It's Saturday night in Sydney and we've taken a bit of a detour on the way back from The Harp
Irish pub in Tempe and somehow landed up at the Warren View. We step down into a pub which is lively, cheering and dancing to a band playing classic rock covers and the odd original in the corner. It's a bit of a trial getting to the bar and I'm feeling a little delicate so we forgo the rowdy front bar in favour of the beer garden, which is a pleasant, tree filled area filled with chatting groups.
There are renovations currently going on, which probably contributes a little to the packed feel of the place tonight, on a night where most of the pubs we've passed by have been quite empty. The single pool table can be seen recieving a little action through the large windows from the beer garden, and the band is still in full swing when we decide to rock on. Taking a slightly wrong choice of exit we have to battle our way through a crowd of middle-aged revellers and almost take one on the chin from someone's mum dancing an Irish jig by the bar. It's certainly rowdy in the front bar this evening, and this of course being Enmore the crowd consists of, well, the odd 'less than sane' person, shall we say?
We like the beer garden, and it's an unpretentious, take-me-as-I-am scene here, which is obviously pretty popular, in contrast to the Sly Fox
, which as we pass on the way home, is like a morgue.
Strange Saturday for us.....
