Beach Road Hotel
Bands, a great beer garden and your favourite booze in Bondi.
January 29, 2016
A Bondi institution for more than two decades, the Beach Road Hotel is one of the only venues the eastern suburbs for free live music, with bands blowing the roof off their bandroom most nights of the week — they get some pretty great acts, and they're almost always free.
On the weekend you'll find the front bar packed with enthusiastic sports fans watching their game of choice on one of several screens, while outdoors you'll discover the venue's enormous, sun-soaked beer garden. The latter has long been a preferred destination of locals and backpackers looking to enjoy a few bevs in the sunshine — and with more than 20 different beers available by the bottle, plus a recently refurbished cocktail bar, you shouldn't have any trouble finding something decent to drink. If you're hungry, they've got a rock solid menu and their daily specials include all your typical pub favourites, including tacos, cheeseburgers and, of course, the humble parma.
