Keen to step up your date night repertoire? You’ve come to the right place. Enter The Hero of Waterloo, the one place in Sydney where you can knock back a cocktail or two, kick up your heels at the fireplace and spot a casual ghost-in-residence.
Known for its stellar pub feeds and trad-swing live music, The Hero of Waterloo is one of the most haunted pubs in Sydney having been frequented by many a paranormal event in the past. Yep, if anything is likely to give you actual chills, word on the street is that the owner of this watering hole back in 1849 pushed his wife down the stairs to her death and now, her ghost likes to rearrange furniture and play on the piano in the middle of the night.
