The Bourbon & Beefsteak has been
a popular Kings Cross institution for more than 30 years, and it still attracts everyone
from visiting U.S. sailors and tourists to businesspeople and ravers. The fact that it's
open 24 hours means many people never seem to leave- occasionally you'll find someone
taking a nap in the bathroom. The American-themed restaurant is busy at all hours,
churning out steaks, seafood, salads, Tex-Mex, ribs, seafood specials, and pasta.
Breakfast is served daily from 6 to 11am.
Every night there's live music in
the Piano Bar from 5 to 9pm, followed by a mixture of jazz, Top 40, and rock'n'roll until
5am. A disco downstairs starts at 11pm every night (finishing at 6am), and a larger one
takes off in The Penthouse at the Bourbon bar on Friday and Saturday nights. The music is
geared toward the 18 to 25 crowd of locals and tourists.
