I popped into Yokozuna for a quick meal before a show and enjoyed a bento box which was fresh and tasty. As I was in a rush, service speed seemed a little too leisurely, but if you have time it's a good spot for a...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
