I've been in Sydney for 8 weeks and Scary Canary is my favourite bar! The people are so nice and always have something fun going on! Some of my favourite people at are Lina from Finland(Super friendly and the funniest)! Denise is so sweet and always has a smile on her face! Scary canary is a great place to have some fun, eat some good food and awesome place to meet people!

My friend and I were going to the bathroom, however, the management thought that we were actually vomiting in the stall which was incorrect and kicked us out from our event which we paid for. We had only been there for an hour, and to us it seemed like management was stress about how many people were in the venue and therefore decided to take it out on the younger individuals. Whilst we completely understand why they would not want people who are being sick in their venue, the management was completely wrong and was not understanding when we tried to explain we were completely fine and were just using the bathroom. Ultimately, my friends and I will not be retuning to the scary canary as the management was very unpleasant, rude, incorrect and did not listen to us when we tried to explain the situation from our perspective. If you would like to go out, do not come to this venue as the management will try to kick you out just because they cannot manage large crowds and you will be left in the street even if you haven't done anything wrong.

I had a terrible experience there. My friends were at the bar and invited me so I came a bit later. Paid 10 dollars for entrance. Once i entered, me and my friends went to the bar to buy ourselves some drinks. We waited a few minutes at the line for our turn to order. When our turn came, I started taking to the bar tender and she stopped me in the middle of my sentence claiming that I need to sober up (and I didn't drink a single drop of alcohol). I thought I didn't understand what she said to me so I started taking again and she was saying that she won't sell anything to me, to have a cup of water and come back after 10 minutes. I was surprised and didn't understand what was going on. Then suddenly bodyguards came to encounter me to the way outside of the bar. The manager of the bar came, told me that that rude bartender said I was falling asleep on the bar, and being violent to her which was clearly not true and all of my friends were surprised too. I told him I wasn't and the manager didn't believe me or didn't even want to hear what I had to say. Then he told me I cannot get back in to the bar. So I just left.
I was so humiliated and ashamed and angry of the situation. I felt attacked and that it is such an absurd that just because a certain bartender didn't feel like selling me a drink I had to be kicked out in front of everyone and my friends and it wasn't even justified since I didn't drink anything except water at that day!!!
So my recommendation is don't go to this bar.

Visited The Scary Canary on a recent trip to Sydney (16 Feb) and had a fantastic time. The staff were super friendly and the service was excellent. The food was extremely well priced and of absolute top notch quality. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a easy, relaxed and fun night out!

The blonde female bouncer has the most inflated ego and is on an insane power trip. Both times I have been there she was extremely disrespectful to my friends and I. The first time we got kicked out it was due to being "too intoxicated" all because I didn't want to take a shot???? We approached the bouncers after getting kicked out to ask why and before we can even get a word out (we genuinely didn't say anything) they said "get out of here you have an attitude". The second time, my friend was in tears because we believed her phone was stolen. Weirdly, the female bouncer was just holding it in her hand like it was hers, refused to give it back to us, and when she finally did, continued to verbally abuse my friend that had lost her phone (making her cry even more) even though we were so gracious. She then proceeded to kick us out. If I could give this place zero stars I would. The blonde female bouncer has actually got to go she is the worst person I have ever met. Your bar is not nearly fun enough to be doin allllll that. YOURE NOT HER??"???"???"?

Always a nice vibe at this little bar and great value for money. Have come a few times after work and never been disappointed . The new food menu is fantastic too !!
Had a chat with Ray and Ben on the door, they were lovely guys. Nice to see friendly security still exits around Sydney .
Definitely recommend coming here

All around horrible place. No atmosphere. The music is out of date and garbage. The staff are slow with service and when they're not serving a customer they're too busy playing with each other while customers are waiting to be served. This includes the managers.

I can say one nice thing though, most of the food there is decent, aside from the pizza, which is like cardboard.

Just do yourself a favour and avoid this place. There's so many better options in Sydney!

unreasonable manager would not let me and my girlfriends in after seeing us hold a sprite bottle which he thought was a drink. We were sober ready for a friends birthday event in the club which he split up. security was nice but manager had high ego and had to prove his power by being stand offish and pushy - also fashion advice get rid of the skinny jeans they look like they were sprayed on.

*Let me start off by saying I was let into this establishment* The manager Bailey picks and chooses who he wants let into this venue. Discriminatory? That's for the people to decide. A lot of inconsistency out of you Bailey I'm disappointed and expect better. Have a nice life won't see you again mate. (By the way the bouncers Ben, Ferg, and Mo were great dudes keep 'em around.. baileys gotta go though.)

I was there last night & asked one of the bartender if you can do a blue jar with vodka (the blonde girl)but she straight away said No. Then what liquor do you put in, if its not vodka? Fine, I've requested one regular jar ;she add a liqueur no idea what was it and lemonade, blue curacao. How about the redbull on dash? You guys better give training to your staff about your beautiful signature how to do properly.

Nice Bar with good food and beer. Fair prices and a very welcome staff. From 4-6pm it's happy hour.

New security guard on the door always has a smile is greets everyone before scanning their ID. Bar staff look like they are having a good time while they are serving customers. It is a backpacker bar and the internationals know how to have a good time. 5/5 would recommend

Didn't expect much from the already embarrassing reviews but witnessed it first hand. Don't waste your time. Absolutely shambolic security (mainly the 'manager'). Wouldn't let us in. Honesty the worst clubbing experience I've ever had. Would not recommend to anyone trying to have a good night. No logic and completely pathetic. Think they are doing a good job but completely ruining their already very poor reputation.

I've been here twice and both times have been singled out by a bouncer within the bar to go outside and be interviewed by the manager for showing signs of intoxication? The first time I'd had one drink, the second I hadn't even finished my first drink. I asked the bouncer the second time what it was about me and he said he'd been watching me for 10 minutes and I looked spaced out coming back from the bathroom? But I just walked normally back to my group of friends and joined back in the conversation? Starting to wonder if they heard an Irish accent both times and assumed I was drunk. At least I didn't get kicked out when sober, which is what I've seen from some of the other reviews, but it was really unpleasant being brought outside the venue when showing absolutely no signs of intoxication. Also, I've never been reprimanded anywhere else for how I walk/look.

This bar is next to my English school. Wednesdays are very cheap between 4 and 6 pm. But then it goes up to more than double. The place is nice, big, it has pool tables, table soccer.
Good bathrooms and a long bar.
They serve well and the people who visit it are friendly. And if you sign up on their page they give you that free blue drink.

Scaries is the place that everyone talks about. Great staff, impeccable service, trendy events run every night, plus the amazing cheap thrills the bar and bistro offers. All this with great prices! So give them a shout, Trust me you won't regret it.

During the day, great food and laid back pub atmosphere. When night time comes, the dance floor and djs appear, and the best vibes in Sydney join it also. The bar staff are always dancing around enjoying themselves, and the other patrons are typically a unproblematic bunch (rare for a Sydney nightclub).

Couldn't recommend the place more.

I have to many good things to say about this place. The atmosphere is immaculate, the security and bartenders were super nice, and the music was peak. Ive never had a club experience quite like scary's so i think its more than worth your time whether its one stop on a club crawl or for the whole night. 10/10

Fun night out with decent drink specials, it was a shame I was charged full price half the time despite having the wristband for $5 drinks. Staff were friendly enough but if you need to have staff go into the female toilets I suggest employing some women. Men in the female bathrooms is just not it
