Let the Urban Adventure begin!

Jim’s Greek Tavern (Melbourne)

by Friendly neighbourhood Mediterranean – by Pauline! A night at Jim’s culminates with a plate of wobbly, delicate custard and syrupy pastry deliciousness.  It’s the Galaktoboureko and it will simultaneously be the highlight and lowpoint of your night.  Whilst your head will be lamenting that there is absolutely no way you could fit in any more […]

The Eathouse diner (Sydney)

by Cold Pie, Hot Place! By Dani! Fill the awkward dinner silences by talking about the eclectic surroundings at this hip Redfern diner, which has much more to offer than tacky, but intriguing, decorations like bull’s horns, lucky cats and voodoo masks. by

Four in Hand, Two Hats, One happy Italian (Sydney)

by Four in Hand – By Piero! Gastro pubs are a great English institution, combining the relaxed atmosphere of a cozy watering hole and the joys of refined, often high-end food and wine. Long, delicious boozy gastro pub lunches in West London are some of my most treasured memories from the Big Smoke. My heart filled […]

A Hidden Gem – Juanita’s Bar (Perth)

This is a unique and quaint bar that is way more than meets the eye. Lots of kitsch knick knacks and retro art line the walls and mis-matched tables and chairs are crammed together to make you feel more like you are in the comfort of someone’s home than in a bar.

Euro, you’re on to something – Euro (Brisbane)

by Exposed brickwork, dim lighting and high-ceilings. This mid-fine dining restaurant does set you up on the right note, as long as you can find it! Despite being smack bang in the middle of town you still need to keep your eyes peeled. There is little signage, but if you know where Urbane is on […]

Meet Helen! Perth girl born and bred

Meet Brenna – Sydney’s newest Usher

by The wait is over! Brenna has joined Sydney Urban Usher! “Hi my name is Brenna! A born and bred Sydney girl, after studying and working overseas I returned to call the inner west home, living in Newtown and Enmore, and now getting about in Redfern/Alexandria. I love the ever-changing and diverse nature of this area, […]

Meet Pauline (Melbourne)

“I won’t Usher the latest openings just because they’re the latest openings. I’ll tell you about the absolute standouts I’ve discovered; places you can rely on to experience Melbourne’s unique flair just like the locals do.”
