King St Brewhouse Review

Review by Laura House

There’s always that one night a week where you feel like going out and having a few drinks with friends without the craziness and loud pumping music of a nightclub. That one night where you can actually hear one and other speak. Well, tucked away amongst the craziness of Darling Harbour, is the perfect place.

King St Brewhouse, formerly known as James Squires Brewhouse, is one of the best places to go on a night out (I recommend a Thursday or Friday night) with some mates. KSB is one of the last bars you come across on the walk down King St Wharf, so make sure you are not tempted by the many others you pass on your way down… as a regular, I can assure you it’s well worth the wait.

Its laid back layout is one of the first things you will notice when you walk inside (think traditional tavern meets modern day bar). Decked out with beautiful wooden tables outside in the courtyard and sexy leather booths inside, two huge bars and huge plasma screens around every corner, KSB has a really relaxing and chilled out vibe surrounding it.

As it’s décor suggests, KSB is all about specialty beers, sporting beer barrels on the walls and signs with beer facts plastered all over the walls, most notably: “most beer loving men suffer from Cenosillicaphobia (the fear of an empty glass)”.

And that is one thing you don’t need to fear when visiting King St Brewhouse. Boasting beers such as Bluetongue (its house specialty), Bruers, Grolsch, Peroni and Miller, beer-lovers are in for a treat.

However, you don’t have to love beer to enjoy your night here, I sure don’t. With a broad selection of wines and spirits, there is a drink suited to everyone, and everything is very reasonably priced with beers usually sitting at around the $8 mark. I recommend the Dapple Cider, a delicious Cider made from Australian apples.

If you’re looking for something to eat, there is also a very long list of both snacks and main meals. In my opinion you can never go past a generous bowl of wedges or a chicken parmi with a cold drink…perfection.

A delicious, generous range of drinks and catchy live music, the atmosphere of King St Brewhouse is unlike most bars. The crowd is a mixture of groups ranging from teenagers to early 30s- it’s a one stop shop. On a Saturday night it does get pretty crowded though so I recommend you get in early if you plan to spend the night there. The bar line is always quick though and the staff are great so even if it is crowded, you know you will never have to wait to long for a drink.

Overall, I really can’t fault King St Brewhouse. It has given me some really fun nights out and it’s unique style from all the other bars along Darling Harbour truly makes it an ideal experience for all.
