Over the past four years, Parkhurst has gone through a massive revamp with many cool new places that have popped up. Here's what's new to the hood. 

parkhurst

Parkhurst was developed as a suburb in 1904, but it wasn't until 1938 that a couple of shops sprung up. In the 70s Parkhurst got its first antique store and others followed suit until it was dubbed "antique alley". But it was only in the mid-90s that this lovely little suburb saw its first coffee shop. This opened the floodgates for restaurants, cafes and delis to take over the area.

Shops

From the hair salon, Hair Traffic, to our favourite bookstore, Ricks Books, Parkhurst has something for everyone. There is also an array of small boutique clothing stores for ladies, and fashion houses such as Paul Smith and Desray can be found here.

Eat

Head to Parkhurst hungry and you'll leave stuffed with the best food on the planet. On 4th Avenue you will find restaurants such as Craft (known for their stellar milkshakes), Bottega Cafe (pretty chilled place serving Italian food), and Coobs (owned by one of our favourite bistro chefs, James Diack). Also be sure to check out the pizzas at Jolly Roger - half price Wednesdays and Sundays are the best, even though it gets super packed.

Art And Antiques 

Whether you are looking for that perfect painting to hang above your Bauhaus-inspired couch or wanting to add to your ceramic collection, Parkhurst has all of the above and more. There is a wide range of art galleries and dealers, such as the Cow Artworks and the Art Room, so you will most certainly find the quirk that tickles your fancy hidden somewhere along 4th Avenue.
