Eclectic and overflowing with culture, we couldn’t resist setting up UKO in Newtown. Situated right behind King Street, you’re in the heart of this bustling town.

Newtown has an established arts and foodie scene, the Courthouse Hotel on Australia Street is a local institution, only a 5-minute walk away! Catch local and international gigs at The Vanguard or Enmore Theatre. You’re spoilt for choice with food from Mary’s iconic burger bar to Rising Sun’s ramen — a cafe and bike shop run by ramen-loving bikers. Roasters, smokers, brewers, growers, winemakers and distillers… indie bookshops and thrift shops; in Newtown you’ll never be bored or uninspired.

Meet Monica, your go
to person for all
things Newtown.

Monica’s vision is to create a friendly, helpful and supportive environment at UKO. “I love to dance, and I strongly believe that music is the medicine for your mind and a smile is the medicine for your soul” (Monica). There are many cafes around Stanmore serving up great Colombian coffee! Disclosure — Monica’s Colombian, she perhaps has an unfair advantage on finding the best!

Monica’s warm and welcoming nature means she’s always organising spontaneous events to bring the community together as well as grand Colombian style BBQs!
