Ivy represents a landscaped oasis for public entertainment within a tight urban fabric.

The 20,000sqm hotel includes eighteen bars, a ballroom and a rooftop pool and draws inspiration from modern LA and Florida homes and Palm Springs glamour and nostalgia. A strong focus was placed on creating the illusion of a domestic environment through a series of interconnecting rooms, each with its own character and function, as well as clustered soft furnishings and lighting, and ‘one-off’ pieces. The genius lies in the careful interrelation between all aspects of the venue, and the opulent mix of destinations. The precinct exists in an ‘Ivy’ league of its own.
