    Rooms 62 /Architecture Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects /Interior Design Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects /The Original Loh Lik Peng

    Combine the bold vision of hotelier Loh Lik Peng with a Sydney-based architecture firm that understands the city’s heritage, and you get something truly transformative in the hip and happening neighborhood of Chippendale. Together, Peng and architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer have taken the iconic Clare Hotel, which was originally a pub and the Carlton United Breweries buildings, and through a sensitive restoration given birth to two buildings in one, a place where historic elements are preserved and contemporary pleasures abound. Here, lifestyle is as much in play as luxury. The 62 rooms offer an embracing mix of bespoke handcrafted items with an authentic, old-world feel, and serve as a base from which one can experience arguably the best rooftop bar and pool in the city, as well as three unique restaurants, which include the inspired work of Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. The brewery may be gone, but its semi-industrial feel, combined with sleek new elements, are the reason The Old Clare Hotel is now a neighborhood-defining property.

    Loh Lik Peng

    Loh Lik Peng’s global lifestyle draws him to different places for different reasons. The intimate scale of Dublin reminds him of his childhood, while London’s East End is all about the energetic vibe and the sense that new things are happening all the time. He opened his first venture, Hotel 1929, in a former brothel in Singapore’s red-light district in 2003. With its swank design and instant buzz, 1929 became a popular destination for travelers and locals alike. Three years later he opened the New Majestic and upped the style quotient in Singaporean hospitality even further. New properties opened recently in Singapore where he now lives, Shanghai, London, and Sydney. And not one of them is located in what your average guidebook would have considered the “right” kind of neighborhood—that is until his properties have put their once-undesirable districts on the style map.
