The Vincent Hotel’s restoration is a salute to the history of this corner pub, originally established as ‘The Albert Park Windsor’ in 1889. Once famous for its vast internal garden, the hotel embodies the Victorian penchant for genteel design: a richly layered palette of patterns, tones and textures tempering classical architectural restraint.
The new interior is adorned with allusions to the fabled garden. Vast botanical motifs create cascading backdrops to the main bar and bistro, inspired by the Victorian fervour for exotic plants and flowers. The interior also features colossal murals constructed of intricately hand-cut mosaic.
