Helm Bar | Sydney DarlingHabour

So, I  organised a birthday lunch a few days prior to getting there. When we got there, there was no booking and they were like "there's no booking on file". So we milled around waiting to be seated. Never min...

Newtown Hotel | Newtown

Mah Local. Its up the road and I remember when it opened and the pub was a mad hive of activity and you could have the music from 2 street away. I rather dig the newtown hotel. Its big, brash, and a good fit fo...

Wandered into the good old carriageworks to scope of ryoki Ikeda's installation (amazing) and spotted this. Various cafes/eateries have resided in this space and this time round, its corner stone. Its a fancy l...

The Botanist | Kirribilli

The botanist was described to me as a small bar in kirribilli but its really more of a diner/pub (gastropub?)- mostly because of how food centric it felt? I guess we did come here to have dinner but the seating...

Rockpool Bar & Grill | Sydney CBD

Its like a temple in here. You'll be in awe. The lofty space, the dark marble and opulence. Its wow. Intimate lighting, professional professional service. So we got invited to a dining+tech showcase by Sony....

Jester Seeds | Newtown

The ghetto charms of Jesterseeds with its destroyed beauty and graffitised walls. Street side sides, unassuming easy manner and friendly staff. You're drinking in a maybe dive. Milk crates. Fancy ...

Hartsyard Enmore

This is a hard review to write because I was having a bit of an off day; prior to getting to Hartsyard; lost my keys so I couldn't get home to get the camera - mate only had a sh*tty iphone 4,  my 4s went flat...

SHADY PINES darlinghurst

256 Crown St Shop 4, not that that address means much. Shady Pines; even if you know where it is, is hard to find; somedays, there's nobody out front and you can't even tell where it is. Most times however, its...

Freda’s Chippendale

Located alongside what I've positioned in my head as the scary blah side of central, Freda sits off in a laneway at 107-109 Regent Street. If it weren't for the colourful hanging lights, that would be one d...

Located at 7 sussex Lane, Shirt Lane is an odd fusion shop, half shirt shop, half cafe during the day, half bar at night. The concept I think works because its located under the huge WESTPAC tower, so they'll g...
