"My favorite bookshop is a Japanese secondhand bookshop called Hondarake Full of Books in Haymarket. People don’t really know it’s there. The woman who runs it stocks lots of magazines and art books."

Good Chemistry at Ace Hotel

"The cafe in the new Ace Hotel is super nice and they’re super friendly. They have lots of fun magazines in the cafe, and they have a really cool big mural wall painting that changes every quarter."

Golden Age Cinema & Bar

Cinema
80 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills NSW 2010
Golden Age Cinema & Bar

"Golden Age Cinema & Bar in the Paramount House Building is super nice. They show old movies as well as new movies. They also show small arthouse movies, which is quite hard to come by in Sydney."

Restaurant Hubert

French restaurant
15 Bligh St, Sydney NSW 2000
Restaurant Hubert

"Hubert is so beautiful. You walk down a set of spiral stairs and it’s like you walk into a completely different world! It’s like a set; everything is wooden. It has really excellent French food. It’s one of the only times I eat meat – they have a really nice tartare."

Simply Native

"Simply Native is a tiny shop that has traditional Japanese homewares. There’s a nice hole-in-the-wall cafe right next to it too."
