QT or not to QT

January 27, 2006 – After 138 years of selling Sydney its socks, shirts and undies, the iconic Gowings department store closed its doors.  It’s old barber shop opened in 1930, offering no-nonsense short back and sides to generations of Sydney men, with solicitors, judges, actors and high-flyers waiting their turn along with the less famous.

QT Sydney then reopened the old Gowings & Iconic Theatre

It is a delicious blend of Gothic, Art Deco, and Italianate influenced architecture that form the dazzling exterior of the building.

Every step is a journey, the old horse hair plaster ceilings and feature wall of wireless (that’s a radio for those younger ones).

What can I say….

It is much more than a place to lay your head, it is a creative space to dine, drink and live (together with the good looking people).
