Pool Club

Pool Club at The Ivy

Inspired by magazine reviews, for a long time now I have thought what fun it would be to have a drink at The Ivy  'Pool Club' located in the heart of the Sydney's CBD. What a great spot to unwind after work on a hot summer's night!

Obviously drawing inspiration from Kelly Wrestler's fresh update on the Viceroy Hotel at Palm Springs  (below images) with it's yellow, white and black colour palette.

The Viceroy Hotel, Palm Springs

I love the sunny yellow and white stripes for a retro fifties feel. The theme has translated well into this cool city hang out which not only offers a roof top pool but a number of bars, lounges, casual eateries, a sushi bar and a fine dining restaurant to suit all weather conditions, any occasion and all budgets. On my recent trip to Sydney I popped in for a quick visit, I happily tucked into barbeque spare ribs and a cocktail by the pool on a perfect sunny day.

I loved the pop of yellow and the bright turquoise. The abundance of indoor plants and hanging ferns created a lush, calm oasis in amongst the city's high rise buildings. The retro furniture, the custom made light fittings and soft furnishings, the striped awnings, and the stylish fit out the all helped to create a chilled out, groovy vibe with a difference!

This casually stylish ensemble with it's yellow and white striped bikini would be perfect for a quick dip in the pool or a lounge on the inflatable duck that floats around the pool. Then when you're feeling a bit peckish slip into some shorts, a tee, pop on a hat and some fifties style sunnies and head to one of the cafes for a bit to eat. What a cool way to spend a hot afternoon in the city!
