The Gaelic Club Sydney

A dose of Irish fun.

Sydney is no stranger to Irish pubs and bars. Usually the resemblance consists of a quirky name, Guinness on tap and not much else. The Gaelic Club, located on the Central Station end of Devonshire Street, is no such place. Pass through the green doors (what else?) to enter a den of celtic fun, fiddles and festivity.

There is an ongoing roster of cultural events: traditional Irish music, language and dance lessons, live music and talks. On the last Friday of every month, Green Lights Comedy holds a curated stand-up comedy show in the little-known top bar. Green Light feels like stepping into someone's living room and hosts Alexei Toliopoulos and Nikki Malyon emulate this warmth perfectly. If you feel like seeing decent comedy in a friendly, homey setting over a dirt-cheap pint of Kilkenny, look no further.
