"If you've ever sat in the theatre and thought, 'those actors are just too damn far away', then Griffin is for you." – Concrete Playground
Located in the heart of Kings Cross—in the historic SBW Stables Theatre—Griffin has been dedicated to bringing the best Australian stories to the stage for the better part of four decades.
We're passionate about theatre that's written by Australians, about Australians, for Australians to enjoy. Iconic plays such as The Boys, Holding the Man and The Heartbreak Kid all had their world premieres at Griffin. And many of our nation's most celebrated artists started their professional careers with us – Cate Blanchett, David Wenham, Michael Gow and Louis Nowra to name a few.
Homegrown inspiration. By you, for you.

The gallery focuses on exhibiting artists from Australia, Europe and Asia. There is a wide spectrum from emerging to mid-career and senior artists in DMG's stable. Works by these artists are sought after and in major national and international collections.

Room 10 is hidden down one of Darlinghurst Road's side streets, and there's a good chance you'll walk past it on the first go.
But even though it's nothing more than a tiny opening crammed with tables that flow out onto Llankelly Place, this cosy cafe serves some of the best coffee in the Kings Cross area. Owners Daniel Blackman and Andrew Hardjasudarma have used Mecca since opening in 2010. There's a house blend for milk coffee and a weekly rotating single-origin option for black.
The menu offers all-day breakfast and lunch with many of the usual suspects, but the Brekkie Rice is a local favourite. That's creamed red rice, quinoa, walnuts, pepitas, stewed rhubarb and dukkah. A popular lunch option is the slow-cooked brisket sandwich with slaw, pickles, mustard and a sprinkling of chilli. Penny Fours in Leichhardt supplies the bread.
It's common to see dedicated regulars in conversation out the front. With the uncomplicated menu and an intimate ambience, it's an ideal place to have a casual brunch with a friend, or to shelter from the madness of The Cross.
At Farmhouse everything is kept simple. We offer a five course set menu and you are welcome to dine with us at either 6:30pm or 8:30pm. On Sundays we also do a 2pm lunch.
Half the menu changes every 2 weeks, meaning every 4 weeks it's completely different. We can cater for dietary requirements so please notify us when making a booking.Our wine list is all French and Australian and we are fully licensed, so no BYO unfortunately.
We hope to have you in sometime.
"We are situated in a very cosmopolitan community where people from all walks of life co-exist. We are so proud that our humble little restaurant is also able to flourish amongst everything going on around it. There couldn't be a more perfect space to suit the character of what we are all about" Mike.
Friendly, welcoming and situated in the heart of the diverse and vibrant suburb, the Kings Cross Hotel is as institutional to the Cross as the neon--lit Coke sign it overlooks.
Our long-established Hotel is a venue well known for it's walk-in warmth and casual ease. Locals love us for an impromptu catch-up while Sydney-siders from all over use the multitude of spaces for celebrations and events.
Across six floors, it's a building with many and varied areas; a relaxed pub and outdoor bar, an intimate theatre, atmospheric Bordello room, a pumping club level and rooftop bar. Our second-floor balcony restaurant serves a diverse menu of traditional pub classics combined with modern dishes.
You're probably familiar with our Teapots™, but we're just as proud of the rest of our liquor cabinet. We've an extensive back shelf of spirits and bottled beers from all over the world. These stand alongside a comprehensive, constantly updated wine and cocktail list, plus a great selection of tap beers such as Asahi and Carlsberg. Our new Apothecary Bar has a range of bespoke cocktails that could have popped straight out of a traveler snake-oil salesman's 18th Century medicinal wagon.
Benjamin Franklin famously stated, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." So what the hell are Teapots proof of? Some sort of Super-God?!
