 Pleasure lounge

That's not to suggest that it's anything less than upfront, you understand - just that in a world of increasingl glossy superstores, it's nice that some places don't eschew the sleaze.

Recordstore
255b Crown Street, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010
[Entry on Goulburn Street]


Yep, well, as downloads go the way of the Dodo, CD, Tape, Mini Disc & Wax Cylinder, in the face of streaming (music as utility, you knew it was coming) turns out that Vinyl, with its paltry 100 years of backwards compatibility, is the last man, woman and child standing.

So if, you know, you like to have a relationship with music beyond mere consumption, boy do we have goodies for you. We stock dance, house, techno, dnb, hiphop, rock, indie, dub, reggae, blues, jazz and more. We don't do the usual suspect catalogue trick; we order random and awesome stuff from around the world.

In short, if you know what you want, you can get it anywhere and probably cheaper online. If you don;t know what you want, we are the place for you. Also do turntables, headphones and needles/styli - we are soooo good at finding your needle, even the haystack gave up trying to fight us.

Robin Gibson Gallery
278 Liverpool Street,  Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010

Robin established his Gallery in 1976. After working at the esteemed David Jones Gallery under Robert Haines for a couple of years, he worked for the groundbreaking Bonython Art Gallery from 1967. When Kym Bonython closed the gallery in 1976, Robin decided to open his

Early on in its inception there were exhibitions by many of the top artists of the time including Brett Whiteley, Bryan Westwood, Tim Storrier and Joel Elenberg

In 1982 the gallery was moved from Paddington (44 Gurner Street, which has since been numerous galleries including Eddie Glastra, Ken Done, Sullivan & Strumpf, MiCK and Richard Martin Art) to its current premises in Darlinghurst, in a large Georgian mansion built in 1850. The photograph above of Hilton 278 Liverpool Street Darlinghurst was taken by John Rae who built the house and was well-known for his topographical & natural history watercolours, and his photography which documented Sydney in the 2nd half of the 19th century

The gallery has continued to focus on living Australian artists, both emerging and established, although the gallery has now also gone on to represent a few artists’ estates, artists who were represented by the gallery while they were alive including Clement Meadmore, Oliffe Richmond, Elwyn Lynn and Peter Blayney

Known for its interest in sculpture, the gallery has an annual sculpture survey which predominantly showcases the work of sculptors represented by the gallery, Clement Meadmore, Erwin Fabian, Oliffe Richmond and Terry Stringer

In recent years while continuing to represent established artists the gallery has been increasingly active in working with recent graduates, partly through its annual New Talent exhibition which showcases a selection of artists from various graduate shows including National Art School and the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, and also Monash University in Melbourne and The Royal College of Art in London

Route 66
255 Crown Street, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010


ROUTE 66 is the original mother road that crosses North America, connecting the East to the West. It threads through beautiful grasslands, savage landscapes, leading to sunshine and - for those daring enough - fame and fortune. 

After six months on the road in America’s heartland, the South West & Tex-Mex border, Tina Lowe & Ross Waddington were compelled by the overwhelming inspiration of their journey to begin collecting treasures of Americana for their own store to open in Melbourne. This became the Route 66 we know and love today.
