The Carrington Hotel, Bourke Street

Quite a pleasant bar in Surry Hills. I’ve been there from time to time but my “local” is The Shakespeare in Devonshire Street.

There is a much more famous Carrington in the Blue Mountains.

Lord Carrington was the Governor of NSW 1885 – 1890. Apparently he was nicknamed “Champagne Charlie”, so it is only appropriate a pub or two should perpetuate his name.
