CHIPPENDALE

CHIPPENDALE At A Glance

No longer content to be sitting on the sidelines, Chippendale has been busy redefining itself as a creative arts precinct with working-class roots and real grit. Chippendale is full of contrasts in terms of the architectural landscape as well as the locals who call this funky inner-city suburb home.

The creative arts, bike-friendly streets and being on the doorstep of Sydney CBD and the university scene.

Local Tips

Spice Alley’s hawker style eateries are tucked away on Kensington Street and The Old Clare Hotel has fine dining, bars and cool accommodation.

Fun Fact

Lifestyle

An inner-city neighbourhood that is on the cusp of something big, Chippendale is rapidly evolving from its working-class roots into one of Sydney’s top creative arts precincts, and there are no signs of slowing down.

Lifestyle

Once the local stomping ground of brewery and factory workers, creatives are moving in and transforming warehouses, terraces and workmen’s cottages into art spaces, funky tea houses and cafés. Surrounded by bold street art and tag-ridden back laneways, Chippendale is a living canvas.

As a result of its jaw-dropping refurbishment, Kensington Street has become one of the hottest addresses on the arts scene. The old Clare Hotel’s heritage-listed buildings have been transformed into an edgy boutique hotel that’s surrounded by fine restaurants and galleries. A few blocks over on Abercrombie Street the word brunch takes on a new meaning at a line-up of cafés. The major renewal project, Central Park, has added much-needed green space at Chippendale Green.

The University of Technology Sydney, the University of Sydney and the Broadway campus of the University of Notre Dame are all within walking distance, as are Central Train Station, the light rail and major bus routes. Locals tend to ditch the car and walk or cycle their way around. 

Although small in size, Chippendale has striking contrasts – beautiful terraces that line neighbourly streets to the high-rise apartments sprouting up on Chippendale’s eastern boundary. It’s an eclectic and vibrant neighbourhood which caters for students, professionals and a burgeoning artistic community.
