Late Night Eats in Sydney’s Inner City

Sydney’s inner city is brimming with late night eats, it’s just knowing where to go for a delicious feed. We have rounded up some of our favourites, so no matter what night of the week it is, you will be well fed.

Combining three deliciously compatible worlds of Italian food, excellent wine and hip-hop, this Darlinghurst haunt will take food orders until 2:30am. Moreish morsels include lighter options like the snapper crudo or stracciatella with dried tomatoes, nduja, pangrattato and lemon balm, to the delectable hand-cut pappardelle with lamb shoulder ragu. Grazie mille.

Johnny Wong’s Dumpling Bar

If dancing, bowling and a hearty serve of dumplings sounds like the perfect end to your evening you’re in luck. Nestled just below the infamous Lo-Fi bar off Taylor Square, Johnny Wong’s Taiwanese dumplings, pancakes, buns and more are open until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights.

Level 1, 383-387 Bourke Street, Taylor Square Darlinghurst


This award-winning Malaysian restaurant is open until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights, bringing the famished partiers of Sydney all the roti, satay and nasi-goreng their hearts desire. If the fiery heat of Malaysian roti sounds a little risky after those tequilas, but be sure to leave room for the sweet roti desserts.

Low 302

Their kitchen is open until 2am every night of the week (what heroes), so you can amble in with your crew and be confident that a serve of drunk potato fries or an enticingly crispy fried chicken burger awaits you. Their charcuterie boards are also chock-a-block with cured meats, cheese and treats.

You could not find a feed more conveniently located. This pork-laden-haven resides smack bang in the action of Oxford Street. Open until 4:30am on Saturdays you’ll be tempted to order one of everything; from pork rolls, to hot dogs to salads topped with irresistibly crisp crackling, and after eight long hours of dancing you will well and truly deserve it.

155 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst

Golden Century

EVERY Sydneysider worth their salt knows how perfect this institution is, and it would be remiss of us not to include the gem in Sussex Street’s crown. Open until 4am, Golden Century will welcome you into it’s comforting arms, and you’ll depart full of Chinese dim sum and the knowledge that a night that ends at Golden Century is by definition a success.

393-399 Sussex Street, Sydney


If you find yourself roaming the backstreets of Surry Hills before 11:30pm, you’d be doing your tastebuds (but maybe not your arteries) a favour. Stop by Butter to sample their fried chicken offerings (hello Cheezus Sandwich) and a drool-worthy array of sides. Good luck saying no to fried tofu nuggets or the laced-up butter shoestring fries.

6 Hunt Street, Surry Hills

Frankie’s Pizza

Take a short stroll down Hunter Street to the subterranean escape of Frankie’s. With whiskey apples, live music, pinball machines and most importantly, pizza, you can tuck into a few slices of fresh margherita to replenish your energy. Frankie’s will keep serving until 3am on Saturday (*NB: BEWARE the 1:30am lockout*).

50 Hunter Street, Sydney

Barrio Cellar

With a tagline, ‘Everything with Tequila’, it’s hard to go wrong by making a late-night pit stop at Barrio Cellar. The venue closes at 3am (again, watch that 1:30am lockout) and offers an abundance of Mexican treats from tacos, nachos and quesadillas to burgers, burritos and burrito bowls. Olé!

The Basement, 58 Elizabeth Street, Sydney

The Lansdowne

Rock up to this classic Chippendale pub for a filling late night feed and you’ll score a substantial pizza, pasta or burger to get you through to brekky.  Eggplant parma and roast cauliflower are ideal for your vegetarian mates and if you’re lucky, you might just visit on a night the chefs are whipping up an indulgent panzerotti – talk about indulgent eats.

2-6 City Road, Chippendale
