The Zetland Hotel
Now known as the Green Park hotel this two storey Victorian hotel at 936-938 Bourke Street in Zetland opened in 1886. It was overlaid with an interwar Art Deco style facade circa 1939. The Green Square Hotel still has ‘Zetland Hotel’ on the stained glass window facing the corner. Inside the Art Deco style bar, fittings and décor from its 1930s makeover are remarkably intact.
