With its unique sense of style and superb, central location, Surry Hills has become the ideal destination for those looking to experience the vibrant, authentic culture and diverse entertainment offerings available in Sydney.
Be it food, fashion, art or sport, the area is unmatched for choice and quality.
For gastronome, Surry Hills offers everything from inexpensive, quirky eateries to three hat restaurants. Similarly, if it’s a drink you’re after a host of small, intimate bars are a recent addition to the area, complementing the long established larger pubs and clubs.
Surry Hills is also home to a thriving arts scene with small, independent galleries scattered throughout its twisting, terrace lined streets. In addition, it boasts one of Australia’s most iconic artists, Bret Whiteley, whose former studio pays tribute to his artistic legacy.
Crown Street (one block from the Abey) boasts the widest variety of boutique fashion stores in Sydney specialising in vintage and local designs, as well as the favourite Sydney fashion destination for visiting Hollywood stars, Wheels and Doll Baby.
For sports fans, the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium (formerly the Sydney Football Stadium) are within easy walking distance and, with Central Station only a few minutes stroll away, ANZ Stadium is within an easy commute.
Also only a short distance from The Abey you’ll find the Art Gallery of NSW, as well as the attractions of the harbour including the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge and the nearby destinations of Darling Harbour and Chinatown.
