The Sackville Hotel
Time Out says
The Sackville has had a good hosing down and tarting up since the days our grandads darkened its doorway, but it’s still a good dependable boozer, straddling the fine line between Balmain and Rozelle and welcoming locals for a drink, a meal or a good old-fashioned drinking session. While it’s all very shiny and new inside, certain parts of the Sackville hark back to its working class days – the TAB tucked away in the corner of the main bar and crowded with vocal punters is a pretty good clue. Happy hour runs from 4 till 6pm Monday to Friday; there's live tunes of a Friday night and DJs play on the weekend. If you're not feeling social, the attached bottleshop is one of the best in Sydney and is perfectly situated for picking up a traveller on the way home.
