Welcome to the Royal Sovereign Hotel (don’t worry, most people don’t know that’s our birth name either), affectionately known as Darlo Bar. Step inside a world where the retro furniture is almost as eclectic as the locals. A second home to the colourful and creative locals of Darlinghurst, this is a true institution. Immerse yourself in decades gone by and enjoy the ride with craft and local beers, as well as a solid back bar, with something going on every night.
Upstairs we’re talking a vertical garden rooftop bar, where plants climb the walls and a good time calls.
Unique pub room accommodation upstairs continues the Darlo Bar vibe, and offers cool, affordable accommodation in the heart of Darlinghurst - just moments walk from Oxford Street and Kings Cross.
Like a lounge room inhabited by bass players and bloggers, painters and publishers. A local favourite filled with characters with a story to tell and advice to give. Enjoy a day time drink listening to Johnny Cash or Lou Reed and before the sun sets and you’re tuned to funk, soul, disco, new wave and some lightly sprinkled R&B favourites. With live DJs spinning vinyl, record fairs, dog days, 'House parties' and art shows, Darlo is keeping the bohemian spirit of the area at it's core.
BRING YOUR MATES, BRING YOUR DOGS,
WE'LL BRING THE GOOD TIMES
