The Sheaf is a Sydney institution, and a must-see spot for locals and visitors alike. The place attracts everyone from older men watching sport on one of the many screens in the front bar, to young party goers on a saturday night. Its popularity warrants the huge size of this place - it has two levels and many different areas to cater to the masses. My favourite spot for an afternoon beer with friends is the beer garden out the back, but head there on any Friday or Saturday night and I think the rooftop bar area is probably you're best bet. As day fades into night, a younger crowd will start filing through the doors and the dance floor will start to fill up. They usually have a DJ on the dance floor on the ground level, as well as one upstairs in the area that I think is known as Soda Bar. The food here is also great - their burgers are a good bet, but I usually go the sheaf's famous lamb salad with pine nuts, pumpkin and fetta - it is consistently awesome. Oh, the other thing you should know is that you can't go to this place without bumping into somebody you know - everybody in Sydney seems to love the Sheaf.
