Last night Sydney Social was invited to the exclusive launch of the Ivanhoe Hotel for an exclusive sneak peek inside the local landmark.
For decades, the Ivanhoe has been a bar, restaurant, and nightclub staple on the Manly Corso, and the new transformation is truly impressive.
Lucky guests were able to witness the transformation inside, party on the outside decking, try the new sweet vodka mixers served in funky glasses and sample the mouth-watering pizza, lobster soup, burgers plus other treats off new menu too!
The first floor is inviting with plenty of cosy seating and hosts a decedent staircase. There are open areas tucked away and interesting art ties the space together. The second floor’s spacious veranda is perfect for daytime people watching and an after-hours drink. Dance floor junkies can congregate on the spacious third level dance floor, overlooked by a DJ booth.
Whilst the former Ivanhoe offered a damn fine $10 steak and plenty of locals for a game of pool, the new nautical digs, inventive cocktails and classed-up menu selection will leave you wanting to explore each of the three levels.
According to Bar MD, Grant Collins, the highly anticipated grand re-opening has left Manly locals and Sydneysiders alike, all eager to see how the renovation would take a modern approach to a classic seaside pub.
The iconic hotel, based in Manly has been closed for refurbishment and the official grand opening for the public will be at the end of March!
Next time you find yourself on the Northern Beaches, we highly recommend popping into The Ivanhoe for a bite and a drink.—you won’t be disappointed!
