The Move(s)


After 4 great years serving our awesome followers, we are moving Contrabando to two new and improved sites. No-one panic. We have the same crew, we are still going to play Old School Hip-Hop and we will still be slingin' our awesome Tacos, and to make things better, our Little Hunter St venue will have a Wine Bar called Saint Pablo attached on the Ground Floor.

1. 131 Macquarie st, Sydney

Just a 3 minute walk from the original site on the corner of Bent and Bligh street, we will have an outdoor area, private dining room for a group of up to 30, and seating for 165 guests. The entire space has views over the Sydney Botanical Gardens. A "Secure-Parking" station is located under our venue in the basement and we are a 4 minute walk to the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay 

Opening January 2018


2.  Little Hunter Street.

Just a 5 minute walk from the original site, just in the opposite direction!  Here we keep true to our origins and are in a cool Basement space,

Entrance to the new venue will be via Little Hunter Street, and will be accessible from either Hunter St (cnr George St) or Curtain Place (next to Ryan's Bar / Australia Square)

3. Saint Pablo

With our impending move to Little Hunter St, we will be opening Sydney's first Ceviche Bar, Saint Pablo

This will be located directly above the new Contrabando and will be serving an ever-changing menu of Ceviche's and Latin Inspired Street Food to compliment Contrabando.

Of great importance, every Taco Tuesday our $3 Tacos will be available in Saint Pablo without the need for a booking.
