It’s safe to say I’ve been going to The Clock Hotel for many years. In fact, my partner and I had our second date there (cue the dreamy, romantic music), so it’s more than cemented itself as one of Surry Hills’ definitive go-to destinations for not only myself but my circle, too. For a long time, locals knew that an arvo at The Clock was all about the upstairs balcony. But hold the phones, creatives, because the downstairs area has had a major revamp and it’s an industrial dream I never want to leave (what balcony?!).
Now I’m never one to complain about a four day weekend, but I was gutted to discover that so many homewares stores were closed (first world problem!). Not that it slowed me down entirely; I just packed a lot into the two days the stores were trading and got to a few bars in-between (all for research, you see).
1 | The Clock Hotel just underwent a killer renovation and I had to go to scope out the new-and-improved decor (it had nothing to do with wanting a wine!). These mind-blowing orange and teal industrial stools – clustered together to make a faux table – were just too good and reminded me of my industrial coffee table. I have an entire tour of the hot and happening new Clock coming up this week!
When it comes to home decorating, I’ve always been a little obsessed with two elements; industrial and colour. So when I stumbled across a piece of furniture that ticked both boxes, well, nobody could really stand in the way of fate!
