Known by locals as either the Darlo Bar or Royal Sovereign, this establishment is a popular haunt for locals in the area, particularly for an after work drink. Opt to sink back into one of the colourful, comfy sofas downstairs or head upstairs to the renovated beer garden area, with its relaxing lime green shades. ...read more
Upstairs Darlo Bar is a great area to meet up with friends. My friend had her birthday drinks here and they reserved her area with a birthday balloon, it was a nice touch. They have a good cocktail menu and when I asked the bartender what he recommended, he asked about my taste preference and offered to make one up with fresh ingredients - it was delicious!
The downstairs is a dive and normally filled with local ppl, but check out upstairs, the crowd is cool and funky and the missing roof is a real winner for a courtyard. They don't serve food, however you can order Thai or burgers from Burger Joint (YUM), and they deliver. We all had a such a fun night and love the fact of the food delivery.
Retro chic... I came here for a friend's farewell drinks. Parking was a little difficult on a busy friday night but I was ready to explore this pub my friend had called 'her other home'. As you walk in you realise this bar as character. Bright orange stools, mis matching chairs, a purple pool table- you know you aren't in kansas no more... However, I had a great night- friendlyread more
On first appearance, I always walked straight past this bar/pub as it seemed like a dodgy kind of bar. But when work mates had organised a meet up there I ventured in. As you walk in the retro feel of the bar is immediately noticed with old school furniture which doesn't match, arcade games and to my surprise and stair well leading upstairs...

I love the furniture in this bar. Retro chic. I also love the fact you can order food from the local restaurants in to the pub, so you never have to leave :)
I'd also like to add that now they have the upstairs area I tend to go up there as opposed to the retro area downstairs. Upstairs is an outdoor area (it's the building as is with the roof taken off. It's intended to look a bit like a garden with turf and white garden furniture. Aread more
Absolutely great pub that's just that, a pub!! The pokies are pushed towards the back and there's pool plus old school arcade games. They've recently opened an upstairs bar to accommodate smokers but it's not overbearing for those who don't puff. Great place to start a night, continue a night, end a night or spend a night.
