Darlinghurst offers fresh and lively nightlife among its numerous cafes. It is also a great place to meet friends and just hang about during the day. Darlinghurst is situated in between Oxford and William Streets. 'Little Italy' can be found here, as well, based around Stanley Street.
If pubs are more your scene head South of Darlinghurst to Surry Hills. Its printing warehouses have been transformed into innercity yuppie flats. Surry Hills also hosts a market in Shannon Reserve, Cnr Crown and Foveaux Streets. You can get there from Circular Quay on bus numbers 301, 302, and 303.
