Hollywood Quarter

Hollywood Quarter – known as HQ – is a vibrant micro-precinct that packs a punch with a concentration of food, culture and entertainment offerings.

HQ is the Sydney precinct for hospitality and good times. Within a rabbit warren of streets, this enclave exudes irresistible charm. Discover a fusion of culture, creativity and entertainment, where historic architecture meets contemporary allure. From quaint cafés to five-star dining, live music and boutique hotels, the precinct beckons with a unique blend of urban flair and cinematic mystique.

As the sun sets over HQ, the magic continues to unfold. Its allure doesn’t wane with the fading light; it transforms into a captivating night-time destination. The streets come alive with al fresco dining, music and conversation, as locals and visitors converge to savour Hollywood Quarter’s vibrant offerings. From cosy speakeasies to lively pubs, and casual dining to five-star fare, there’s an array of entertainment options. Whether you’re seeking a quiet nook to unwind with a cocktail or a dancefloor with block-rocking beats and a raucous crowd, HQ promises an unforgettable evening. But this hidden slice of Sydney is more than just a night-time escape; it’s a community hub that buzzes day and night, inviting exploration and connection.

The Hollywood Quarter precinct will be bathed in a neon glow until June 15, as the HQ Neon Lyric Trail lights up as part of Vivid Sydney. The curated walk invites you to muse on the words and music that have informed our collective past and touched on the concept of humanity. Twelve venues present their interpretations via song lyrics, which have been transformed into neon.

There will also be live music gigs, performances and special cinema screenings from Wednesday to Sunday each week. With venues offering unique music and dining experiences, participants can explore the precinct, eat, drink and be entertained as they view the Neon Lyric Trail. So make a night of it in the Hollywood Precinct during Vivid Sydney.
