The story of Parsons Bar & Kitchen begins in 1929 when the suburbs of Darlinghurst and Woolloomooloo ran riot with bootleg alcohol, illegal drugs and prostitution. Tilly Devine and her razor gang ruled the streets with violence and intimidation and a criminal underworld prospered without impediment.
But from amongst the murky shadows of this brutal scene emerged a figure – more myth than man. People knew him simply as 'Mr. Parsons'. A symbol of hope, a friendly face amongst the chaos of Kellett Street. Always willing to welcome those in search of refuge from the daily struggle.
Today we continue to honour his philosophy.
