Despite what the latest season of Underbelly and Sydney’s tabloids will have you believe Kings Cross is trying to clean up its act. One particular area that has seen a major transformation is Llankelly Place, perhaps Sydney’s first real attempt at creating a Melbourne style laneway.


First out of the blocks to open up a bar and eatery on the revitalised pedestrian mall is LL Wine and Dine – a collaboration between three brothers Matthew, Chris and Tim Barge.

The only underbelly you’re likely to see at this joint these days is of the pork variety -try chef Jingyi Kung’s crispy skin pork belly drizzled with palm sugar & kaffir lime leaf syrup and other contemporary Asian cuisine. Despite this, the venue has a colourful heritage reflective of its Kings Cross location. LL is located in a former 1960’s illegal casino that has served as an adult bookshop and as a stronghold steel room. So beyond its unassuming façade lies quirky and intimate nooks and crannies that still channel that speakeasy vibe.

The drinks selection at LL includes a small selection of Asian lagers, an extensive Australian focused wine list with the odd inclusion from across the ditch and Europe. Cocktails change seasonally with a predilection towards stick drinks laced with lemongrass and lychees.
