One of the city’s most eclectic neighbourhoods, Newtown has become a go-to destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. On any given night, the streets here are bustling with those seeking hot new restaurants and bars. Burgers at Mary’s (6 Mary Street), fried chicken at Hartsyard (33 Enmore Road) and cheese boards at The Stinking Bishops (5/63-71 Enmore Road) are just some of the foodie finds that make Newtown tick. Bars like Corridor (153a King Street), The Bank (324 King Street) and Earl’s Juke Joint (407 King Street) offer tasty drinks and a chance to unwind. For dessert lovers, Black Star Pastry (277 Australia Street) is a must-visit; among its many moreish treats is a strawberry watermelon cake with rose-scented cream – delicious!
