A weekend in Potts Point : A Locay guide
A weekend in Potts Point: Accommodation, local eats and entertainment : A Locay guide | Locay. Live like a local
While some things may just be too good to be true, this is not the case when it comes to Potts Point. It truly ticks all the boxes, for just about everyone.
The Jensen Potts Point sits right in the beating heart of Potts Point, on buzzing and hip Macleay Street. With a vibrant bar and dining scene, artisan delicatessens, eclectic shopping, this quirky Art Deco neighbourhood will keep you entertained through the day until late into the night.
We recommend heading on over to Cho Cho San, an exquisite interpretation of the Tokyo izakaya created by Jonathan Barthelmess & Max Smith. Choose from traditional dishes, or modern twists on classic Japanese cuisine.
The night does not have to stop there. The Roosevelt on Orwell Street has a tale or two to tell. Inspired by the glamour 1940s and 50s New York, this decadent cocktail bar and restaurant first opened its doors in 1943. From the celebrities to famous underworld bosses back in the heyday of Kings Cross, if the walls could talk they’d sure have some tales to tell. The perfect spot to slip back in time and sip on a martini.
If you are more of an early riser and would prefer a fresher start to your day, then you do not want to miss the Kings Cross Saturday markets. A leisurely 5 minute stroll from the Jensen Potts Point, so no need to grab breakfast first. Best to head down with an empty stomach ready to feast on the bountiful selection of organic goods that are impossible to resist.
After all that indulging, we have the perfect cure. Walk it off with a leisurely stroll down to Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. The walk will take you down through historic Woolloomooloo Wharf and we promise you, the harbour views from Mrs Macquarie’s Chair will take your breath away. Keep going a little further and you’ll be in the Sydney CBD. Makes for a great Sunday walking adventure.
Charisma, culture, and charm is what you can expect during your visit to Potts Point. It may be small but boy it’s packed with some truly incredible beings. You can find the eccentric local’s lingering in cafes, bars, galleries and quite often shopping on Macleay Street. Long lunches come highly recommended.
Still not convinced. Come and see for yourself.
