Rising from the ashes, City Road fixture THE LANSDOWNE HOTEL is reopening, relaunching and returning its sorely missed presence to Sydney’s live music scene, with renewed adventures and an 80s New York loft style ambience. Having bred some of the biggest and best bands in the country, THE LANSDOWNE is marking this historic revival with an official relaunch on FRIDAY OCTOBER 18, featuring live music, awesome food and an experience that will usher in new kinds of LANSDOWNE thrills for all!
The relaunch will take place over three levels of multi-layered fun and good times. Seminal merrymakers and carousing cads GAY PARIS will be loaning their growling, whisky-soaked predisposition to putting on the best damn live show in the country to the LANSDOWNE relaunch, having just finished baptising the nation in the debauched flames of their album/tour The Last Good Party. The musical vanguard is rounded out by fellow rockers and sceneshakers FOX COMPANY, RECKLESS EMPIRE and TREMOR DOLL.
The spectacle continues with an open mic event starting at 6PM in front of the hotel windows, performing to patrons and passer-bys alike, featuring folk/country sensation DANIEL ALLARS. From 10PM there’ll be the Lansdowne BLOCK PARTY, modelled after a New York block party, with hip-hop and house music. Between the live music and festivities, the relaunch will be one for the books, one to make you dance and rock ‘til the sun comes up, one to remind you of exactly what the LANSDOWNE is capable of.
The LANSDOWNE is also pleased to introduce THE PHOENIX DINER, which delivers an authentic American diner experience, featuring new menu items like Coked Up Chicken Legs (cola-braised chicken legs, chilli popcorn and slaw) and Moonshine Gumbo. The introduction of the LANSDOWNE’s epic new weekly programme will be another highlight, featuring open mic nights, trivia nights, uni events for all you students out there, theme parties, and, of course, the backbone of the relaunch – more live music than ever before.
With all of these new ventures in store, you’ll need until the 3AM closing time to truly experience what the new Lansdowne has to offer!
