Ron's Upstairs on Redfern Street in Redfern is a kitsch joint decorated with fairy lights, faux grape vines, an entrance that looks like it belongs to an adult book store and a menu of solid hits.

Drinks & Nightlife
My favourite local bars.
Now called Misfits. Excellent bar and restaurant, retro styling, booth seating and a secret room through a bookcase. Stand up comedy on Sunday nights. 'Misfits is your local oasis. A place where suits and Redfern locals come together, where everyone feels comfortable to be who they are. To embrace their inner misfit. Follow the neon lights, mural of 70s icon Twiggy and groovy soundtrack up the staircase to discover a melting pot of locals and visitors, up for a good time.'

Newtown Crawl
Newtown is a diverse, bohemian neighbourhood that bustles with activity day and night. Shoppers head to King Street’s indie bookshops and thrift stores. Hip bars and eateries with multicultural fare cater to locals and University of Sydney students. The Enmore Theatre hosts comedy revues and live music. Restored Victorian buildings and street art, including a mural of Martin Luther King, round out the scene.

Beaches
My favourite beach spots.
My top fave go-to swim spot. Gordons Bay is a secluded oasis, hidden north of Coogee Beach and south of Clovelly Beach. It can only be accessed via the Coastal Walkway and parking is available at either Coogee or Clovelly Beach. The beach itself is not nice, if you're looking for sand this isn't for you - the magic happens out on the rocks on either side, where you can swim directly into crystal clear waters. Lots of young people hanging out having a beer and a chat in the sun, super peaceful, beautiful energy. A great spot for snorkelling. You can take a bus to Coogee and walk up from there. Or just take an uber. I recommend access from Clovelly Beach car park if going by car. Take something to eat and drink, there are no shops.

The sweeping white-sand crescent of Bondi is one of Australia’s most iconic beaches. Reliable waves draw surfers while, nearby, hardy locals swim in the Icebergs ocean pool year-round. Trendy, health-conscious Sydneysiders head to laid-back cafes around Hall Street, while hip backpackers frequent the area's casual pubs. The clifftop Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is a must-do, with its dramatic scenery. You could start in Bondi and finish at Coogee for lunch/dinner, or vice versa. Gordon's Bay is along this walk.
