Housed within the iconic Treasury Buildings and built in 1851, InterContinental Sydney is a beautiful historic building of grand proportions. Victorian architectural charm meets modern, sleek design and five-star culinary flair in this luxurious hotel complex. InterContinental Sydney is an exclusive spot built for a distinguished crowd, boasting magnificent views that frame the iconic Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Intimate is not a word usually associated with such vast spaces, but the creative team behind this spectacular venue have designed some extra special spaces that’ll give your event a unique and intimate feel. Wander into a romantically-lit laneway, sip cocktails on a wraparound rooftop terrace or travel to the 31st floor penthouse for luxury dining with uninterrupted views that sweep across the Sydney Harbour.
With true luxury in every detail, the team at InterContinental Sydney are culinary experts who have designed a delectable festive banqueting menu with dishes designed to delight. A sustainable ethos and dedication to quality drive the chefs to produce extravagant seasonal dishes that wow guests with extraordinary flavour combinations.
Today we explore three hidden gems, uncovering secret spaces with the team at this luxury venue.
Nestled between historic sandstone walls on Macquarie Street and hidden away from the bustling CBD, The Laneway is a boutique pop-up marquee space poised for a truly unique dining experience. Cue romantic lighting, festive decorations and bespoke live entertainment and you’re all set for an evening of sophisticated fun.
For an intimate affair, guests are seated on a long communal table in the centre of the laneway, and served a seasonal degustation menu designed by an award-winning team of chefs from 117 Dining. This spectacular restaurant won the 2016 World Luxury Restaurant Awards for Best Luxury Hotel Restaurant and received Two Hats by the esteemed Gault & Millau 2017 culinary guide.
Guests looking for an intimate cocktail event in a unique setting will be surprised by the transformation of this space. The Laneway can be reconfigured to service larger groups with gourmet canapés and premium cocktails.
The warm glow of candles and sparkling fairy lights make this space cosy and inviting, the perfect location for decadent dining amongst close friends or colleagues.
The Supper Club
Floating 32 floors above the glistening harbour, The Supper Club is Sydney’s only venue with an outdoor rooftop terrace spanning 270 degrees, taking in panoramic views of the city below.
This exclusive hidden gem is revealed as the lights of the city go down and the luxurious character of The Supper Club is ignited.
The interconnected rooms are styled with modern, sleek furnishings and colourful lights frame the space with a delicate warm glow. Sip on exceptional Champagne, taste signature cocktails created by world-class mixologists, and wander along the glass balcony as you take in spectacular views of Sydney Harbour below.
A dedicated festive banqueting menu serves guests a selection of unique and enticing canapés such as bluefin tuna sashimi, avocado mousse, lemon oil-infused cucumber and candied walnut crumb and truffled king oyster mushroom arancini ball with tomato jam.
The Harbour Room
Scaled 31 floors above the harbour and adorned with festive details, The Harbour Room has been named the darling of event spaces in this luxurious complex. Floor to ceiling windows stretch the length of the dining room to frame a magnificent view of native flora and fauna in the Royal Botanic Gardens below.
This stylish haven is completely exclusive, giving guests access to private facilities, private live entertainment options and a dedicated team of hospitality staff to service events. Modern gold chandeliers and in-built chaise lounges set the scene for a relaxed evening of dazzling celebration.
Dedicated to quality and committed to providing the highest standard of service, the team at InterContinental Sydney have built a beautiful venue with a special surprise around every corner.
