EDITOR’S NOTE

The City Hub has turned 21. Happy Birthday to us! We happen to believe we live in a damn cool city filled with culture, creativity and fun, and the Best of Sydney is the perfect homage to all the places that make it so. So to celebrate once again, we have compiled a list of our favourite haunts, both on and off the beaten track. Favourite food spots, bars of all sorts, artistic excursions, outstanding shops and Sydney’s best services. So if you believe in life after lock-out, if you can raise your head out of your phone for a moment and swipe right on us, join us in celebrating the very Best of Sydney…you might even find a few hints on the best spots to hunt down those little pocket monsters!
