About the venue

Opened in April 2015, Surly’s is an American dive bar and restaurant introducing a very unique offering to Sydney. Located in a two-story Art deco building in Surry Hills, this rock and roll venue has live music, shuffleboards, 3 old school video games, and a vast selection of hand picked Americana memorabilia.
Serving up simple American comfort food using a fire-box smoker imported all the way from Missouri, this is the only place in Sydney that serves a diverse selection of true Southern American BBQ.

What defines the BBQ at Surly’s is that it is brings all of the southern regions distinct styles and flavours together of Texas, Memphis, Carolina and Kansas City into one.

The beer selection is epic and strongly concentrated on backing ‘the little guy’, but also with a nod to some North American dive beers such as Coors & Blue Moon.

Surly’s is a great place to host a party, private event or product launch. Our upstairs level has a stage and is equipped for live music and DJs with a capacity of 80 people. Stay tuned for fun events, such as tap take-overs and Halloween!
