Pullman Sydney Airport made a bold artistic statement last Thursday night to celebrate its opening.
In celebration of the first internationally branded new-build 5-star hotel to service the Sydney Airport precinct, the Pullman Art Night featured a spectacular showcase of contemporary art by Gillie and Marc, best known for their iconic sculpture characters, Rabbitgirl and Dogman.
A crowd of over 200 guests from the travel and tourism industry gathered to celebrate the launch of the new 12-story, 229-room Pullman Sydney Airport hotel, which represents the 15th Pullman branded hotel to open across Australia and New Zealand and the 700th property to join AccorHotels’ network in the Asia Pacific region.
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events and Minister for Sport, The Hon. Stuart Ayres officially opened the hotel with a ceremonial plaque unveiling with AccorHotels COO Pacific, Simon McGrath and Pullman Sydney Airport general manager Bernie Boller. Hotel owner/developers Goodman Group joined in the celebrations alongside Nanshan, who will take over ownership of the hotel next month.
Throughout the evening, guests were entertained by a roving magician and live band ‘Myall High Club’, whilst enjoying a tipple from the pop-up Tattinger Champagne bar, gin bar and freshly shucked signature oysters. In a theatrical display, executive chef Daniel Simpson served up plates of chargrilled Kobe and Alaskan crab from the hotel’s open kitchen – Mobius Bar and Grill – showcasing Pullman hotel’s Tapastry style menu’s, inspired by Pullman’s culinary ambassador, Justin North.
