Lively at night, with fine dining, bars and clubs. You will find plenty of places to eat 24/7, from breakfast to late night and with lots of shopping opportunities during the day. Kings Cross Train Station makes for easy access to the City and Bondi Junction.
Commonly referred to by Sydneysiders as “The Cross” the area has had a somewhat chequered reputation in the past as Sydney’s red light district, but today, it has a lot more than that and continues to attract the many visitors to the area day or night.
International cuisine from Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, India, Lebanon, Italian traditional & gourmet pizzas, Mexican, German, Spain and Turkey. Australian, including bush tucker, the more traditional hearty Australian fare and the more modern.
With that in mind, there is also Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, long known to Sydneysiders for delicious pies. Nearby Darlinghurst also has a good collection of restaurants and places to eat. More about Darlinghurst Sydney.
During the day there are plenty of cafes for coffee and something to eat. There are plenty of fast food outlets open all night as well.
The night sees revellers traversing the streets to the many nightclubs, strip bars and assorted eateries, video arcades and multitudes of entertainment.
Sip cocktails in the newer trendy bars or drink your share of beer in the many upbeat pubs and bars. Dance the night away.
Red Light District: Still, the Cross late at night can be hardcore. There are plenty of venues that are quite upmarket but some where you would be brave to enter and you would need to keep your wits about you.
