    Great list mate. Shelbourne has been my after-work local for 12+yrs now, Helm Bar similarly. Shelbourne is great for Thurs/Friday night league but for origin games, PJ Obriens on King/Clarence is a standout for mine - always rammed with great atmosphere but the barstaff know how to keep the punters hydrated without queuing for ages, unlike a lot of places..

    Ettalong Hotel is usually pretty suppportive of rugby league. Put the sound on when the Knights were about to run on on Saturday. Food is pretty good, beer is nice and cold. Pretty friendly, but there 1 idiot who's always screaming at the races but I think he's friends with the owner..

    Maaaate....
    Kiwi Pub’s in Sukhumvit Soi 8, unless there’s another I haven’t seen in Soi 28.

    They’ve just moved into Soi 8/1. Smaller place. Hard to get a seat, and probably increasing the density of kiwis...

    I’d be inclined to put the Aussie Pub Soi 11 down my list a bit. It’s run by a Pom, and usually full of Broadmeadows’ finest getting their fill of whatever that garbage is. Not too bad for SOO or GF.

    Jeepers, why did I type 28.... thanks for pointing that out, have edited.

    I went to the Kiwi on Saturday to watch the warriors sea eagles game and was shocked to see a pile of rubble with the Kiwi sign in the middle of it...took me awhile to work out there was a new Kiwi on 8/1. Doesn't smell like old men's sweaty ball sacs yet, but only a matter of time I guess.

    And yeah all the tables were reserved... all blacks test was on straightafter tho. Not sure which is worse too many kiwis or too may aussies.

    struggling with venues over the last two months in NYC. I had to suck it up and buy a finals pass the other day. most games starting in the 2-5am range doesn't help much.

    Most of the Hollywood memorabilia has been removed / sold off
    It used to be fairly standard Planet Hollywood stuff
