- Hotel Bar/Lounge
Ovolo is a hotel for the design-minded. There are several locations of this hotel chain, but we’re partial to Woolloomooloo with its bright, occasionally cheeky, approach to hospitality. There’s a well-equipped gym (open twenty-four hours), a modern vibe throughout, an inviting lounge where you can play a few rounds of pool, and—this was a first for us—the minibar is complimentary. Guest rooms feel optimistic and contemporary, with generous bookshelves, interior balconies, playful wall decorations of things like two enormous orange fish staring at each other, and brightly colored, edgy furniture—mustard-yellow chaises longues, pink stools, Alexas, iPads, and Apple TVs. Another plus: Ovolo has its own Spotify playlist to set the tone.
