Sydney nightlife icon, The Abercrombie, is now open. Bigger and better, the multi-level heritage-listed space has undergone an incredible transformation with three venues now under the one roof to create one big party palace. On ground floor is the Abercrombie’s incredible performance and club space, public bar, and beer garden. With a 24-hour license expect the best party crews in Sydney to host events, including House of Mince, Sweat it Out, Future Classic, Purple Sneakers, and Motorik. Upstairs is Casa Rosa, a playful, late-night Italo-disco cocktail lounge and rooftop terrazza with DJs. Head into the adjoining terraces, which expand the footprint of the new Abercrombie, for an aperitivo wine bar and shop, Lil Sis, also open until the early hours.

Solotel bought the venue in 2016, and Solotel Elliot Solomon, CEO says that this new era for the Abercrombie keenly recognises the rich party history while also establishing a new club culture experience for Sydney revellers. Charged with re-designing the mostly heritage-listed interiors are H&E Architects (Barangaroo House, Chiswick Woollahra) and eclectic creative force, Michael Delany (Honkytonks, Piccolo Bar). The centrepiece of the ground floor performance and club space is the sculptural and recessed-lit DJ ‘pyramid’ stage that transitions seamlessly between casual bleacher-style seating in pub mode, dancing podiums in club mode, and can be built out to support larger live performances.
