The Paddington Tavern
A mainstay in an evolving suburb that doesn't muck around — it's a pub through and through.
This lively local haunt, known affectionately as the Paddo, has survived Paddington's rapid gentrification, maintaining its distinctive down-to-earth character. It's also home to the Sit Down Comedy Club (est. 1992), Brisbane's best known comedy venue, with a changing weekly line-up.
If you crave big screens and surround sound for your full-on sports viewing experience, the Main Bar has you covered. For those not content with spectator sports, there are four pool tables to feed your competitive spirit. Whether you fancy a cold one, a cocktail or a casual bite to eat, the Sync Bar is a bright 'n' breezy spot for hanging out. The Paddo has a few different menus for your perusal: a full one from 12pm, a 'quick lunch' menu, a late-night menu and the nightly comedy club menu.
Settle in for some chips and a chuckle or ball games and beer because The Paddo's here to stay.
