spacious and classy, but the safari bar is a strange addition

Here's an important tip for you for next Anzac Day. The nexus of Balmain's two-up fever happens here, between Dick's and the Exchange. We noticed this before we even caught sight of the pub. The street was wedged and coming closer we could clearly see that the overspill from both pubs was massive, but we'd arranged to meet people here, so we ventured in. It quickly becomes apparent, on a day like this, that there's no way you can find your mates in a two-level pub packed out with hundreds of people. We coudn't actually get to the balcony, or anywhere near the back-bar two-up, or into the main bar, or in fact anywhere. So we waited for Trent and sent him to the bar!

The Exchange is much more spacious than Dick's, it's neighbour, and with the upper floor balcony and darker lighting, attracts a slightly classier clientelle. The bar staff are great, and the management is very professional, but the prices are far too high (especially when compared to those at Dick's) - a glass of lemonade, for example, costs $4!

So there I was, standing under the Okapi, in the middle of a "dead by dawn" Evil Dead II flashback. Quite put the wind up me. Odd.
