The Menzies Hotel Sydney will commemorate 50 years of operation this month and to celebrate hotel staff will step back in time and don 1960s attire for the entire month of October.

Everything from The Beatles, to Jacqui O and the hippy movement will be represented in a motley collection of staff uniforms. The lobby will feature a 60’s-inspired lounge room, playing old school films and music from the era, where guests can capture a photo of themselves ‘back in the day’.

Over the last 50 years The Menzies Hotel has played a large part in the history of Sydney. Being the first international hotel built in the city since World War II, it was officially opened by The Beach Boys in 1693. The hotel hosted skating stars on a permanent, retractable ice skating rink – a restaurant showpiece and local favorite.

Today the four-star Accor property hotel boasts 446 guestrooms, 14 function rooms accommodating up to 450 delegates, two restaurants, four bars, a gymnasium, indoor heated pool and souvenir shop.
