where the old-world charm meets modern

Fortune of War Hotel is not only the oldest pub in Sydney, it’s also an everyday gem in the Rocks, that now has a fantastic addition, Fortune of War Lock up, where the old-world charm meets modern with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Whether you are planning a casual lunch or dinner with friends and family, celebrate a birthday, arranging your best friend’s party or it’s your companies’ budget-boozer, we’ve just the space for you.




Hiding behind the stunning sandstone, our verandah is the perfect spot to see life pass by with comfort. Seat back, sip on your favourite drink and look out because you no only have first and exclusive view of what Sydney’s oldest suburb has to offer but you’ll also be protected from the wet days of winter.



Visitors to 127 didn’t always have such a good time. In the late 1800s this building was a police station in the infamous Little Canton Area. The dining rooms, kitchens and cocktail nooks may look like a place to have a great time now, but they were once holding cells, change rooms, muster rooms and police offices!

Welcome to The Office, one of our favourite rooms. You will be transported back to the 19th century the moment you step in. A room where police meetings were once held, is now the perfect space for an intimate feast with all your friends. Its long marble table is ideal for sharing with different people who could easily become your friends, but it is also ideal for large groups looking for a private experience.



“The room where  suspects were charged”, you better be careful because you could end up going to one of our cells if you misbehave!

The charge room offers low seating space, ideal for you and your friends to enjoy lunch or dinner.



It’s time to pay your sentence, but we do things a little differently here. Comfortable leather booths, cocktails, beers, wines, snacks to share and a very intimate experience is what you will find inside these three rooms that used to hold prisoners in the 19th century. Today, the experience will be very different, and you really don’t want to miss the opportunity to bring your friends here because there is nothing more unique than having a great time in a holding cells.



Let’s get the vibes high with a space that will bring you back into modernity. Open space facing nurse walk, high tables and fairy lights will transport you straight back to the 21st century. This is not only an amazing space for a casual drink or a romantic dinner, it’s a perfect getaway of the noise and the chaos of the city. Don’t miss out!
