Any venue describing itself as ‘Sports Central’ has some serious claims to fulfill in sports-mad Sydney. But with live action plastered across 40 screens (including 3D TV) and a series of projectors, Jacksons on George gets full marks for being a prime sporting hub. With a schooner in hand and a beef burger with the lot on its way, avid sports enthusiasts can settle in comfortably for a spot of athletic entertainment, or scream fervently at the Bledisloe from across the room. Sports’ tragics can revel in everything from Sunday matches to one-off sporting extravaganzas in the Bottom of the Harbour Bar. Jacksons even fronts sneaky views of the Harbour Bridge to push that team patriotism just an inch further. (Bridie Connellan) 176 George Street Sydney www.jacksonsongeorge.com.au
