The best of Double Bay: Where to eat, drink and shop

The best of Double Bay: Where to eat, drink and shop

Whether you want to shop till you drop at exclusive stores, rub shoulders with the glitterati, sip a cocktail while you soak up Sydney Harbour views or simply relax and enjoy a fabulous meal, Double Bay is the happening place to be.

The best of Double Bay: Where to eat, drink and shop


Double Bay’s dining scene has taken on new life in recent years. One welcome addition has been Matteo, by celebrated chef Orazio D’Elia. Matteo’s alfresco terrace and lively indoor dining area make this Italian eatery the place to see and be seen. For those looking for a more intimate experience, bibo is a dimly lit wine bar with dark interiors and a wine list boasting some 400 bottles. Across New South Head Road you’ll find Little Jean, which offers appealing and inventive brunch options as well as a carefully crafted dinner menu. If breakfast is what you’re after, Indigo is a Double Bay go-to. Its sought-after seating in the middle of Transvaal Avenue gives you the best view of the suburb’s luxury car collection.

There’s no shortage of spots to enjoy a tipple in Double Bay. Stillery at the InterContinental provides an elegant setting to cradle a cocktail or sip on champagne. If you fancy a drink while taking in the views of Sydney Harbour, grab the elevator up to the Rooftop Bar. When you’re done celebrity spotting at the hotel, the bar at 18 Footers allows for more relaxed surroundings while still enjoying the spectacular views across the bay. Royal Oak Hotel and The Golden Sheaf are the best pubs to while away a Sunday afternoon.

Sydney’s eastern suburbs are all about high fashion and Double Bay has an exceptional collection of designers to buy from. Shop for staples from Australian luxury labels Scanlan Theodore and Carla Zampatti, or Italian brands Marni and Weekend Max Mara. Pieces from your favourite local and international designers can be acquired from multi-brand boutiques Belinda, Coco & Lola and Christensen Cophenhagen. Splurge at Cosmopolitan Shoes, which stocks a host of high- end brands from Chloé to Alexander McQueen, or at one of the suburb’s many fine jewellery stores. Diamonds don’t come more dazzling than those found at House of K’dor. And Double Bay mainstay Jan Logan has been bejewelling locals for decades. You’ll find an array of unique and timeless gifts at numerous Double Bay stores. Creed has a boutique on Cross Street and personalised designer apparel can be picked up from The Monogram Mode. Shop for statement homewares at LuMu Interiors, Opsis Designs or Palmer & Penn.
