The Rose occupies the high-traffic terrain of Cleveland Street at the point where Broadway becomes Newtown. It’s tough country, yet this rose flowers in every department and the human traffic from the nearby Seymour Centre and Sydney University ensure it’s always buzzing. Out back is a beer garden dotted with bench seats and big wooden tables and an open kitchen.The fit-out is just as fun with an ever-changing array or murals outside and ceiling frescoes, stone cherubs and jasmine wrapping the beer garden.
