Garden State Hotel has a beautiful city Oasis inside. Located an in downtown Melbourne (Victoria, Australia), the Garden State Hotel is a gem. Owned and operated by a hospitality group, this multipurpose bar and hospitality venue opened in 2015 and is housed in a four-story, heritage building transformed by Sand Hill Roads.
The amazing exterior of this former Victorian-era textile mill has been whitewashed while and the original sawtooth roof has been preserved; most other aspects of the 2,000 square meter structure, however, have received drastic makeovers.
The venue is named in honor of the state of Victoria’s century-old title, “The Garden State,” reflects his central design inspiration which Sand Hill Road director comments upon: “We wanted to provide a lush oasis for busy city workers and residents surrounded by the concrete jungle.” Hence, the entire building centers around and radiates off the Beer Garden.
The Rose Garden is a cozy cocktail bar featuring rose printed carpets, crystal chandeliers, antique vases filled with fresh flowers and carved wood mirrors above the bar.
Meanwhile, both the Public Bar and the Garden Grill exist on a whole other décor plane. In both these spaces, although individuality reigns, the common denominator is modern cool, with linear and minimal design elements. Think light wood, brick walls, and chic touches that unmistakably interpret a “citified” version of expansive, yet intimate.
Light filled, with views overlooking both the calming garden below and the bustling city outside. A truly lively place to visit.
