Find boutiques, beats and eats in Paddington's trendy streets

Paddington's cosiest nook Five Ways has a surprising amount of top notch eateries, retailers and creatives for its size. For Sydney Solstice the vibrant area will be celebrating its colourful community with the Five Ways Festival.

Expect treats and beats galore from Five Ways businesses as the streets come alive for a day and night of revelrie. Street food and cocktails that lean in to global flavours will be pumped out of Tequila Mockingbird, Eat Thai, Vino e Cucina, Mr T's, Omeio and more. Renowned chef Phil Wood, who recently announced the opening of his first Sydney restaurant in a Paddington corner terrace, will be joining the festival with a market stall, the Paddo Bake Sale. You'll also get your fill of the local fashion and art scene with shops hosting special activations throughout the fest. Live music and DJs will provide the day-to-night soundtrack and cute as a button paper store Journals will present its inaugural Card Makers’ Market in store.

The festival-within-a-festival takes over on Saturday June 19 from 11am to 8pm. Find out more here.
