Stayed at the Cambridge and enjoyed the neighborhood pub, the Porterhouse. Drinks and food were very good and it was a fun atmosphere with all the locals from the area.

This pub was full of people watching a sports game. I loved the cave like brick walls and the atmosphere. We had the daily special which was substantial which was pretty decent.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
