A Sydney pub is under fire after a promotion that let “hot girls eat free”.

Petersham Inn has found themselves on the receiving end for what they call a “creative and funny” way to get customers.

The pub’s licensee Bianca McDonald said the goal was to attract women patrons to the American-style sports bar which also has a gentleman’s club,

“The sign was meant to be light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek and to create a spirit of fun for the patrons, as well to bring local women into the pub,” she told the Inner West Courier.

“There are so many boring signs out there, why not have a bit of fun with it all?”

However the promotion has been labelled misogynistic, offensive and appalling.


Despite the backlash Ms McDonald says they’ve only received one formal complaint so far.

Wondering how they decide who is hot? Well according to Ms McDonald it’s all part of the joke.

“After some deliberation (about five seconds) they pass the test and get a free meal with any drink purchase.”
