Top Five Spots to Visit in Sydney

The top five destinations you must visit on your next stop in Sydney, Australia.


Salted Popcorn, Lemon Vodka, Bacon Egg and self-titled Black Velvet, whatever flavour your after, just take your pick. Nestled in the suburbs of central Sydney, owner and founder Orlando Sanpo has just celebrated Black Velvet’s first birthday. Despite being a baby in the area, BV has had a myriad of successes. Its regular customers include Jessica Maulboy, Guy Sebastian and Angelina Jolie when she needs a dozen hand-delivered to her hotel door.  The allure of the Breakfast At Tiffany’s interior look alongside its sugar treats can leave you content in spending your entire afternoon in store. And asides from Orlando’s unique and ambrosial recipes, his vibrant infectious personality will guarantee to have you on a weekly cupcake visit.

Visit Black Velvet 110 Darlinghurst Road, Sydney at or online.
