A retro-inspired dive bar has opened up not far from Kings Cross’ iconic Coca-Cola sign, transforming what was formerly The Old Growler and bringing Sydney the vibrant 80’s-minded Chachi’s. Described as a “fully immersive eighties bar”, the brightly hued watering hole has gone through the dark and grungy space with a serious itch for nostalgia, making use of everything from a Grace Jones mural and polaroid cameras to lego, classic arcade games and rubiks cubes. ...

Across all five-levels of Kings Cross Hotel will be a pop-up showcase of Melbourne kinetic culture, spanning live music, art, food and drink. Fashioned as Melbourne After Dark, the one-off travelling pop-up will land in Sydney to highlight the world’s most livable city (and maybe show us Sydneysiders a thing or two about nightlife) across the final weekend of November before packing up and heading off to Brisbane and Adelaide in December....

It seems the recently reinvigorated Kellet Way in Potts Point is once again picking up as a destination for locals and visitors who are looking food good, quiet restaurants and small bars to help battle the lockout law-induced blues. The small street has already drawn a new life from bars The Powder Keg and Parsons, and now casual Indian restaurant Delhi by the Way is adding to the area’s new look. Located on the corner of Kellet Street and Kellet Way, this Delhi-inspired eatery is leading the charge for new restaurants in the area, and so far things seem to be going quite well for owner Susheel Kumar, locals seemingly magnetised by the relaxed, terrace-style atmosphere with an interior which has been fitted out with a stunning, open design that’s both homely and flashy, as if you’ve just stepped into an eccentric wealthy Maharaja’s Sydney getaway....

Before this month of February comes to a close, famed Sydney hub Kings Cross will be celebrating it’s community with the two-day Kings Cross Festival, staged by the Potts Point Partnership (PPP) for locals and visitors alike.

The area is as vibrant as ever with a strong sense of community and some of the best bars and diners in Sydney, many of which are keen to show just that over the last weekend over February....
