The history of The Rocks has always sparked my imagination .
It started when I read 'Playing Bettie Bow' at school & continued with my study of Australian history .
It evokes the mysteries of times long ago , with it's sandstoned paved ways , side alleys , tunnels & beautiful buildings
I have refreshed a secret place , down nurses walk & up a unassuming flight of stairs . It is named after the mistress of a merchant - a romantic tragedy involving class, adventure & true love!
Come for tipple at Scarlett
Each piece is bespoke, handcrafted&tooled, a historical nod to materials that would have been used when The Rocks was settled
Leather lined walls with Sleeper veneers creating the walls
The banquette is made from 200 year old sleepers, milled & oiled to anchor the room with feathered cushions covered in linen to settle into
A smithed & forged Copper topped communal table , all patched with flat head copper tacks
Antiqued mirror topped tables , all inky & stormy
Look at the details, a Pickle jar that most likely sailed into Sydney harbour full of Mediterranean olives , a sneaky Copper fire hydrant and And of course the model of the shop that Eric sailed on
All furniture designed by Sibella Court
Scarlett can be found at Harbour Rocks Hotel, 34 Harrington Street, The Rocks
