The Sydney Connection conducts weekly inner-city dining tours of Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Potts Point.
Accompanied by our owner/operator Maree Sheehan, a well-connected local guide, our walks are aimed at visitors and Sydneysiders who want to go ‘where the locals go’ for inspiring food, good service and cool interiors.
We offer our guests the chance to experience Sydney's fabulous small bar culture and dine at three or four different inner-city Sydney restaurants in one evening. If you're a local looking for a new perspective on our fine city this is the perfect experience.
For visitors, it's a great opportunity if you are only spending a short time in Sydney and want to gain an understanding of our food culture and nighttime vibe. You can also ask your guide all your Sydney questions: our history, the demographics of the precinct, the latest real estate prices or just where to go for breakfast.
We begin our dining tour in Surry Hills in the industrial interior of a gin distillery with its own bar. Positioned on a tree-lined street edged by cycle paths next to the latest in modern architecture juxtaposed by grand Victorian terraces dressed in filigree and greenery. With cuisines from Italy, France and the Middle East we are spoiled for choice in this part of inner-city Sydney.
The main streets of this precinct are a mix of commercial and residential buildings. Elegant restored pubs stand next to on-trend cafes with street seating and restaurants with secret lush courtyards hidden out the back. Favoured by professional creatives and locals for breakfast, lunch and dinner there is always a new special or cocktail to discover.
There’s a relaxed vibe with fabulous fashion and interior store windows competing for our eye as we stroll down Crown Street taking in the scene.
