The Southern Hemisphere's first-ever Ace Hotel opened in Sydney back in May of last year. As expected, it's offering super-sleek accommodation in the heart of the city, but the Ace also boasts a range of extra-curricular adventures, including dining options like the top-notch lobby bar and Mitch Orr's stunning new restaurant Kiln, and residencies from the likes of Summer Camp and FBi Radio. The latest pop-up to hit the hotel will be an independent record label market in its laneway cafe Good Chemistry.

Put together by Melbourne's Efficient Space, the one-day market will arrive at the cafe from midday until 5pm on Sunday, April 2. On offer will be a range of vinyl, cassettes, books and t-shirts from an array of independent Australian record labels. Getting in on the action will be the likes of Altered States Tapes, Bedroom Suck, Butter Sessions, Efficient Space , Moonshoe, Music In Exile, Pure Space and Research Records.

Sweetening the deal will be a few special items available on the day including one-off releases, early pre-releases and test pressings.

Adding to the atmosphere is a drinks list curated by natty wine specialist Mike Bennie of P&V. Entry is free if you want to come down and get your hands on some rare and exciting music while supporting the little guys of the Australian music industry. You can RSVP at the Ace Hotel website.
