Establishment Hotel

Establishment Hotel

****

You can drink, dine, dance and sleep at the Establishment Hotel, an achingly hip everything-under-one-roof design destination in the heart of Sydney's buzzy business district. The owner's concept is a big, glam food-and-drink emporium with a host of experiences to choose from, each one captivating and unique in its own way, with a luxe, party-tastic atmosphere.

Highlights:

  • Three acclaimed restaurants, three bars and a club

  • Luxe, uber-modern designer looks

  • Starspotting – most hipsters stay here when in town

Smith extra

Free VIP access to Establishment’s lounge bar Hemmesphere, Ivy and Pool Club, and a bottle of sparkling wine

In the know

Also need to know:

Robbie Williams, Outkast and the Scissor Sisters have danced, drunk and slept at this achingly hip destination, and it’s a hang-out for Sydney’s in-crowd. Enter from quiet side street 5 Bridge Lane which gives onto the incense-infused lobby, rather than from George Street, to avoid the walk of shame of wheeling luggage through the bustling Establishment Bar.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

This review of Establishment Hotel in Sydney is taken from our guidebook Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection Australia/New Zealand.

It’s 6am, Sydney time, and Mrs Smith and I have just arrived in the city’s CBD, a little exhausted, despite the generous flat-bed upgrade on our flight from London. We are here on a ‘bleisure’ trip – business mixed with pleasure – starting with the latter at Establishment Hotel. Approaching the giant metal front door, tucked away in a cul de sac, I notice a few weary revelers leaving Establishment’s basement nightclub, Tank. They look about as fresh as we are after

Hotel bar:

The iconic Establishment Bar boasts a striking 42-metre pale marble bar, set in a huge, white-columned room decked out with sleek modern sofas and sinuous dark wood lounge chairs. Next door, the Gin Garden serves tasty gin cocktails, infused with lavender, blood orange and lime, alongside other top tipples. Upstairs repair to hyper-colourful Hemmesphere, an ethnic-glam cocktail bar with Moroccan-inspired low seating and exotic display vitrines. Tank Stream Bar can be accessed via the hotel foyer and offers a warm and cosy environment for an evening tipple. Palmer & Co is a new bar, located below the hotel and based on a 1920s speakeasy. You’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to another era with their prohibition-style cocktails, New York deli snack menu and live jazz music.
