For years, Chippendale stayed a secret despite its central Sydney location. Its elusive character could be attributed to its lack of beachfront or its surplus of brick buildings, but mustachioed Sydneysiders are increasingly finding Chippendale's eccentricities enchanting. Crumbling alleyways wind through crooked lanes that lead to refurbished art galleries and outdoor cafe spaces, cheese shops, and community centers. Minutes away from Chinatown and the CBD, it's easy to guess where Chippendale is going—up, up, and away.See 33 places to stay Save this neighborhood
