When it comes to food and street art, this small inner-west enclave has an addictive presence. Once an off-shoot of neighbouring Newtown, Enmore has come into its own and Sydneysiders are loving it.
Step away from the main drag and find a different Enmore. As much an outdoor art space as it is a quiet urban neighbourhood, Enmore is filled with street art and graffiti – large-scale murals, political slogans, figurative and abstract designs, and the odd bit of tagging adorn the walls and back alleys.
With Newtown, Marrickville and Stanmore as its neighbours, locals have access to all the conveniences of inner-city living, parklands and highly sought-after schools. Combine this with the neighbourhood’s playful edge and funky vibe, and you have one intriguing suburb.
Enmore is a melting pot of ethnicities, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds.
Struggling students, house-sharing 20-somethings and cashed-up professionals mingle with hipsters, young families and a strong gay community. It sounds like a recipe for mayhem, but this eclectic mix works, giving Enmore an enviable authenticity.
Enmore Road is a bustling strip of trendy international-inspired eateries, small bars, vegan haunts, and quick eats venues. There are also kitsch and specialty stores, and the Sly Fox Hotel and the Enmore Theatre are popular music and events spaces.
From Enmore Road to gritty laneways, this neighbourhood has a creative edge. Check out the iconic ‘Jungle’ mural on the corner of Bailey Street and Enmore Road or the abstract work along industrial Wilford Street and Thurnby Lane – the street art and graffiti scene is thriving and the locals wouldn’t have it any other way.
Whether it’s a modern dining space serving up American fare, Turkish mezze served behind a 1950s-style hairdressing salon facade, a historic kitsch cafe, or a ‘secret garden,’ Enmore likes to create a playful atmosphere around its impressive list of venues.
On the boundary of Newtown and Enmore, the Enmore Theatre is an events venue that presents big names (and emerging artists) in comedy, music and dance.
Professionals are paying top dollar for their piece of Enmore, whether it’s a Victorian terrace or a workman’s cottage.
