A room filled with middle-aged karaoke enthusiasts belting out '70s and '80s classics has never been as fun as this; just make sure to show up in a big group later at night and with a couple of stiff drinks in you.

Widely renowned as one of the more bizarre establishments in Sydney, the person with the microphone is king at the Pickled Possum, and drinks are frequently made by seniors wearing rubber gloves. There are no booths, so you have to be prepared to sing to a crowded room, but the eccentric collection of inebriated 'characters' are having so much fun and taking the karaoke enterprise so seriously you wouldn't want to be in a booth.

    I used to love this place but came here tonight and have never been more disappointed. John the owner was not welcome locked people out and the kicked the small amount of patina out early cause he needed to close and wanted to go home. Do not go here - john needs to retire to keep a Sydney institution alive
