Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret

feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
