Gilt Lounge & Gowings Bar at QT Hotel


‘It’s all theatre around here’, welcome to Sydney’s hottest hotel on the block – QT Sydney.  Adjacent to the State theatre in the former Gowings department store, the hotel has moulded history and glamour for a bespoke retro luxury experience. Upon entering, the staff are more attentive than paparazzi, oozing sex appeal and downtown cool. Mysterious lighting reveals walls of stacked vintage suitcases and plush future retro furniture leads to Gowings Bar & Grill. The main bar boasts an intense colour of coordinated spirits overhanging the rectangle bar. Get distracted by the contrasting plasma screens playing soothing digital art and black and white films, while you sip down a Sweet Lady made with Grey Goose, lemon balm, fresh lime, sugar, egg white and mint bitters.

Head upstairs to cocktail heaven AKA The Gilt Lounge - Sydney’s ultimate New York style lounge bar. A sleek inner city crowd test the likes of the Vanilla Passion Fruit Pisco Sour, made with passion fruit infused Santiago Queirolo pisco, fresh lime, vanilla essence, sugar, egg white and Boston bitters, whilst snacking on items such as Bringing Back the Vol-au-vent and bite side sliders.

Tonic water and ginger beer are all made in house, not to mention BarChick’s favourite bacon Infused bourbon and their Bloody Mary menu on the weekends.

QT Sydney’s cutting edge design, eccentric interior and impressive cocktail list shows just how much Sydney is stepping it up and with Topshop set to open downstairs in October, this hotel will continue to be a mover and shaker.
