The pristine Underground venue hosts bands, cinema nights and yoga mornings. The ground floor has a sexy sushi-and-more restaurant that takes comfort food to the next level, a breezy breakfast café and a BBQ shop two doors down. The decadent Sky Bar and roof terrace upstairs is a year-round urban zoo for hip drinkers who like to go wild, and there’s a General Store for gifts and essentials.
And the rooms? Compact, train-like compartments called Crash Pads are the smallest on offer, but are discreetly decked out with all the high-tech features you’ll need (as well as sultry frosted-glass shower stalls). The hotel’s curator frequently changes the art and installations to keep things fresh. Amusing curiosities include an upside-down paddling pool filled with balloons, and an eerily lifelike human head by sculptor Evan Penny.
By mixing modern with golden age glamour, there’s not an inch of dead space throughout. Though gloriously vintage, the look here never gets old.
