Potts Pointers Kellett Sprawl

Mural outside Silly Tart

Kellett Street in Potts Point is one of the area’s most colourful streets and from 2pm this Sunday Sydneysiders are invited to hear local historian Warren Fahey give a free talk about its notorious past and partake in a food festival as local venues open their doors for taste samplings and drink specials.

The event termed the Potts Pointers Kellett Sprawl has been organised by the Facebook site Potts Pointers, which with its membership of nearly 3,500 is one of the largest community groups in Sydney.

Once known for its bawdy past of brothels, gambling clubs and illegal drinking establishments the street has undergone a food led revitalisation.

Local venues taking part include Rosé Royal that claims to be the the world’s first rosé wine bar and Honka’s, the new kid on the block.

Silly Tart is looking forward to meeting guests at their rustic garden party and another new kid, House, is making a special effort with a tasting menu that is sure to evoke the memories of Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh, who once used the street to settle their differences.
