Best Bars & Pubs in Paddington

Paddington is home to a huge array of bars, from heritage pubs dating back to the 1800’s, to underground speakeasy’s, to slick wine bars.  You are spoilt for choice.  In fact, Paddo is a top spot for a pub crawl!

Here I count down my 10 favourite bars and pubs in Paddington (in no particular order):

  1. THE PADDINGTON
    The old Paddington Arms Hotel is now The Paddington, thanks to a Merivale makeover.  There’s a British twist and an old butcher theme.  Great for groups.

     384 Oxford Street, Paddington
  2. CHARLIE PARKER’S
    Dimly lit underground speakeasy, specialising in cocktails.  Upstairs you will find Fred’s, a restaurant with a farm to table approach.

    380 Oxford Street, Paddington
  3. THE BELLEVUE
    Renovated Paddo local corner pub, set in a leafy back street, with a bright and airy dining room, serving fancy pub grub.
    The Bellevue website
    159 Hargrave Street, Paddington 
  4. PADDO INN
    Lively neighbourhood pub with a front bar that’s great for people watching and a monochrome dining room that serves up a Modern Australian menu.

    338 Oxford Street, Paddington 
  5. THE LORD DUDLEY
    Classic (and relatively untouched) English themed local pub with a renovated light filled dining room serving a menu with a focus on English classics.  (Ok, it’s technically located in Woollahra, but close enough!)

    236 Jersey Road, Woollahra 
  6. 10 WILLIAM STREET
    An intimate Italian wine bar at its best.  Brought to us by the guys behind Fratelli Paridiso.

  7. THE ROYAL
    Fiveway’s favourite local with a small rooftop offering stunning city skyline views, should you make it up the stairs!

    237 Glenmore Road, Paddington 
  8. FOUR IN HAND
    Long time locals favourite, once home to chefs Colin Fassnidge and Guillaume Brahimi, but now returned to its roots.  A pub with no airs and graces.
    Read my review of Four in Hand
    105 Sutherland Street, Paddington
  9. GRAND NATIONAL
    Another much loved local that’s undergone a face lift, The Nash offers classic pub fare, with a dog friendly front bar.

    161 Underwood Street, Paddington
  10. THE VILLAGE INN
    Sadly, Irish favourite Durty Nelly’s is no more, but in its place we have The Village Inn.  A classier take for this much loved local, well known for its Trivia Nights.
    The Village Inn website
    9-11 Glenmore Road, Paddington
