Mice Net : December 2008
merivale A unique and stylish multi-million dollar precinct in the heart of the city Justin Hemmes knew he’d shake up Sydney’s hospitality scene when he opened ivy. Hemmes was determined to create something new for Sydney with ivy: a glamorous yet welcoming urban oasis where everyone, from cosy duos through to gatherings of up to 800 guests, would feel totally at home. Ivy has been the talk of the town since it threw open its doors in January 2008. The daring complex, discreetly tucked into a prime George Street location, boasts 18 indoor and outdoor bars, eight restaurants / eateries, a rooftop pool with cabanas, and inviting nooks and crannies. It is also home to a wildly elegant venue of grand proportions in the shape of The Ivy Room. There are function spaces – and then there are function spaces. With the help of some of the best designers around, Hemmes decided to give Sydney the ballroom it’s been waiting for. The result is a stunning 509sqm column-less space with brilliant sight lines and an undeniable ‘wow’ factor. It can seat up to 400 guests or comfortably hold 800 guests for cocktails. The black-and-white décor includes zebra-print carpet, six-metre-high ceilings and six white chandeliers. Sheer floor-to-ceiling fabrics softly frame the room. The Ivy Room comes with its own 63sqm outdoor terrace, foyer, grand staircase and state-of-the-art technology. For more intimate events there’s The Sun Room, a breezy function space that feels like a private conservatory with its white plantation shutters, bamboo and wicker furnishings, and outdoor balcony.
