On Monday this week Broadsheet unveiled some updates to the website, some design refinements and improved functionality. We’re always looking to update and improve the website and what we are doing, so these adjustments to the interface will make the Broadsheet online experience even better for you.

The most significant change has been the redesign of the Broadsheet Sydney Directory, which we’ve re-launched with our partners Ketel One, as part of The Modern Craft Project.

The directory has long been the backbone of Broadsheet, and we've worked hard to maintain the most comprehensive and up to date directory of Sydney's best cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. On Broadsheet Sydney there are now over 500 profiles, covering a diverse range of venues across a vast spread of the city.

The directory relaunch includes improved accessibility, speed and functionality. You can view locations on map to make the visual communication of location more clear, and because we know that many of you are constantly looking to try new things, you can browse by newly opened venues. We’ve made it easier to find that new place you read about, but can't remember the name of. There are also our Top Picks, which highlight what the Broadsheet editorial team strongly suggests you don't miss.

Basically we’ve made the directory more straightforward to choose a venue, depending on whether you're looking for somewhere to eat outside, to take a date, that’s open late, or somewhere you can make a reservation.

Ultimately though, we’ve been sure to maintain our strong design focus, with the ability to access our content even more efficiently, made possible by our presenting partners Ketel One. So don’t go out without consulting the Broadsheet directory.
