The Shakey always promotes responsible consumption of alcohol.

The Shakespeare Hotel (affectionately known as “The Shakey” by locals) is a Surry Hills institution. The building has remained practically unchanged since doors were opened in 1879, making it a rare time capsule of old-school pub culture. Inside you’ll find an eclectic mix of locals, some who have been drinking at the Shakey for 50 years. There’s heaps of room, including space for private functions in our beautiful bar upstairs. The food is delicious, the beers are cold and the staff are friendly and always happy to help with whatever you may need. Come and get Shakey with us!

 

We’re famous for our pub food! 
Whether it be steak, a burger or a schnitzel, the Shakey is the only place in Sydney you’ll be able to get a generous feed and a beer for under $20. There is a lot of variation in the menu, with plenty of options for vegetarian folk and carnivores alike. We also have unique chef specials every day for when you’re wanting something a little bit different. The best bit is the bistro remains open throughout the entire day, so you never have to wait to come visit us.

Affectionately known as “The Shakey” by locals, The Shakespeare Hotel is a Surry Hills institution. First opened in 1879, the pub has maintained it’s old-world charm as it continues to serve the best food and drink in town. And now, it’s even more special – with a brand new bar upstairs and beautifully refurbished areas for groups big or small.

 

Everything you love about the Shakey is still here – with added extra. Head upstairs and be taken back. Discover an old-style bar, made from wood and enveloped by the same romantic decor you know and love. Serving cocktails, local Australian wines, local beers and the same hearty pub food, take a seat near a working fireplace, as light glitters off the chandeliers. The experience is both laid-back and memorable, and there is no better place to hold your next function.

Our chef’s have created a delicious array of canapés to suit any event, and our team is dedicated to ensuring your experience is special.

 

We have all the tech stuff covered – TVs, PAs, mics, quality sound systems and USB and HDMI capabilities – plus more. So you can relax and enjoy your night, without a care in the world.
