They're There - CLOSED

Is it a cafe, a barber, a retail store or a live music venue? It's all of the above.

Where in Sydney can you get a haircut, eat lunch, browse vintage fashion, buy a few records and hear live music, all in one space? The answer is They're There. This mixed business opened on Oxford Street on in late-2020 and describes itself as a "cultural hub".

It's an interesting mish-mash of businesses, so prepare to lose some time exploring everything on offer in here. Start by grabbing a coffee or dairy-free smoothie from Notmilk, then browse through Scratches Records' vinyl collection.

Need a haircut? Out the back of the store, you'll find Brock and Sonny's Barbershop, which is a no appointment, cash only, pay-as-you-feel operation.

Come lunchtime, Reuben & Me serves up tasty reuben and cubano toasties from Monday to Friday, while The Honourable Plate takes over on weekends with mostly vegan Mediterranean street food.

The hub hosts late-night events on the reg, too, including open mic nights and DJ sets. Keep an eye on its Instagram for upcoming happenings.
