With its appearance on Wynyard Square dating back to 1850, it’s no surprise to learn that the Occidental Hotel is the oldest building in the area. Its heritage-listed foundations house two bars, a bistro, a restaurant, and a private function venue, as well as a slew of budget accommodation. So the old girl’s still working pretty hard. The public bar of the Occidental immediately makes it clear that the hotel has eschewed the temptation to renovate in a modern, shiny way. Instead, the charm of the “Occi” comes from the vintage furnishings, the old-world charm and its lack of pretension. Aside from the main bar, the Occidental boasts a bistro, as well as a second, more New York lounge-style bar on its first floor. Heading upstairs one finds the acclaimed and popular Fairmont Restaurant. Up one more level still is the private function room. Any of the spaces can be hired as a private function venue, for anything from conferences to engagements, Christmas parties to large dinners. Conveniently located in the Central Business District, the Occidental Hotel is found on the corner of York and Erskine Streets, Sydney. Looking over Wynyard Square, the historic hotel is in close proximity to all of the usual tourist locations, as well as a heap of public transport options.
