Hotel Kurrajong Canberra is a sparkling jewel in the social and political history of Canberra. Located just minutes away from Parliament House, the buildings and grounds of this grand hotel have played host to visitors and locals alike throughout its 100 year history.
Following a near total refurbishment in 2014, doors are once again open with a stunning fit-out that tips its hat to art deco design while bringing a modern edge to the foyer and rooms. As with any hotel, the most social part of the facility is the place where you can get a meal and a drink.
Chifley’s Bar & Grill is a nostalgic nod to Ben Chifley who lived, worked and ate on the grounds and an era when local produce, freshly baked bread and snout to tail eating reigned. It caters to discerning travellers, the local diplomat or business person with honest, classic but inventive dishes – classic steaks married with superfood salads and dishes designed for sharing.
A quality wine list offers variety of local and international wines. The 1920s marked the birth of the modern restaurant industry when eating out was no longer confined to the elite and leisure travel became open to everyone. Today the restaurant’s warm nostalgic interiors are inviting to all.
They provide a place for a quick bite or drink at the bar, to celebrate a special occasion with family and friends or relax at a summer acoustic session in the garden.
A whiskey bar honouring Chifley’s favourite drink will take guests on a sensory journey through decades gone by via a menu of carefully curated liquors and cocktails, craft beers, ciders and artisan wines. Open seven days for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Chifley’s Bar & Grill creates a unique experience for functions in a classically elegant yet beautifully refurbished dining room, extending to a glassed-in terrace overlooking the hotel gardens. Choose from five unique function spaces to foster the perfect atmosphere for your next event or special occasion.
