Diamont Hotel, Sydney, Australia

Diamont Hotel

King’s Cross has for a long time been known to most Australians as the red light capital of Australia. Most Australians who have visited Sydney at one time or another have wandered through the Cross, if only for a look at how the “other half” live and play. In recent years, however, this colorful pocket of Sydney has started to evolve, albeit ever so slowly, into a richly vibrant part of the city. The strip clubs, topless waitresses, adult bookshops, and nightclubs are still there, but small, trendy cafes have sprung up on the fringes of the Cross that are attracting a different type of visitor. The Cross is most vibrant at night, when the bright lights come on and the action heats up. During the day it can look a lot less appealing.

Rooftop Terrace At Night

Once known for its music halls and grand theatres, it was rapidly transformed after World War II by the influx of troops returning and visiting from the nearby Garden Island naval base. Today, it is dominated by bars, restaurants, nightclubs, strip clubs, and adult bookstores. Since the turn of the century Kings Cross has witnessed a large number of real estate developments, both refurbishments of historic apartment buildings and the construction of new ones. This has resulted in demographic changes as affluent professionals are increasingly residing in the area and are in turn significantly altering the character of the area. A number of upmarket bars, such as Trademark Hotel, now attract a changing clientele to the area.

Located in the heart of the Darlinghurst, Kings Cross, and Potts Point triangle, the Diamant Hotel offers a sensual décor, generous proportions, and the latest in-room luxury amenities. Only a ten minute stroll to Sydney’s Town Hall, Financial District, Oxford St shopping, and the Woolloomooloo Wharf and short drive to Bondi Beach and the International airport, the Diamant’s elegant design and world class views are matched only by good service and incomparable value.

King’s Cross Local Attractions:

  • The El Alamein Fountain is at the entrance to the Fitzroy Gardens on the corner of Darlingurst Road and Macleay Street was commissioned as a memorial to soldiers who died in 1942 during World War II in two battles at El Alamein, Egypt. It was designed in 1961 by the New Zealand-born architect Robert Woodward. Its dandelion design, which has since been copied for fountains around the world, was Woodward’s original design.
  • The Coca-Cola sign.
  • The Fire Station at the intersection of Darlinghurst Road and Victoria Street was designed by the Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon, and built from 1910-12. It is an example of the Federation Free Style and is now listed on the Register of the National Estate. Kings Cross railway station is an underground railway station on the Eastern Suburbs Line of the CityRail network.
  • The Les Girls building, now known as the Empire Hotel, stood prominently on the corner of Darlinghurst Road and Roslyn Street, in the heart of the Cross. From 1963 until 1993 the building was home to the legendary Les Girls “drag queen” show, starring Carlotta. Throughout the 1990s the building, still retaining its original 1960s features, became the home to alternative cabaret, including the much loved Sunday night club The Tender Trap.
  • Risque Boutique Adult Shop, also known as “Risqué” is one of the most famous adult shops on Darlinghurst Road.
  • Previously called Ricco’s, a small leather shop, Risque Boutique has now become a famous upmarket store on 2 floors since it was renovated in 2003. This adult shop has a huge collection of adult toys from all around the world and is also a popular landmark for strippers and dancers to find accessories, shoes, lingerie and costumes.
