The Piccadilly Hotel

The Piccadilly Hotel at 171-173 Victoria Street, Kings Cross, was constructed in 1939 for Brewers, Tooths and Company which replaced a previous hotel on the site called the Austral Club Hotel.

The Piccadilly hotel is a fine example of an Inter War Functionalist style building designed by prominent architects Provost and Ancher.

View of the hotel in Winter with no tree leaves!

The hotel is unusual in that it is located in the middle of a block instead of a corner site. In Summer it is difficult to appreciate the Art Deco influences but in Winter the facade is not obscured by the trees in front of the building.

The downstairs lounge area is the well known Soho Bar. It is decorated with a very Art Deco feel as illustrated in the photo.
