Hatches Batches and Dispatches II

The second round up of some of the comings and goings on and around King St Newtown in the last month or so ...

New Openings
  • Kick Lounge has opened on Erskineville Road near the still closed Imperial Hotel
  • Metrobus 30 - Newtown to Enmore, started March 28, garnering surpising support from the Mayor's followers ;)
  • Red Cross vintage boutique opened at 359 King St
  • Old Aboriginal art gallery on Mary Street is for lease

Development Applications
  • Newtown RSL to be replaced by 63 room boutique hotel
  • The Sando applies to maintain extended trading hours
God drinks here

  • Bloodwood in the SMH
  • Iiza in the Tele
  • Corridor in the SMH (cliche alert) and TimeOut
  • Soffrito in the SMH (5.4 on the Mossop cliche scale)

  • Rumour has it that Funky cafe is on the market
  • The Vanguard is for sale; with current owner John Cass looking for a new owner who will maintain the vibe
  • Mickeys (next to Daniel Motsyn) has closed and has been replaced by Wine and Dine, a slightly sterile looking cafe/bar (but welcome nevertheless !)
  • The old Allan's Cakes in Erko will re-open as a dessert bar (pending licence approval)
  • The same owner has plans for a shared plates style bar next door. Finger's crossed ! Take time to do his Erko survery
