Where do students hang out?
Check out King Street in Newtown as there are a stack of great bars, restaurants, galleries and a few live music venues. There are heaps of cool shops to check out; Newtown has a bit of a hippy/alternative vibe to it so worth a look.
Glebe is another area really close by that has a similar vibe, check out Glebe Point road for a stack of great cafes and restaurants and a few hidden bars that are great fun. Another great area to check out would be Surry Hills/Darlinghurst which is about 15mins from the centre.
