arrow_back Back to Parramatta


Parramatta and Sydney had a thriving pub, bar and club scene, with everything from ‘secret’ laneway bars to local institutions.
Any Sydneysider will tell you however things have changed in the last few years.
In 2014, the State Government brought in a raft of late-night trading restrictions, collectively known as the lockout laws.
If you’re out past 2 am, don’t expect to get into most places and the latest most places allowed to go to is 3.30am.
The trick now is knowing where the Nightcruisers can take you during your celebration, Pub, Club and Bar Crawl or Party to Nightlife transport in and around Sydney.

The Cellar taproom is a meeting place more than anything else, a spot for conversation and armchair adventure while sharing great craft beer with friends.

Hidden down a Camperdown laneway, The Cellar is housed deep inside the roots of the former winery that occupied the site nearly a century ago. The wax-lined wine vats have been converted to rooms, retaining the red-wine soaked walls. The upcycled beer keg lamps hang from the ceiling, casting a warm glow and giving an underground, speak-easy feel to the covert laneway.
