A Hidden Gem – Sub Station Cafe

A Hidden Gem - Sub Station Cafe
I’ve just discovered that converting an electricity sub station into a cafe is a brilliant idea! Electric Substation 152 in Alexandria has been beautifully renovated, given new life and is now Sub-Station Cafe. I can’t believe that it’s taken me 6 months to discover this hidden gem! The owners have transformed the limited space into a fantastic indoor and outdoor area with a gorgeous...

Spotlight on an Inner West business: Sydney Photographic Workshops
There are so many fantastic businesses in the Inner West, many of which I am only just discovering. I thought it would be a great idea to introduce a series on blogs highlighting the creative business men and women of the Inner West in all sorts of fields. What better way to kick off this new idea than focussing on a passion of mine… photography. A couple of weeks ago I was photographing street...

It’s official, I’m addicted to Instagram. I don’t know how to stop! For those who haven’t heard of Instagram it’s a free photo sharing program which was launched in October 2010.

The Inner West is a hub for great food and design. New places are constantly opening and the two newbies on the block are Koskela & Kitchen By Mike! Koskela is an insanely cool design and furniture store, which was originally located in Surry Hills and has now moved to Rosebery and shares a warehouse space with Kitchen By Mike. Food and design under the one roof, as far as I’m concerned... 

The Grounds, Alexandria

The Grounds, Alexandria
I’m a lover of design and the newbie in the industrial landscape of Alexandria, The Grounds, showcases an appreciation of design in every aspect of its construction and presentation. I drove past The Grounds about a month ago and did a double take because it was still under construction but it already looked super cool. Needless to say I couldn’t wait to check it out once the doors had...

Rumour or Fact: Dunlop Slazenger Factory demolished?

Rumour or Fact: Dunlop Slazenger Factory demolished?
Last week a fellow street art enthustiast commented on an old post I wrote about the Dunlop Slazenger Factory which caused me to hit the panic button. They said they had heard the factory had been torn down!!! It is such an amazing space for street artists to experiment with and showcase their styles that I immediatley headed over to see if the rumour was true. I forget (intentionally avoided) telling...
