There's no such thing as a quiet night in Paddington. Ever the hub of Sydney's inner eastern nightlife, Paddo has some of the best venues around for a day (or night) out on the town. Just see our recommendations to find out why. To keep that spirit high and give you even more reason to hit up the local hotspots, the venues that makeup PADDO(Collective) are throwing a series of specials and live music events from Wednesday, May 1, to Sunday, May 5.

To give you an idea of what to expect — the sun-soaked Latin American restaurant and bar Tequila Mockingbird is offering a Sunday fiesta with $12 porchetta tacos and $12 margaritas from 12–3pm and a mariachi band from 1–4pm.

Local art gallery Saint Cloche and Mediterranean diner Omeio are teaming up for a Sunset Session from 5.30–7.30pm on Thursday, May 2, with boxes of deli morsels available alongside seating to enjoy BYO bevvies and live music from DJ Jnr Stax and guests.

Through open glass doors we see inside a small art gallery where four young people are browsing art on the walls. The gallery is minimalistic and tasteful.

Simultaneously, at the beloved local bottle-and-bites shop P&V Merchants is Indie Tunes & Indie Wines, with live music hosted in the cosy rear courtyard of the shop. Peruse the shelves for a bottle from indie wineries, then enjoy the tunes from 6–8pm.

Local pub-feed and rotisserie chicken hotspot The Paddington is hosting a celebration of Indian food and culture on Wednesday, May 1. From 6–9pm enjoy an Indian banquet menu and a special offering of Indian live music to enjoy with your food.

This is just a sample of the full program, with more events taking place across Paddington between Wednesday, May 1 and Sunday, May 6. For more details, visit the PADDO(Collective) website.

PADDO(collective) Live Music Week is proudly supported by the NSW Government and Woollahra Municipal Council.
