Just east of the Sydney Central Business District, you will arrive at Darlinghurst, a densely populated inner-city suburb. There’s so much going, it’s a marvel that Darlinghurst is just under one square kilometre! Oxford Street is the heart of the area, and this is where you can find so many delightful shops, cafes, and restaurants in Darlinghurst.
As you go east on Oxford Street, there are even more bar and pub offerings as a part of Darlinghurst, and if you’re lucky enough to be in the area for March, look out for the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade, which is sure to be a delight and spectacle!
If you want to venture a little bit away from the main road, go down to Crown Street, Burton Street, or Liverpool Street, which all have trendy boutiques and fabulous cafes that you wouldn’t find anywhere else besides Darlinghurst.
And if you’re trying to save your cents while shopping, don’t fear, as there are so many second-hand clothing shops where you can find the perfect, unique find that sets you apart from everyone else.
However, the real time to experience the beauty and character of Darlinghurst is to go at night! Clubs, pubs, and venues with music all come alive during this time. Don’t forget to check out places that are hidden away, for they may reveal the best treasures. Love, Tilly Devine is a bar that is located on Crown Lane, and has the atmosphere of an old-fashioned speakeasy.
Bars in Darlinghurst will always offer you a unique experience, including Coco Cubano which will make sure that you taste a bit of Cuba thousands of kilometres away. And if you stay out late in Darlinghurst, don’t worry about not being able to go home late at night! Buses run from early in the morning until very late, ensuring that your great experience doesn’t end when it’s time to go home.
