Some people love the Civic for its Art Deco finishes, craft beer specials and location convenient to most city offices. Another, very separate group of people love the Civic for its underground nightclub, with one of the best sound systems around these parts. A big night here is a rite of passage for Sydneysiders and the club has been witness to the disgrace of everyone on our editorial team at least once. But if it’s too early for cutting sick, stay upstairs where the vibe is more relaxed. We’re thinking that these guys might be Chuck Hahn’s best customers. Not only do they have the full fleet of James Squire brews on tap, but also the original Hahn and Kosciuszko pale ale, Mr Hahn’s Snowy Mountains side-project. You'll also find a Thai restaurant named Peppercorn at the Civic.
