The owners of Doctor Pong may as well hang a sign at the front door that says, 'Wallflowers need not apply', because this is one of the places to drink in Sydney that is never calm or sedate. A favourite of the twentysomething hipster set, this bar is modelled on two principles: beer pong and frat-party frivolity. The suds are drunk from red plastic keg cups, while bargoers wearing skinny jeans and porkpie hats contort enthusiastically around the bar's centrepiece - a ping-pong table. There's plenty of seating to watch the eager bash out games - on chairs, arcade game stools and even milk crates, which spill outside onto the pavement. Inside, a square bar is surrounded by worn Chesterfield couches, a DJ spinning house tunes and plenty of tables where you can nibble on affordable bar snacks like hand-cut chips and pan-fried scallops. There are cocktails, but we'd stick to the beer.
