Venue: Ace Hotel Sydney, 47/53 Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills
Join ABC TVs resident design nerd for a nostalgic and hilarious romp through his favourite moments of Australiana with his new live show Rosso 88.
From the iconic to the everyday, the random to the revolutionary, the beautiful to the bat shit crazy, Tim will explore the moments that define who we are with the just the aid of a clicker and some slides.
Factual and funny, it’s an expo without having to pile your family into the Camira and drive them to Brisbane.
Ace Hotel Sydney reanimates the historical Tyne Building in Surry Hills, built above Australia’s first kiln discovery. Inspired by the rich history of Surry Hills and the warm, cinematic colour palette of the Australian landscape, the 257-room hotel marks Ace’s very first stake in the Southern Hemisphere and was designed in partnership with Flack Studio. The building’s organic design merges the past with the present, stirred by the city’s rough-hewn history: the renegade razor gangs that ruled the 1920s, the modernist art boom of the 1960s, the Gay Solidarity Group protests of the 1970s and the vibrant cultural coalescence of generations of migrant communities. LOAM, a neighbourhood spot for natural fare, anchors the lobby level along with cafe and bar Good Chemistry, plus there’s a cocktail bar smackdab in the hotel’s lobby. Up top there’s Kiln, an 18th-floor rooftop restaurant and bar helmed by genre-bending Chef Mitch Orr, with a striking dining room designed by Fiona Lynch Office.
