Recently purchased, this iconic 1930's art deco building, on the corner of Colombo and Bath Streets, holds one of the oldest liquor licenses in the City. Originally located by Cathedral Square in 1867, it moved to its current location in the 1930's as the area become more appealing to its guests for its accessibility and nearby train station. Now some 80 years on, the New City Hotel is about to undergo a strengthening and refurbishment programme to bring it into line with the growing vibe in South Town.
Boutique, flashpacker accommodation on the upper 2 levels with original features will provide high end comforts with local experiences, leveraging off the growing number of innovative businesses moving to the area.
On the ground floor, there are opportunities to revive the inner city Hotel Pub in a modern but authentic environment with captive audiences from nearby offices, apartments and the hotel guests.
The story of New City Hotel continues and is set to become the premium South Town accomodation offering.
