‘Bald Rock’ was originally a suburb of the municipality of Balmain and is still listed as a sub-division electorate area for NSW Government elections. Prior to landfill, the hotel was close to the Bald Rock Wharf which had a direct public ferry link with Circular Quay. The wharf was sold in the late 1960s and has since been integrated into the White Bay Container Terminal.

The name, Bald Rock, is derived from the geographical nature of the surrounding land. Originally there was no vegetation whatsoever and from the water would be seen the outcrop of rocky mound that became known finally as the area — Bald Rock. Our proud little pub was built upon the rock in 1876 and is still in its original structure. It’s believed to be the oldest continuously licensed hotel still operating in the Balmain/Rozelle area and it reminds of a way of life that disappeared a long time ago.

There are no strangers, just friends you haven’t met yet” at the Bald Rock Hotel. This iconic sandstone hotel dating back to 1876 is located in the back streets of Rozelle. With 10 beers on tap, a sundrenched beer garden, popular bistro with daily specials and live entertainment over the weekends, there is always a reason to visit and even more reasons to stay.

Perfect for a lazy afternoon, the beer garden offers smoking and non smoking areas to relax and enjoy a bite to eat while you soak up the sun. For a memorable occasion the terraced garden can be privately reserved according to your specific requirements and can hold 100 people.
