Sydney is expensive. Really expensive. Like 6 USD$ for a glass of wine expensive – and it’s not even a good wine. The salaries are accordingly, true, but also the rent is according to the salaries, so basically you end up where you started: with not enough bucks left to go for a social outing with your mates every couple days – after you fed yourself and treated yourself, your significant other or both of you to a wardrobe full of

You are very mistaken if you think of Happy Hours as a measure that dodgy bars use to lure in clueless
But it is not only alcoholic beverages that you can cheer to at a reduced price – plenty of places offer highly discounted food as well to soak up the extra liquid in your stomach! From the infamous El Camino which has massive margaritas for 7.5$ along with completely free Nachos and 3$ tacos to the 10$ burger- or pizza-deal at the Irish pub next door: If you know where to go, you can almost every day eat like you’re already running that big biz you’re dreaming about – while you’re still paying like you’re on a student budget!

Takeout for dinner
And if you really dont feel social after a long work day and just want to grab something eatable to curl up on the couch with – but preferably without the 15-20$ bill that typically comes with the main dish, I’ve got you covered as well: Look out for food courts and Asian style buffet stalls! They’ll sell all their food at highly discounted rates as soon as lunchtime is over! Curry & Rice for $5 or $ 1,50 Sushi, anyone? Grab & go – and be quick, your faves might be sold out faster than you can make up your mind as to what to order!
