Brown Paper Wine

Brown Paper Wine

Brown Paper Wine is the creation of Richard Powell, his mates call him all sorts of names: Richie, Dick, and many more colourful monikers.  We first met when he supplied wines for a Surry Hills Creative Precinct function we attended a year ago. His passion and joy in introducing people to good wine was evident from the moment he poured us a glass.

Skarfe x Kakawa

Skarfe x Kakawa

We have always wanted to do an event with Skarfe since we stumbled across the tiny, colourful store in it’s original location on Roslyn Terrace. Owner Brad McGlashan - a fellow New Zealander - kicked off his business in the same year as The Sydney Connection began so we always had plenty to talk about on our instore visits.

Style Craft x Toki Italian

Style Craft x Toki Italian

In a past life we worked in the interior design business, selling furniture, ceramics and glassware to interior designers and their clients. When your in an industry you always want to know who your competitors are and what they are up to. So Stylecraft was on our radar and never failed to impress with it’s modern approach and vast showroom on Liverpool Street.

New Players: Dulcie's  Kings Cross

New Players: Dulcie's Kings Cross

1930s Kings Cross Sydney is resurrected through the atmosphere, style, flavours and culture of Dulcie's Kings Cross. The subterranean space was once a popular strip club by the name of Strip a-rama. You can view the old club neon lights in the bathrooms. Named after Sydney’s queen of bohemia, Dulcie Deamer, who was also a novelist, poet, thespian, journalist, founder of the Fellowship of Australian Writers and the first female boxing reporter.

Introducing: House Bistrot

Introducing: House Bistrot

Located on the once notorious Kellett Street, on the Kings Cross side off Darlinghurst Road, this small bistro feels cosy but sophisticated. Owner / Operator Mauro Forgillo - originally from Milan - wore all the hats to get his first restaurant open - from painting the chairs to writing the blackboard. A far cry from the busy & swanky evirons of Rockpool, Merivale and Fratelli Fresh.

Introducing: Bang Tang

Introducing: Bang Tang

Bang Tang is situated mid-way down the lovely tree-lined Victoria Street, opposite the back-packer hostels that are fast reverting to their original residential mansion status, as the gentrification of the area continues. With half of the restaurant floor space dedicated to alfresco dining it’s a very pleasant place to spend a beautiful summers evening in Sydney.

Eastside Sydney Media Famil

Last month's dining walk with various media guests of Eastside Sydney was epic!

We kicked-off at Ovolo Woolloomooloo with a sneak peak behind the scenes and front of house of Trip Advisor's current No 1 hotel in Sydney. Everyone loved the quirky decoration of each rooms - that included bright retro style furniture and the latest in technology - including a voice-activated system of all the rooms functions in the ACDC tribute room. We were lucky to receive a gift of the Biology brand skincare from our hosts, which is included in all the guests bathrooms.
