AC/DC’s former home, the Hampton Court Hotel in Kings Cross, has been refurbished.
New Hampton owner Kieran Coleman said, “Our intention with this venue from the beginning was to bring ‘The Rocks to The Cross’. We love the old Sydney feel of The Rocks, with its cobbled lanes and rich culture, and we wanted to bring that atmosphere into The Cross, which is traditionally known for being a bit more ‘dark and dingy’.”
New Hampton is a 450 person venue, complete with two separate bar areas, a fine-dining restaurant called Harvest, a VIP area with 100 person capacity, nightclub, pokies room and smoking area.
New Hampton has a private function room that can be hired out for corporate functions, product launches and birthday celebrations. It is open for lunch and dinner from 11am until late, seven days a week and accepts bookings.
Harvest restaurant is modern Australian with a French twist and offers dishes such as confit pork belly, crispy pig’s ear and chargrilled beef sirloin and fillet on the bone.
New Hampton has over 20 wines by the glass, featuring wines from Australia, France, Italy, New Zealand and the United States. The cocktail menu is a mixture of classic cocktails and some new creations, including the Hampton Ice Tea, Chocolate Sazerac and Belvedere Caramel Martini, to name a few.
