Double Bay, Golden Sheaf Hotel

The Golden Sheaf Hotel is located on New South Head Road in the eastern suburb of Double Bay. This heritage-listed pub was built in 1936 in the art deco style. Its four bars and a rear beer garden were refurbished in 2009.

  2. It is valued at squillions because it is a favoured watering hole of the in-group.

  3. Goodness that is a big lump of pub... it must have attracted a lot of drinkers in its day. Did it have residential facilities as well? Billiard rooms? A ladies lounge?

  4. Hels, like most of these old pubs, the upper levels were used for accommodation. It most likely had a separate Ladies Lounge and possibly billiards rooms, as many did. These days it has four different bars and a bistro.

  13. A Mecca for Eastern suburbs bright young things all posing and preening. Best to visit for first drinks while they are all still asleep!

  14. Excellent details abound, like the sunbursts that sit above the third story windows. A style of a far different era, and without cars on the street (ignoring the motorcycle), it almost looks as if we are in 1936, Nice capture!
