The Kent Hotel

Hamilton venue unveils renovation plans

The Kent Hotel, a cherished landmark in the heart of Hamilton, is set to embark on an exciting new chapter with the announcement of renovations to its main bar and the launch of a new upstairs venue, Veranda Bar.

With a rich history in Hamilton, dating back a century, The Kent Hotel has long been a beloved destination for locals and visitors alike. Now, in a bid to revitalise this iconic venue and revive a part of its history, extensive renovations are underway to enhance the overall guest experience in the main bar of the venue.

“We are incredibly excited to announce the revitalisation of The Kent Hotel. With these renovations, we aim to honour the venue’s heritage while providing our guests with an enhanced and memorable experience,” Managing Director of Hunt Hospitality, Stephen Hunt said.

The renovations to the main bar commenced in late April and will introduce a contemporary, Art Deco-inspired design that has a welcoming ambience, complete with upgraded facilities and a refreshed aesthetic that pays homage to The Kent Hotel’s storied past.

The introduction of a new U-shaped bar will allow for smooth bar service, a complete view of the action behind the bar, and ample places for patrons to sit. The renovations are set to finish in July just in time for The Kent’s 100th birthday.

In addition to the main bar renovations, The Kent Hotel is thrilled to unveil its new Veranda Bar, situated upstairs, and boasting 12 new beer taps. The charming additions to their upstairs bar will offer guests an improved experience and service to the beloved balcony where guests can relax and unwind, with a curated selection of beverages and a cosy atmosphere.

The Kent Hotel will remain open throughout the renovations, with the Veranda Bar serving as a delightful retreat for patrons to enjoy during this period.
