Sydney is one big city. There’s new things popping up every single week and it can be hard to keep up with what’s hot, what’s not and what to keep secret so it doesn’t get completely ruined.

Lucky for you, we recently teamed up with Jaguar to celebrate the launch of the Jaguar E-PACE by scouring the city for hidden gems and bespoke experiences in the city’s biggest scavenger hunt ever, Jaguar E-PACE City Secrets.

Here are 5 of the best hidden secrets we uncovered in one afternoon alone. You’re welcome.

The Insta-Worthy Apartment Anyone Can Visit...

The TDE Apartment

Last year, our fave monogrammers (hint: the team from The Daily Edited, duh) opened a retail store like no other—guys, they opened The TDE Apartment! Creating the ultimate home, complete with a sitting room, bedroom, his and her ensuite, and a study in Westfield, you’ll want to ‘gram just about everything, from the fresh flowers to the artworks. You can also find every TDE product you could ever dream of and trust us when we say you’ll never want to leave.

The Prohibition Basement Bar That No One Can Ever Find...

Palmer & Co.

It’s surprising how few people have been to Palmer & Co considering it tops just about every one of the best bars in Sydney list. The basement prohibition themed bar might be hard work to hunt down (hot tip: you can find it just off Abercrombie Lane) but once you find it, you’ll never want to leave. Known best for their cocktails, find yourself a dark corner and make your way through the entire list.

The Japanese Masterclass By The Best Chef In The Biz...

Cooking With Yoshiko

Fact: cooking classes are underrated. And, TBH, it’s probably because no one has taken a Japanese masterclass with the one and only, Yoshiko. With experience from the likes of Tetsuya and more, this hilarious leading lady serves up a whole range delicious workshops (from sushi to ramen to gyoza) that will change the way you cook and eat. Get involved here.

The Hotel Bar You Didn’t Know You Could Get Into...

Alibi Bar + Kitchen

If fairy lights are your vibe, you’re going to wish you knew about Alibi Bar + Kitchen at Ovolo Hotel Woolloomooloo before reading this. Complete with indoor trees, pastel pink chairs and all of the fairy lights (seriously, they are everywhere!), this trendy bar is the perfect place to grab cocktails with the girls before a big night out or take a first date. The best part? You don’t have to be a guest to go here.

The Luxe Showroom Stocking Europe’s Most Wanted Designs...

DOMO Designs

If you’re trying to be a real adult, you don’t really want your home looking like it came out of one big flat pack. Enter DOMO Designs, which stocks Europe’s most prestigious and sought-after designs in a chic showroom in Paddington. Ditch your dirty, broken coffee table for sleek round marble one, or add the finishing touch to your living room with a must-have drinks trolley.

Feeling the FOMO? Book yourself in for a test drive of the Jaguar E-PACE SUV. You'll never look back. Trust us.
