Event Details

A story lead by architects Techne, a transformative part of the collective of creatives behind the 2018 reincarnation of Hotel Esplanade. Weave through the hotel into rooms not seen by the masses, lined with the detail and intention of an artist's mind.

Hotel Esplanade was originally built as a 60-room hotel in the Renaissance Revival Regency Resort style before alterations in the 1920s transformed it into a celebrated live music venue. From the 90s onwards, the Espy survived numerous sales and a threatened demolition before undergoing a major refurbishment in 2018

The revived hotel now boasts 12 bars over five levels, three band stages, signalling live music is still a priority, two restaurants and a podcast studio. The Gershwin Room remains relatively untouched except for a new sound system. New areas previously closed to the public have been opened such as the Ghost of Alfred Felton cocktail bar, bringing to life the story of the philanthropist, chemist and long-time Espy resident.

Technē Architects are working with the Espy Arts program to produce this unique tour. Join us as the team unravel how they maintained decades of evolutions with their dreams for Hotel Esplanade.
