The Glebe Hotel
The Glebe Hotel is back (formerly known as The Australian Youth Hotel) with a bang after months of renovations.
Its stellar trivia nights and two-for-one meal deals still reign supreme but now, the hotel exudes touches of beautiful, exposed brickwork, wooden tables and a bespoke jacaranda mural by Sydney-based artist Indigo Jo. Their even fancier upstairs space Nude (named so because of the fact that back in the day it used to serve as a brothel) features grand chandeliers, vintage art and baroque sofas, with a snooker and gaming room to boot.
The family-owned establishment houses the venue’s dining precinct – The Stables Bar & Grill. Here, you’ll find a giant mezzanine loft, a courtyard (which is dog-friendly) bearing its iconic centenary fig tree and wooden bunketts to feast in. The menu, created by British chef Ben Allcock brings out the best of gastro-pub feeds. Heart eats include the handmade gnocchi with roast butternut pumpkin and goats curt and the Guinness Pie.
On the never-ending drinks menu you’ll find a sling of tinnies (VB included if you’re that way inclined), beer on tap, whites, reds, rum, malt and a creative spritz menu to make light of at your next Sunday session.
