Single studs in the inner west

18 Jan

The Nag’s Head Hotel
162 St Johns Road

Percentage of surveyed men who were single: 73%

Percentage of surveyed men in a relationship who have single friends: 100%

Meat-o-metre: Connect with men over great conversations which will hopefully lead to dinner dates.

Prime time: Friday and Saturday nights

Crowd: Slightly older crowd of locals who enjoy live music, sport and catching up on neighbourhood news.

Wing-girls: Two or three of your liveliest friends. You’ll either be celebrating with a victorious team or lifting the mood. 

Wears: Give your heels the night off. Don’t overdue it or you’ll stand out in the wrong way.

Top tip: If it’s quiet, head around the corner to the Forest Lodge Hotel where people tend to move on to.

If Glebe was a share-house, this pub would be its lounge room. Local men gather, as they have for years, to relax with mates before a short stumble home. The large, island-style bar is the most popular place to sit, making it easy for you to slide in beside someone and start a conversation. Local sports teams, particularly football and hockey, regularly gather for post-game bonding. If you find some good sorts, suss out where the next game is so you can cheer on the team. Cover bands play on the weekends. Catch someone’s eye by enjoying yourself on the dance floor.
