Sydneys Best Trivia | Urban List Sydney

We all love a good trivia night. Nothing says epic mid-week catch up quite like it—devising a quirky team name, marvelling at the incomparable genius of that friend with a very specific and reliable knowledge of every episode of Seinfeld, the discounted drinks, and each week wondering (if you do win) how exactly you’ll make it through that mammoth meat tray. It’s a real blast.

So because we just love a solid trivia night, we’ve rounded up the best places in Sydney to grab a beer, put your thinking caps on and test out both yours and your mates’ ability to recall otherwise totally useless information.

These are Sydney’s best trivia nights.

Public House Petersham


Head to PHP for music trivia every Wednesday from 7pm. First place scores a $100 food and bev voucher, a $50 voucher for second place and a PHP merch pack for the bronze medalists of the evening. There are also stacks of good prizes to be won on the PHP wheel-of-fortune. 

The Unicorn Hotel


The Unicorn is known for its outrageous Cards Against Humanity nights (Wednesdays), but also for its epic Tuesday trivia nights. Offering a first-place prize in the form of a crisp $100 bar tab, you’ll want to study up on your oddball facts, pop culture and of course in the true Unicorn fashion, toilet humour. Check it out here

The Carrington

Surry Hills

Hosted by the one and only Hanna Conda, Turbo Trivia at The Carrington features general knowledge questions, as well as pop culture and a mid-quiz paper plane challenge. It's on every Tuesday from 7pm and prizes include Carrington cash to spend at the bar. More details are here

Dove & Olive

Surry Hills

Trivia Tuesdays go off at the Dove & Olive in Surry Hills. Grab a $12.90 schnitzel; tinnies for $6 and gather up your brainiest teammates to get cracking. It all kicks off at 7pm every week and bar cash prizes are up for grabs. Book your spot here.

Parkhouse Food & Liquor

Mona Vale

Thanks to the absolute heroes at Parkhouse Food & Liquor in Mona Vale, the pop-culture and entertainment knowledge you’ve soaked up on social media, Netflix and Stan may finally be useful for something. Their monthly trivia night follows a specific theme—from Avengers, to Disney and Star Wars, if you call yourself a fan, this is a great opportunity to prove it, and win prizes. Head over here for more info. 

Oxford Tavern


Tuesdays are a great day at the Oxford Tavern. Expect all-day $12 schnitzels and an epic round of Quiz Meisters trivia with cash prizes to win. The Tav is also home to a huge lineup of locally owned and independent beers on tap, live music, a BBQ smoker, a spritz menu and cocktail jugs mixed with PS40's house-made sodas and local booze—so, yes, there’s a lot to love here. More details are here

The Old Fitzroy


When publican Jamie Wirth snapped up The Old Fitz, he vowed to keep all of its best parts going—including their Wednesday night trivia, from 7.45pm. Expect two rounds of questions, with a couple of quickfire sets thrown in for good measure. Bar tabs are up for grabs if you win. 

The Forresters

Surry Hills

Every Tuesday at The Forresters you’ll be able to score $15 burgers and fries, while you and your mates put your smarts to the test with a round of trivia hosted by Quiz Meisters. There are two rounds with 15 questions each. As well as regular bar tab prizes ($100, $50 and $25 for first, second and third respectively) there’s a jackpot on offer too—which increases by $50 each week until someone scoops it up. Check it out and book a spot here
