Wharf Bar is on the water in Manly.
There is not much to the venue. There is a pretty big indoor space, that probably holds 300-400, then there is outdoor space to sit by the water. It is the same part of Manly that the ferry from Circular Quay arrives.
It is very seasonal. In summer it pumps regularly, even Sunday draws a big crowd. In winter it is much more chill. It stills gets a pretty consistent crowd, especially on Saturday, but is not as manic. It tends to clear out by 11:30-12 on weekends, as the venue closes at 12-1am. The crowd typically migrates to the Steyne which is a 5 minute walk away and is open until 5am.
The crowd are mostly Manly locals. The age can vary. It is meant to attract more of a 25 year old demographic, but in recent times has had plenty on youngens.
