Given to bawdy Irish jigs in the wee hours, the Mercantile Hotel stands within spitting distance of the southern pylon of the Harbour Bridge.
Built in 1915, this is an old style working pub, with live Irish bands EVERY night. The decor is old, the carpets threadbare. However, the tariffs are reasonable, the food basic but plentiful and the staff helpful and friendly.
