By Kim Barnard
17th Jul 2013

You've probably heard the rumours we are expanding our Urban List wings and venturing into Sydney and Melbourne. Well, the rumours are right, and we are so proud to announce that the Sydney site is now live! 

Check her out here... and, if you are so inclined, hop onto the Sydney Facebook and Twitter pages so you can follow along!

To get the scoop on all things TUL Sydney related we caught up with Sydney Content Manager, Jacqui, to chat about what's in store for TUL's southern sister . . .

TUL: The Urban List Sydney has launched! How do you feel?

JT: Excited, relieved, excited, relieved! Haha.

TUL: What is the best part about working at TUL?

JT: Working on a beautiful site, which covers all the things I love – food, art, music, health, fashion . . . a little drinking. Plus working with a great team. 

TUL: Why do you think TUL is an important resource for Sydney-siders?

JT: The Sydney TUL team are born-and-bred locals who LOVE Sydney, seriously. A different perspective never hurts and Sydney could do with some TUL TLC.

TUL: What do you want people to take away from the site in Sydney?

JT: I hope readers are entertained and learn a little more about their bustling city.

TUL: Tell us a bit about you. How did you get here?

JT: I have worked in magazines and television for over ten years in a variety of roles, including as an editor, journalist, and art director. 

TUL: If you were an animal, what would you be? 

JT: A giraffe.

TUL: The last thing you purchased?

JT: Urgh, I splurged on some beautiful Acne boots. Navy ankle boots with electric blue sides.

TUL: Best way to spend $50?

JT: On a book. Or a good meal with friends.

TUL: And the best way to spend $500? 

JT: A little overnight trip somewhere, perhaps the Blue Mountains. The bushwalking is incredible if you are into that kind of thing. 

TUL: 3 great reads? Or musicians/albums you have on high rotation?

JT: Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil by John Berendt (ignore the film but the book is amazing), A Widow For One Year by John Irving, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. 

TUL: The best gift that you have ever received? 

JT: A beautiful, antique greenstone necklace from my friend Cameron. 

TUL: The best gift that you have ever given? 

JT: A rare, antique whiskey decanter with glasses to my friend Cameron. 

TUL: What would you request for your last meal on earth?

JT: An Una's schnitzel with rösti and mushroom sauce – a bit gross I know. Una's schnitzels are enormous, three times the size of your face. 

TUL: What does a typical day look like for you?

JT: Writing, talking, organising, collaborating, writing, coffee. 

TUL: Favourite city… other than Sydney? 

JT: Paris and Barcelona. And desperate to get to Florence. 

TUL: 3 places in Sydney you couldn't live without? 

JT: Rushcutters Park, Parsley Bay, the Harbour in its entirety. Sydney is a very beautiful place. 

TUL: Favourite Sydney coffee spot?

JT: Fratelli Paradiso Potts Point, Tiger Mottle Café Paddington, to be honest I spread myself around—as there are amazing coffee spots in nearly every Sydney suburb. 

TUL: Favourite Sydney restaurant? 

JT: Tough to say, it all depends upon what I am craving. If it is Italian I love Berta in Surry Hills and Fratelli Paradiso in Potts Point. Every cuisine there is a different set of restaurants. 

TUL: Place for a drink? 

JT: Old Growler, 10 William St (Paddington), Shady Pines, The Lord Dudley, Freda's, Baxter Inn, The Four In Hand Hotel, The Norfolk . . . so many . . . 

TUL: Biggest Indulgence? 

JT: Cheese, cheese, cheese. I eat cheddar and goat's cheese every single day.

TUL: Latest Sydney discovery? 

JT: Bondi Beach is not a discovery, but soft-sand running does wonders if you can bear it. And it is an incredible way to start the day. Plus doing laps at Bondi Icebergs is life changing.

TUL: What's next for TUL Sydney?

JT: Sydney is at her best in Spring/Summer and we are all spoilt for choice with amazing things to do. So TUL Sydney will be keeping everyone in the loop and entertained.
