Not exactly the archetypal Aussie pub (apart from the carpet) 43Below is almost all things to all men (and women). It's sometimes quiet, sometimes very busy. It does a good line in pub food with occasional flashes of inspiration. The service is friendly and down to earth. The beer is cold and there are often good specials on Kilkenny, Guinness and the like. It does private parties but it's also popular with a fine bunch of oldies (one of whom flirted outrageously with my sister and me). Oh, it's not Balthazar or the Greenhouse, but it's honest and unpretentious. And the tall blonde manageress is not to be trifled with!
