Time Out says
When it opened in 1892 the Strand Arcade was regarded as the very latest in shopping-centre architecture. Wedged between George and Pitt Streets, the narrow, multi-level thoroughfare houses premium Australian fashion designers, including Jac+ Jack, Lover, Sass & Bide and Sydney darling Dion Lee’s first flagship store. There’s top-notch personal shopping from the staff at the Corner Shop. Plus, vibrant and distinctive jewellery from Dinosaur Designs, natural beauty products at Aesop, a dapper hat collection at Strand Hatters, handmade brogues from Andrew McDonald and stylish clogs from Nordic fashion boutique Funkis. And the Arcade itself is very beautiful and well-worth a visit.
