History

The Vanguard is an intimate, purpose built live music venue and restaurant that plays host to the greats of Australian and international music. 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.

Patrons feel like they have stepped back in time. The talented musicians of Sydney have the opportunity to entertain patrons in the best possible surroundings. A venue such as this will provides the people of Newtown with a special place to eat and drink. The menu includes an eclectic mix of Soul Food and modern Australian cooking.
