Bondi Beach Australia Best Bars

Australians are attracted to beaches as much as they are to pubs and clubs..

What would Sydney be without a beach? Australians love their beaches, and Sydney offers 70 miles of coastline for the pleasure of locals and visitors.
The most popular of these is Bondi (pron." Bond-eye") and it's a very James Bond-ish location. National and international celebrities in town make it a regular stop, and they mingle with Sydneysiders and backpackers from all over the globe. It's filled with cafes, restaurants and pubs.
Other beaches spots are Coogee, Manly and the North Shore.
Access to Bondi and nearby Coogee from Sydney is via buses 380 or 382 from Circular Quay, via ferry to Manly and the North Shore.
Pubs and Clubs
PubClubbers at The Oaks, one of the beach area's most popular pubs.
After a hard day of soaking up the sun, the beach areas of Sydney provide several spots for thirsty beach dwellers. Sydney's beaches offer plenty of choices.
In Bondi, the Bondi Icebergs Club is a classic kickback beach bar. It offers a view over the southern part of the beach, inexpensive beer and live music Sunday afternoons.
The Bondi Hotel is a huge pub featuring several different bar areas. It's pretty sedate by day, but at night the backpackers make it quite rowdy.
The other beach spots are also crowded with pubs. The Steyne at Manly, The Coogee Bay Hotel at Coogee, The Clovelly at Clovelly and the North Shore pubs: The Greenwood, The Commodore, The Rag and Famish, The Victory Bar and The Oaks are all terrific thirst-quenching spots and share a few "schools" with your friends or new mates.
The Oaks has five bars and a big beer garden with a giant Oak tree in the middle. It has great food but if you don't like it don't blame the chef because patons cook their own steak. It's ocated at Neutral Bay on Sydney's North Shore and is a very popular pub.
Forget all this great bar info on PubClub.com? Billy The Pigs, 10 minutes from Bondi Beach in Bondi Junction, has Internet access. Cheap food ($3-9), beer and sports games also provide entertainment in a very relaxed atmosphere. Walk out with a wine bottle sporting your picture on it. The crowd is mostly young and definitely casual.
