Known by Sydneysiders as “The Cross”, the area is packed with bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and adult entertainment venues catering to locals and tourists day and night. Immortalised in television shows such as Underbelly: The Golden Mile, the area has gained a somewhat dubious reputation, however, for visitors looking for a good night out, The Cross is an entertaining destination.
Staying at a hotel in Kings Cross will provide guests with a central location to explore the city. Located only a few kilometres east of Sydney CBD, it is perfect for visitors who like to be close to the action. During the day, visitors can wander around the shops or sample any of the international cuisine on offer in the area's many restaurants. By night, Kings Cross becomes a vibrant, buzzing hub of entertainment.
The area is notorious for its rich and chequered history. From a bohemian suburb in the early twentieth century, to an entertainment mecca and red light district by the 1960s, it was associated with organised crime and police corruption. Since the turn of the twenty-first century, redevelopment and refurbishment has brought a more affluent demographic to the area, with new upmarket bars and restaurants attracting a new clientele.
