Magnificent heritage-listed Art Deco architecture will meet modern Australian style when Kimpton Margot Sydney officially opens on 1 February 2022, and in anticipation of the city’s most exciting hotel development of the decade, the hotel is offering a sneak peek into what guests can expect when doors open.
From the grand, Scagliola pillared lobby evoking the spirit of the 1930s to bold patterns, plush furnishings and botanical displays which create a harmonious eclectic inner-city hideaway, Kimpton Margot Sydney shows off at every corner.
Social Hour, where guests come together for daily complimentary drinks between 5-6pm is when Margot really comes alive. The drinks on offer will vary daily – from boutique Australian wines to a Four Pillars G&T, or Kimpton’s signature Margot cocktail. Social Hour could be hosted in the lobby, on the mezzanine surrounded by artworks, at the rooftop bar, by the pool; the team will keep everyone guessing.
Mindfulness and wellness are exemplified by Kimpton’s partnership with Egg of the Universe, where guests are invited to workout, stretch, or do a few vinyasas from the comfort of their room, through a selection of Yoga workouts available on tablet and TV. Yoga mats and accessories are available on request at no charge.
“Forgot it, we’ve got it” – a signature Kimpton Margot promise is what we all wish we had on call! Whether it’s a GHD, blow dryer, dry shampoo, a tie, pocket square, pin, shoe polish – just call down to the lobby and the team will bring it right up.
For the curious-minded, the explorers and wanderers, Kimpton Margot Sydney has a partnership with Lekker bikes and mapped out the best of Sydney on wheels. Guests are free to just some wheels and explore the city streets and nearby Hyde Park at leisure.
Cocooned inside, away from the bustle of Pitt Street, are 172 incredibly spacious deco inspired rooms and suites – most with bathtubs and all with Mr Smith amenities, and feature whimsical wall art from global artists, evoking a worldly cosmopolitan perspective and warmth akin to home. With close to 600 pieces of art adorning the property – spanning 9 levels – the hotel’s signature installation by Tony Twigg is a standout.
Featuring a rooftop swimming pool surrounded by a huge terrace, conference and event spaces that are bathed in natural daylight, as well as public spaces and restaurants that reflect the hallmarks of a future-forward, cosmopolitan establishment, Kimpton Margot has it all, including Luke’s Kitchen, helmed by renowned chef Luke Mangan.
Luke’s Kitchen will be the go-to spot for an a la carte breakfast, casual lunch or fun, dimly lit atmospheric dinner. Cellar By Luke, will highlight a unique wine experience, where guests will dine on daily culinary curations surrounded by walls of Australian and International wines. Also set amid the art-deco elegance of the surrounds will be the hotel’s 1930’s-style The Wilmot Bar, awash with plush velvet lounges and an irresistible cocktail menu.
Located in the heart of Sydney’s “south-side”, just down from the State Theatre and the QVB and close enough to be within walking distance to Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, Kimpton Margot Sydney is in a prime position to access the best retail, art and cultural institutions Sydney calls home.
