George Hotel Waterloo

Just like the name, this neighbourhood pub is making a comeback.

Formerly relegated to generic pub status, the George is going through a bit of a renaissance. All of the Aussie watering-hole staples are still there – dozens of TVs playing live sport, pokies for those feeling lucky and a sturdy selection of beers on tap. But the new drawcard is Hughes Barbecue, Anton Hughes' (previously of Bovine & Swine) new American barbecue joint smoking up a menu of juicy meats in the beer garden. Live music is a given, with a roster of rock, jazz, blues and acoustic musicians on hand to provide the Sunday session soundtrack. The revival has brought with it an influx of younger crowds, giving The George a new lease on life.
