North Sydney

Morning coffee carts and after-5 pubs quench the thirst of North Sydney's office workers.

North Sydney mixes business and pleasure and serves it on the rocks after a productive day in one of its many glistening office towers. Trains steam in and out of North Sydney during the week while collections of cool pubs and takeaway coffee carts amble around this ambitious North Shore neighborhood. North Sydney's pace becomes significantly slower once the weekend begins, so check to see that your favorite wine bar or nouveau eatery is open nights and weekends.
