The East Village Hotel, built in 1918 and originally named the Tradesman’s Arms has a spectacular, panoramic view of the Eastside cityscape with the low-rise 1880s terraces of Darlinghurst in the foreground. Feel 100 years of history inside by way of a respectful restoration without pokies. Being only three blocks from the CBD and equidistant between the main drags of Oxford and William Streets, we’re easy to get to.
Come for a drink, some lunch or dinner or host your next successful work lunch, dinner or event or your next social party. Play host and thrill your guests on a choice of four splendid floors.
When Chicago had Al Capone, Sydney had Tilly Devine. This fearsome woman led a highly successful, organised crime outfit profiteering from the prohibition of sale of cocaine by chemists, the prohibition of street prostitution, the criminalisation of off-course race track betting and the introduction of six o’clock closing for public bars. Being in the heart of Tilly’s red-light district and her nemesis Kate Leigh’s sly grog empire, our hotel’s walls witnessed all manner of sordid, violent underworld activity by Razor gangs that spilled out into the streets giving our neighbourhood the dark nickname of Razorhurst.
Today, the East Village Hotel is a gentle place. Perfect for people to enjoy each other’s company in a historical setting, conducive to happy conversation (though you can dance the night away in Former Glory). We offer you a fine selection of Australian and international wines, Australian craft beers and ciders and delicious, great value menus of canapes, banquets and good pub grub seven days a week.
