/5

Really good balance of tradition and style. Still retains its old pub atmosphere, but has stylish characteristics as well. Eclectic mix of people. Great beer selection, including the award-winning Mountain Goat Beer (all three types) from Melbourne. Always friendly staff. Well run.

I hated this pub at first but it has really grown on me....go to the back for the pool tables and wilder side but the front is pretty cool, it was a pub should be...not at all pretentious!
