The Olivia Hotel on Hutt Street
Charming, intriguing and enchanting like an old book

With a name inspired by a Shakespeare character from the Twelfth Night, you won't need any excuse to return to The Olivia Hotel again and again... or will you! Nested on Hutt street, this charming venue is pretty unique and romantic and definitely worth a visit or two or as many as you want it to be!

The place has the elegance of a wine bar from another time, the trendy touch of a cocktail lounge, the relaxed vibe of a pub and the warmth and welcoming note of a vintage parlour.

Fancy a cocktail? Reds, Whites, Sparkling and all the range of good old spirits. The choice is yours!

I usually go for the champagne or sparkling when I feel like celebrating because it is served in a Marie-Antoinette glass and it adds this 'je ne sais quoi' to the whole experience when I visit! So fancy, so chic!

The two owners, Simon and Jack, are as charming as lovely and always make you feel very welcome and special. When they bought the place, they instantly fell in love with this old building. It had so much potential and they had the vision to make this venue a favourite haunt but first, it needed a lot of love to give a second life to those old forgotten walls.

In the mood for a cocktail? All you need is to ask for it

They undoubtedly put a lot of passion into renovating and decorating this place themselves, sourcing second-hand vintage furniture in op shops and the result is absolutely stunning. Beautiful colours, paintings, elegant style, velvet sofa, wooden tables, gueridon, crystal chandelier and wooden floor.

Fantastic selection of vintage furnitures that match so well with the personality of The Olivia Hotel

It is classy, comfortable, welcoming and complemented by an amazing blues and jazz playlist and there is even a terrace and a beer garden for those who want to enjoy a cocktail under the stars for a midsummer's night dream!

What a charming little beer garden!

The Olivia Hotel only opened a few months ago but it has already become a favourite as it is such a beautiful addition to Hutt Street and the perfect place to enjoy before or after a nice dinner at a local restaurant or a show at the Bakehouse Theatre.
