A STATEMENT OF INTENT

Sophisticated Style Makes a Hotspot Pop

Sitting in the heart of Sydney's chic CBD and directly above Alpha, one of the country's finest restaurants, lies Beta, an incredibly stylish destination bar that oozes class and sophistication. Designed by DS17, Beta represents one of the finest venues in Australia's increasingly hip Sydney. Architecture meets signature, statement design to create a modern, engaging space that finds revelers in the heart of the city.

Found above celebrated restaurant, Alpha, Beta provides a chic destination bar and gallery in the center of Sydney's CBD. The original bar concept was created as part of a collaboration between the historic Hellenic Club and renowned chef Peter Conistis. Designed by DS17's Paul Papadopoulos, the interiors of the bar achieve a delicate balance between the original classic structure of the building and statement contemporary design. Respectful of the elegant architecture of 238 Castlereagh Street, the bar awakens the inherent beauty of the structure. The bar design creates a sympathetic modern installation within the existing classical space, adding to the natural beauty of the raw interiors without altering the original structure. Papadopoulos's design vision complements the building's raw brickwork and elegant arches with metallic accents and muted tones, creating an elegant modern space within the organic environment.

Beta features original elements from global designers; including striking furniture created by Italian Danish design brand GamFratesi, a distinctive lighting installation from renowned Greek designer, Michael Anastassiades, and pieces by acclaimed London product and interior designer Lee Broom. Broom's polished brass pendant light fittings add a futuristic touch to the space, while table lamps of crystal bulbs set into gold plated bases are reminiscent of a more traditional style. Monolithic style candlesticks sculpted from pure Carrara marble create a contemporary reference to Beta's Greek heritage. One of the most exciting bars in the city, Beta promises to be a hot spot for years to come, bringing a striking new design statement to the heart of Sydney's CBD.
