Food Republic: Sydney’s The Old Clare Hotel Spoils You With Two World-Class Restaurants (Plus Two Bars)
When I was invited to stay at The Old Clare Hotel in Sydney, I didn’t have to vet it first (as I typically do with other hotels). I just said yes.
Why? Well, it’s part of the Unlisted Collection:, a group of incredibly cool, design-driven boutique hotels and restaurants set within historic buildings spanning four continents. And the founder, Singapore-based lawyer-turned-hotelier Loh Lik Peng, couldn’t be any more low-key and gracious – he’ll be the first to say, “just call me Peng.” But ultimately, travelers and writers alike depend on Loh’s uncanny knack for developing what everyone will be buzzing about next, whether it’s a hotel, a restaurant, or an up-and-coming neighborhood. (More often than not, it’s a combination of the three.)
