Guest Review (5 Dec 2003)

Sensational!!!!! Definitely the pub to visit if you are a traveller in Sydney. The music is live seven nights a week (lots of great covers) and the highlight would have to be Beau on Sunday nights. But every night the dancefloor is crowded and swaying. Service is friendly and fast with lots of Irish employees who are expert at pouring the black stuff. Make sure you leave a tip to hear the staff ring the old O'Malley's bell - apparently a tradition? (or so the staff say!). Toss The Boss on Sunday nights was particularly a drawcard for my mates with plenty of free drinks to be had! Have to love that! In summary, one night at O'Malley's is not enough! I will definitely be back...

Best night by FAR is Beau on a Sunday night. Head down there for 7:30 for 'toss the boss'. Good tunes and always busy. OK at other times but seasoned backapackers from the Cross head there specifically for Beau. He is a O'Malleys legend!

Parody is alive and well.....unfortunately, WHAT THE **** are the bands doing? especially the Midnite Sun and the group on Fridays????, play decent music, and just play it well, Omalleys is getting a bad name around the cross because of this. Needs Fixed, cause this place use to ROCK!!

A few pints is what you need to listen to the bands, and then a few more to stay.....especially Fridays!!!! Go the POMS!!!

This place was going off after the World Cup opener - a great venue to watch the rest of the matches. See you there on final night. GO YOU MIGHTY SCOTS!

The Guiness is terrible. Not like home. If you meet and root a girl called Randy from Canada- you are not alone.

No self respecting Sydney person would be seen there. Cranky staff, over crowded, and in Kings Cross. There are much better pubs to go to People!!

Some watering hole or what. Shovelled some of the old black stuff down me whenever I visited this place. Good music on Sundays with the Dark guy on vocals and everyone else falling over. Terrific !!!!

Gray and I got absolutely leathered at this wonderful pub and had a special "romantic trist" that evening. Been together 5 years to the day and would love to come back again to relive that "special moment"!!!
