Let's face it, it's fun to get competitive on a night out. And while arm wrestling might cut it for a moment, it's likely to get you kicked out of some bars, and generally shunned in others. That's why you need games. More specifically, arcade games. When it's looking like an indoor sort of weekend, hole up in these fun-time pubs and spend all your pocket money on pinball and beers
Sydney pubs with arcade games
The great thing about an underground bar is that rail, hail or shine, it's all the same to the clever clogs who head here for a night of tinnies, whisky, fresh apple juice mixers and pinball. Throw some pizza and live gigs in there and you couldn't ask for better all-weather entertainment.
The huge beer garden at this refreshed Petersham pub is actually under cover so any day is a good one to drop by, but if you need something to keep your hands busy that isn't exclusively chicken burgers and craft beers, stake out the games room where they've got pinball, Buck Hunter and fooshockey.
