Darlinghurst bars and food
The streets and hidden laneways of Darlinghurst are a foodie haven, known for quirky bars, diverse range of restaurants and cosy cafes.
Start your day like the locals do, with an espresso from famous Bar Coluzzi on Victoria Street, or go for a big brekkie at Tigerbakers, a bohemian cafe bar with an unpretentious menu. Across the street you’ll find the Tropicana Caffe, where the famous Tropfest film festival began. Here you will find a diverse, no-nonsense menu of salads, sandwiches and pasta. You’ll also be in prime position for Darlinghurst people-watching.
Come dinner time there’s plenty to choose from. Certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, Lucio’s woodfired pizza is some of the best you’ll find in Sydney, with a great wine list of Italian and Australian varietals to boot.
For newer-wave Italian, it’s hard to go past the tiny nook that is Buffalo Dining Club, with its delicious hand-made pastas, fresh antipasti and focus on buffalo mozzarella. Be sure to order the cheesily-delicious ‘Cacio e pepe’, pepper-dusted spaghetti cooked al dente and served from a hollowed-out parmesan wheel.
Darlinghurst is a great place to visit if you’re after a drink.
At Shady Pines Saloon, bar flies can perch on a bar stool, order a whisky on the rocks and soak up the southern, dive-bar atmosphere, and nearby Pocket Bar is a cosy, lounge-filled hole-in-the-wall with a great wine list. Pop in to one of the world’s best bars, Eau-de-Vie for expertly-mixed cocktails and inventive bar food.
Try Love Tilly Devine in a Crown Lane, an icon of the Darlinghurst small bar scene. Named after the infamous Sydney madam Matilda ‘Tilly’ Devine, this rustic little watering hole is all about the wine list and tasting plate menu. Stanley Street’s Hazy Rose is another great whisky-and-wine-driven establishment, with a chic interior and plenty of delicious fried bar snacks on the menu.
As your night draws to a close it's time for a snack to cap off the evening. Swing by Mr Crackles on Oxford Street for a fresh baguette stuffed with crispy skinned, five-spice pork belly and topped with a fragrant Vietnamese salad.
This aptly-named dive fills two gaps in Sydney, one being a vacant premise between Darlinghurst's Victoria Street and Darlinghurst Road, the other a more serious void in Sydney's bar scene – a p...
