In the last few years Scary Canary has been the most popular destination for backpackers looking for a fun night out, and it usually doesn’t matter which day of the week it is. Located just behind Town Hall it is an easily accessible location for any backpacker staying in the city.


What drives so many to pick Scary Canary for their night out is the different themed nights. ‘Wet Wednesday’ is usually the most popular with Huge headline acts, but recently the addition of Fireball Friday's is a fan of the uni students and Backpackers.

This is the best night out I have ever had, Wet Wednesday was a blast with my friends, I met so many great people from all over the world that I am now great friends with, this place helps you discover how good Australia really is, the Hostel has trained Travel staff next door they helped me book my East coast trip with ease, and then the Hostel pre party before we came to Scary's was a great way to meet fellow travelers.

I highly recommend this bar, and I agree, this is the best backpacker bar in Sydney

Lost my passport in here and when I called up, Guy (manager) immediately circulated a message to all of his staff, trying to find it for me. 5 Mins later I get a call to state they've kept my passport in the safe and it will be ready for collection in the bar. Outstanding Customer Service.

Scary Canary was one of the best venues I have ever been to in Sydney. I came during the silent disco on a Tuesday night and it was not disappointing, the headphones allowed me to enjoy the music. Do yourself a favor and show your face.

On the occasion of my husbands birthday, we wanted to dance a bit, we found this club, before entering the security guard checked our ID and gave us a stamp. In the middle of all the youth.. here is us in our forties. I thought we would have 1 drink and we would leave, but to our surprise a lovely young girl (photographer) took our photo and asked if we wanted to dance and so we stayed and danced, there was a great atmosphere. Next time we are in Sydney, We will go dancing there.

Wow, what a gem, food and staff outstanding, great place for kids through the day and by night turning into a night club, fantastic concept, catering for the public and backpackers, cheap meals and quality food, compliments to the chef! Drink price second to none, $7 Canadian club on tap and a variety of beer and wine. The Scary Canary ticks all the boxes, by the way "50c wings" on a Sunday & "$3 Tacos or $15 Taco deal with 2 corona's" on a Saturday is a must visit. To top it off it's 3 mins from Town hall Station.
