Darlinghurst is a great buzzy neighbourhood full of cafes, bars, boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Sydney. It is close to the city making it the perfect jumping off point for any visitor.

Your neighbouring businesses when staying at this property include: Infinity Sourdough, one of the best bakeries in Sydney, and its right next door!; Tropicana caffe, one of Sydney oldest established eating houses right next door too!; Lotus Pod dress shop; The Passage wine bar (one of our favourites, and its only 10 metres away!); Malabar Indian restaurant; Tiger Baker cafe; Taste Vin French restaurant (we love this place for a wet, cosy afternoon); Spice I Am Thai restaurant; Grill'd burgers; Bar Coluzzi with some of the best coffee in Sydney; Mad Pizza; Danny's pizza (our favourite!); Jeckyll and Hyde bar and restaurant, another one of our regular haunts; Strawberries and Cream French patisserie; Una's for the best schnitzel in town, cheap and cheerful; Victoria Room, a really beautiful space, they do high tea on the weekends; Little Darlin' wine bar, another favourite with us, especially for happy hour. You will not go hungry or thirsty around here!

You should also check out Fish Face in Darlinghurst Rd, Jimmy Liks on Victoria Street, LL Wine and Dine on Llankelly Land and the Gazebo Wine Garden on Elizabeth Bay Road. They are all highly recommended!

And on a sunny day, take a stroll down gorgeous Victoria Street towards Potts Point, take the McElhone Stairs down to Woolloomoolloo and head to the wharf for some of the best dining experiences Sydney has to offer - China Doll (one of our all time favourites), Manta for seafood, Otto for italian and Kingsley's for steak. Bon Appetit!!!
