Republic Hotel is a contemporary pub in Sydney’s CBD. Popular with business types, it offers all you would expect from an upbeat city establishment, and more. The main bar has beer, sports and entertainment, while the plush cocktail lounge caters to more intimate nights out. Bar food is served, but for more formal dining head upstairs to Republic Dining for sophisticated bistro fare with modern Australian and French influences.

I find this bar or pub a little too small for my liking.
What I do like is that the drinks are super super cold. It's like the glasses are chilled as well as the beer and soft drinks to produce the coldest drinks in Sydney. But saying that I find the down stair bar way too crowded and doesn't take many people to in bar to create a line to get a drink!
Pokie room upstairs, but can't say I have been to the restaurant. Shame simonc22 didn't fully review the restaurant and explain why he gave it 4 stars?
Staff are fine, but again service is flawed as the bar fills up easily and makes it very crowded. So getting to the bar and then getting severed can be a slight hassle. If your walking from Townhall or Pitt Street mall to the Quay (and didn't take George Street, why not?) this is well worth a stop in for one. But overall I wouldn't be spending my evenings here.
No atmosphere and tried to cram too much into a small bar. Including TAB area.
