New rooftop bar at the Marlborough Hotel, Newtown

New rooftop bar at the Marlborough Hotel, Newtown
  Sitting loudly and proudly on the corner of King Street and Missenden Road, the Marlborough Hotel and it’s giant neon sign is a symbol that you have well and truly entered King Street. While The Marly has had a grungier former life, a fresh coat of paint, a garden party themed makeover at the back bar and the addition of the Miss Peaches Soul Food Kitchen upstairs has given it a face lift. Last...

Wagaya Tapas Newtown

Wagaya Tapas Newtown
I’m already a regular at Wagaya Tapas in Newtown. The food is awesome,  it’s located in the heart of Newtown and it’s a great option for a cheap meal out! For all the gadget lovers out there (including my partner), the ipad ordering system is fun, fast and convenient and lets you keep track of how much you’re spending. Not waiting for someone to take your order is always a...

Bafcat & Jumbo ‘FUNBOX’ Exhibition

Bafcat & Jumbo 'FUNBOX' Exhibition
I love getting the opportunity to watch talented street artists creating walls for all to enjoy. Lately I have been lucky enough to see Bafcat and Jumbo in action, adding colour and design to walls as only they can. Their individual styles work so well together and it’s great seeing their collaborations being showcased around the Inner West. The great news is Bafcat and Jumbo have an exhibition...

MakMak Macarons joins the Newtown family
Get excited Inner Westies! Newtown is about to be macaron heaven. MakMak Macarons is opening its first retail outlet at 601 King Street, Newtown. On a recent trip down South King Street I noticed the MakMak logo completely covering their front window. I’ve been dying to see inside… knowing all that sweet goodness was behind those closed doors. The good news is we won’t have to wait... 

The Newtown Hotel re-opens this Friday… here’s a sneak peek.

The Newtown Hotel re-opens this Friday... here's a sneak peek.
I was excited to be asked if I’d like to have a ‘sneak peek’ at the Newtown Hotel renovation before the official opening this Friday (19 October)! How could I refuse? The Newtown Hotel is 130 years old so this facelift is long overdue. A significant nip and tuck has done wonders for this iconic Newtown landmark. Some of the highlights of the renovated Newtown Hotel include the reconstruction... 

SMC3 at the Crumpler Store on King Street

SMC3 at the Crumpler Store on King Street
Every time I head to Newtown I love walking past the Crumpler store to see if there’s been a new street art creation on the wall outside the store. On the weekend I noticed the Skulk design had been replaced with a new artwork by street artist SMC3. This is the same artist that painted the fantastic characters on the walls inside the Japanese Restaurant, Kuki Tanuki on Erskineville Road. For... 

King Street Report, May 2012

King Street Report, May 2012
Sadly evidence of the retail downturn continues to hit King Street with more shop closures recently of long standing stores including Books on King and Seduce which coincidentally are next door neighbours and now sit empty. Continuing down this side of King Street, Monster Thread’s previous location has been finally occupied with new tenant Telstra moving in a few months ago. Further south,...
