Welcome to the iconic dog friendly pub affectionately known as Darlo Bar. Dogs are considered as locals and hence welcome to join you everywhere (also inside the bar)! A second home to the colourful and creative locals of Darlinghurst, this is a true institution.
We don’t ever discriminate or play favourites at Darlo, but we’ve got to admit… we’re dog people. Pups are always welcome and we encourage you to head down for a beer with your four-legged friends! Have a look at some of our locals up on our Pup Wall of Fame by the bar, and stay in the loop with our upcoming pooch parties!
Darlo Bar is an iconic Sydney pub that is embedded in the rich history of Darlinghurst. From the 1880s to the 1920s, The Royal Sovereign Hotel in Darlinghurst was the scene of numerous political speeches. Local council candidates would use the corner pub as a place to meet the electorate, and would speak from the bar or the lace-metal balcony. At some meetings, crowds of 300 people would gather on the street to hear the politicians from the balcony above. The Victorian-era hotel was demolished and soon after, a new, longer and higher hotel was built on its place. Ninety years later, the hotel still stands on the corner of Liverpool Street and Darlinghurst Road – the Darlo Bar as we know it.
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE YOU AND YOUR FURRY FRIEND AT THE DARLO!
