Don you finest thrift-store finds and ride the bike you built yourself in Newtown and Enmore, Sydney's shabbiest, chicest bohemian outpost in the city's inner west suburbs. Go alternative, go underground, go vegan, vegetarian, and less-meatatarian at one of Newtown and Enmore's 600 cafes, galleries, theatres, boutiques, and petite venues. When the long night eventually comes to a close, wander your way back through dewy park spaces to well-worn and well-loved terrace homes and converted warehouses.See 90 places to stay Save this neighborhood
