Spread over three levels, Shell House is an unparalleled hospitality experience in the Sydney CBD, combining both indoor and outdoor settings over 1,250 sqm of space. This includes a ground floor bar Menzies Bar, The Dining Room and Terrace and the Clocktower Bar on level 9 and Sky Bar on Level 10.
“We feel like we have a once in a generation opportunity to do something extraordinary of a global standard, to build a new iconic hospitality landmark and take a leading role in reigniting the CBD dining culture. We love creating modern hospitality experiences in unique locations and have a proven track record of delivering experiences people love.”
– Brett Robinson
Rooftop diners will be provided with a bird’s eye view of the building’s iconic 400-tonne clock tower, which has been lovingly restored after being suspended mid-air for several years while Shell House was excavated and rebuilt.
Shell House is historically significant as the only surviving interwar commercial palazzo-style building in Sydney, clad with glazed terracotta ‘faience’ blocks. Standing at 65.5 metres high, Shell House’s façade is also one of the tallest retained heritage façades in the world.
Prior to redevelopment, Shell House was home to the Menzies Hotel, with its outdated 1970s interiors now being transformed into a contemporary office building designed by architects MAKE and Architectus with fitout by Woods Bagot.
