Darlo Country Club

Trend, trendy, on trend, set the trend…  Whatever way you put it it’s trendy to be on trend and, after all, we’re all about keeping you in the loop with the movements and happenings of Sydney’s colourful F&B scene.  It seems almost every week there is a new hot spot of choice, each one competitively more uber cool than the last.  And whilst trendy in our book does not always equal “worthy”, we’re here to bring you those that are not only trendy, there’s substance behind them too.  Trendy and memorable (for all the right reasons), that’s what WE like to see.
