The unique, opulent and glamourous decor of The Vanguard is the perfect backdrop for any event. With a 1920’s feel to the interior, The Vanguard’s friendly and unpretentious luxury has an ambience unlike any other. Our aim is to provide patrons with an elegant and stylish restaurant, which provides live entertainment, highlighting some of Newtown and Sydney’s most talented musicians.
With various event spaces over 2 levels, The Vanguard can hold up to 120 people for a seated dinner or up to 150 people for a cocktail event. With menus designed to suit all occasions, Chef Simon Mataafa blends quality produce with an eclectic mix of soul food and modern Australian cooking.

The Vanguard takes pride in its place in the Australian Music Scene. The venue has built a reputation amongst musicians as one of the best rooms to play.
