Crows Nest Hotel in Sydney

A Contemporary Facelift for the Crows Nest

The Crows Nest Hotel is quintessentially North Shore Sydney. Having been around for the past century, the hotel has recently gone through a much deserved $8m facelift. While maintaining some of the charm of the old “Crowie”, the hotel has transformed itself into a modern entertainment complex, boasting a restaurant, VIP lounge, craft beer venue and rooftop terrace.

 

The lower level of the hotel is home to their ‘pub’ and their VIP lounge. The bar area is a homage to the original character of the building, having kept many of the things that gave it such a particular charm in the first place. The lounge area has been created to have a very old-school vibe with the Chesterfield-style couches and low coffee tables.

 

Alongside these is the ‘One Willoughby’, a boutique and craft beer venue within the Crows Nest Hotel which takes a step into the contemporary world. One Willoughby is lined with booths and makes for a relaxed venue to chat and try local and international beers with friends. Overall, ornate features of the historical building have been maintained along with a modern, contemporary scheme inside.

 

The refurbishments of the Crows Nest Hotel haven’t gone unnoticed with the Hotel winning the Best New/Redeveloped Hotel award at the 2016 AHA NSW Awards for Excellence. Winners of other categories are well-reputed restaurants around the state so to be included among these is great recognition of the work completed for the hotel.

A widely-accepted truth for Australians is that you can always get your hands on an ice cold beer no matter what pub you go to. To stray from this would severely damage a pub’s reputation. It was important for the Crows Nest Hotel to ensure that all beverages sold were the perfect temperature. It is because of this expectation that they turned to the reliability of SKOPE’s commercial fridges.

 

To complement the look and feel of the different areas within the hotel, the owners AHL Group, have installed a range of SKOPE fridges including underbench prep and storage fridges for the busy kitchen and SKOPE Backbar fridges for the bar areas.  The sleek look of the SKOPE Backbars have aligned well with the back-lit marble bar and dark wood tables.

"Maintaining consistent refrigeration temperatures in a busy kitchen or bar is a vital factor for any restaurant or bar owner. Not only for maintaining food freshness but to ensure the customer always receives a perfectly chilled beverage. SKOPE fridges are reliable and able to work in hotter and more humid conditions such as a busy kitchen or bar."

-Peter Bennett, SKOPE NSW Regional Sales Manager
