A Bohemian inner-west suburb known for its alternative music scene, Newtown is a diverse community offering a multitude of restaurants, art galleries, performance spaces, thrift stores and bars. Home of some of the best live music venues in the city, shows can be found everywhere from the official theatres to the neighbourhood pubs. From its humble beginnings as a neighbourhood primarily known for its many Thai restaurants, Newtown has evolved into a foodie's paradise with a delightful array of highly innovative cuisines from around the world. It is still possible to eat on a budget, but if you crave a more sophisticated menu, Newtown will not disappoint.

On that note their baklava is very delicious as well. Have been back many times and all of their flavours are always to the best standard always delicious .
We stayed at the Urban Hotel in the heart of Newtown and for the price the rooms were great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable clean and tidy with your own bathroom. We were attending Lazybones hotel for some great live music and hadn’t stayed in Newtown before. The Urban really suited our needs we...
