Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point has opened as a neighbourhood-inspired boutique hotel in Australia’s largest city.
The unveiling of the 105-room hotel marks a new chapter in the property’s history thanks to Pro-invest Group’s multi-million-dollar refurbishment inspired by the eclectic Kings Cross neighbourhood that’s been a place for creatives and revellers for nearly a century.
Tucked behind the city’s iconic neon Coca-Cola sign, the new style of boutique hotel will provide curious travellers a front row seat to King Cross’s round the clock culture of hospitality and entertainment.
With a nod to the locales past, present and future as a mecca for musicians, entertainers and artists, guests are welcomed into a theatrical Lobby where a specially curated art collection sets the tone – from NFT dance projections that come alive at night to striking photographic portraits of famous and up-and-coming performance artists that have graced local stages. Guests can even add their own touch to the atmosphere, selecting vintage vinyl records to spin on the lobby’s turntable each evening.
Playful, neighbourhood-inspired elements continue on the guest room floors, with lenticular signage and commissioned artwork paying tribute to the area’s deco architecture and famed cabaret and drag show scene. Sought after city, Sydney Harbour views or distinct neon lit streetscapes provide the outlook from creatively furnished rooms, some offering private outdoor terraces and balconies. While mini bars are generously stocked to help start a night out or kick-start the morning, an all-day in-room breakfast menu is expected to be a popular order. Local designer bathrobes and Biology care amenities add another level of comfort.
Renowned Sydney chef Luke Mangan has also taken up residence in the neighbourhood with his new restaurant and bar, Luc-san. Another part of Pro-invest Group’s revitalisation of the site, this streetside French Izakaya is already a buzzing addition to Potts Point and places Hotel Indigo guests next door to the city’s latest dining hot spot. Hotel guests can also enjoy items from the French-Japanese menu in the comfort of their rooms.
Luke Mangan will also oversee The X Café, a bijoux-sized early morning to late afternoon café nestled in the hotel lobby serving day-break lattes to lunch time bites every day to guests and locals.
Discovering more Potts Point bistros, boutiques and galleries by day and bars, clubs and theatre by night starts right from the hotel’s doorstep on Kings Cross Road, while Sydney’s Botanic Gardens, harbourside and the CBD are all within easy strolling distance.
