Tucked away between Newtown, Stanmore and Marrickville, Enmore has long been overshadowed by vibrant King Street up the road. The neighbourly suburb has the same laid-back vibes of its incredibly popular bohemian neighbours, but with a little more room to spread out.
It’s packed with excellent places to eat, whether it’s cake for breakfast at Saga, locally famous gelato at Cow and the Moon or smelly cheese at the Stinking Bishops. And because the area is outside Sydney’s restrictive lockout zone, the party goes on all night after crowds fall out of gigs at Enmore Theatre and into the small bars next door.
During the day, there are vintage and repurposed fashion and antiques stores to browse, crystal shops and record stores to wander through, and plenty of new street art decorating the walls. It’s where the city’s hospo workers come to live, work and play, so you’ll find the best natural wines in the bottle shops, and everyone’s creative and weird – just the way we like it.
