We headed over to Cargo Bar for a farewell for one of my Swiss friends who was heading back home after 3 months learning English in Australia.


Cargo Bar is located in King Street Wharf in the Sydney CBD. It has a large semi-outdoor area with big tables umbrellas downstairs and a more sophisticated lounge upstairs.

It’s a pretty laid back bar and is popular among people of all ages. I noticed a mix of both professionals who had come to the bar straight from work, and students meeting up with friends during the holidays.

While we were there we also spotted former rugby league player and current coach of the Parramatta Eels, Ricky Stuart enjoying a few beers with some mates.

We all took advantage of the happy hour drinks from 5-7pm ($5 vodka, beer and sparkling) and chilled out at a table by the bar. Eventually we got sick of the loud music (as we were sitting right next to the DJ) and decided to move outside where we could hear eachother a bit better.



MDS and I decided to share two pizzas with a couple of our friends. MDS and I ordered the interestingly-titled “Sausage Fest”- containing chorizo, hot salami, kalamata, and caramelised onions for $23.50. Although this was meant to be a large pizza it actually wasn’t that large. It did have a lot of toppings though and we all really enjoyed it. The tangy olives perfectly complemented the salty chorizo and salami.


Our friends ordered “The Prawn” -containing tiger prawns, baby spinach, roast tomato, and Yarra Valley goat’s cheese, for $25.00. There was a generous serve of prawns and the goat’s cheese, which doesn’t have an overpowering taste, was soft and creamy. I love baby spinach and roast tomato and so I really enjoyed this pizza.


MC ordered Fish & Chips – grilled John Dory fillet, fries, homemade tartare, and a side salad for $19.50. The chips were crunchy and golden and the John Dory was well-cooked generously portioned.


A few of our other friends ordered the Margarita pizza, the the Pumpkin Patch pizza and the Tandoori. All of the dishes were well presented and appetising.

Overall a very enjoyable meal and a great little bar for after work drinks.


Overall I would rate my dining experience (out of 10):

      • Service- n/a
      • Food- 7
      • Ambience- 8
      • Value – 7

  1. Over priced bar with poor services! Just went there ordered 3 jager bomb and male bartender fill the 3 short glass (not the regular pub glass) with only ONE redbull which is not enough to the shot glass to sink in. F tight and charged me $13 each. I’ve asked to fill up more with redbull then he opens up one more redbull to fill up and charged me extra $6. F ridiculous! I wouldn’t recommend any one to go there.


    • Hi Ed! Wow that sounds pretty bad! I haven’t ordered jager bombs there but it does sound quite stingy! A lot of popular Sydney bars are pretty expensive for drinks, I find. We get ripped off compared to the USA and Europe!
