Experience Kimpton Margot's Art Deco glamour and Moulin Rouge! magnificence
As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a good first impression, and when it comes to first impressions no one does it quite like Kimpton Margot Sydney.
Formerly the Primus Hotel, and in another life time the headquarters to the Sydney Water Board, Kimpton Margot is the first Kimpton property to open in Australia with the building reinvented and relaunched on Valentine’s Day 2022. Its ubiquitous exterior offers no clues as to what lies within, it’s not until you enter that all the grandeur of Kimpton Margot is revealed.
At first glance it’s those extraordinarily high ceilings which deliver a moment of wow! Held aloft by the almighty Scagliola pillars is the glass-tiled skylight, setting a dramatic scene of extraordinary space and abundance of natural light.
The art-deco exterior theme flows throughout the hotel and seamlessly merges Kimpton Margot's beautiful heritage and old world glamour with modern sophistication.
Check in is smooth with the friendly reception team offering a warm welcome and extending an invitation to join “Social Hour” in the lobby with complimentary wine from 5 to 6 p.m.
As you move through the hotel the grandiose interiors flow from the foyer right right through to your room, whether you’re staying in the King Bed Essential or checking into one of the Speciality Suites. Each of the 172 rooms are super luxurious and beautifully highlight Kimpton Margot’s unique historic space.
The whimsical 1930’s interior edits complement the contemporary furniture selections, premium eco bedding, oversized bathrooms and all those little luxuries you didn’t know you needed.
When it comes to dining the good news is you don’t need to leave this beauty, with Luke’s Kitchen brought to you by none other than acclaimed Australian chef, Luke Mangan.
Known as the jewel of Margot, Luke’s Kitchen is a Modern Australian diner that offers both guests and visitors the opportunity to dine for breakfast, lunch or soak up the divine night time dining atmosphere.
Pre and/or post dinner drinks in The Wilmot Bar, cocktail in hand, on the plush velvet lounges is a must and the best way to experience this extraordinary building in all its evening glory.
If you’re looking for the ultimate city staycation you must spoil yourself with the Moulin Rouge! The Musical package.
Starting from $995 for overnight accommodation in a Premium Room or Signature Suite, the package includes breakfast for two, and two premium category tickets to the dazzling Moulin Rouge! The Musical at the Capitol Theatre.
Before you make your way to the theatre Kimpton Margot invite you to enjoy a Pre-Theatre Moulin Rouge x Luke Mangan inspired dinner at Luke's Kitchen.
Your dining experience offers theatre-goers a delicious 3-course pre-theatre dinner available daily from 5pm - 7pm for $85 with a choice of entrees such as lobster bisque, chicken liver & bacon pate or baked fig tart; mains including flounder a la meuniere, steak frites or pan-fried gnocchi and delicious desserts such as chocolate fondant or rum baba.
In the warmer months head up to Level 7 for a dip in the open-air pool. Sitting well above the city hustle and bustle you can order light bites and cocktails from The Wilmot Bar whilst relaxing on the poolside lounges or under the nautical themed cabanas.
Similar to her launch into the Sydney accommodation scene, Kimpton Margot is understated, however for those who have experienced, the memories are exquisite and long lasting.
