Shoe Stores Chatswood, NSWA large adidas store featuring their clothing range and sneakers. This store gets he raffles when the Yeezys are released and surprisingly the line isn't as long as the city store.

When picking up the Yeezys the staff are friendly and jokingly offered to buy them from us because Thye are all clearly fans!

Clothing Retailers Macquarie Park, NSWThey sells great maternity wear here that I wish I knew about earlier. Really affordable prices and nice prints and fabrics. Saw some nice long sleeves tops for winter and was shocked to see that at full price they were only $20! The store was very busy and lots of people where here with kids and prawns so it was quite chaotic. The racks are packed full of clothes making it a little difficult to browse.
Department Stores North Ryde, NSWThey had some real bargains on kids clothes with 'clearance' racks in every aisle. Bought some tshirts for my baby for next summer and it cost $2! Very had to beat when prices are that good. They also had some nice track suit pants which was so cute and kind of a copy of some Seed ones I had seen where the animal print is on the knees and a slit showing an opening acts like the animals mouth. That was half the price of the original seed ones and you really can fault kids clothing here in terms of quality.
Department Stores Macquarie Park, NSWLove this Big W, they had 40% off tommee tippiee eating wear and I bought Jier auction plate for my baby who loves to thrown things on the floor! So hopefully this helps! A staff member was at the front of the entrance to the store handing out easter eggs which was so nice and welcoming! Checkout was easy as there are also self service ones which are pretty easy to use.

Cafes North Ryde, NSWA cafe that is small so you may miss it as you walk towards big w.

Many pieces are stylish and have interesting silhouettes. I saw a pencil skirt I really liked in a pastel coral colour but it just didn't have the stretch in the fabric that I prefer. The staff are immaculately dressed and are fun and youthful, and very eager to help.

Restaurants Sydney, NSWLocated right in the middle of Ivy this place serves a la carte mains of western grill food as well as Thai food. The food is great but unfortunately the service isn't as you would expect from a merivale establishment. Even though we booked it took them 45 minutes to seat us, they didn't get out bill right and they moved our table mid way through our meal to make room for the clubbers. The staff were apologetic and gave us a discount on our meal but I wouldn't recommend eating here on a Friday night if you want to enjoy a nice meal with friends as it is just too noisey and busy.
Pubs & Bars Sydney, NSWA 1930's prohibition feel and vibe with waitresses wearing drop waisted dresses and feathers adorning their hair. The atmosphere is crowded and buzzing with a trendy crowd. There wasn't much room to sit and it was pretty noisey but it was a Friday night with the after work drinks crowd aloud and ready to socialize. You enter from tank stream lane through a little laneway door and walk downstairs. A nice place but not really a place where you can have a conversation.
Restaurants Sydney, NSWNice bar with lots of outdoor seating to enjoy drinks and fresh air. The staff are attentive and friendly but when it starts to rain you need to ensure they put out the awning or things get messy. The profile of customers are suits and corporates so ensure you are used to the set up of quite a well dressed audience.
