Kilkenny Inn Hotel
250 King Street, Melbourne 3000.
- Constructed in 1915.
- Designed by Sydney Smith & Ogg.
- Not listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.
The Kilkenny Inn Hotel is one of many hotels designed by Sydney Smith & Ogg and was built in 1915 for hotelier, Mrs Helen Horgan.
The Kilkenny Inn building is most notable for the unusual corner treatment, which features a three-storey 'rotunda' of which the upper two levels act as a verandah and the street level as the main entrance to the building. The building also features a typical federation-era design and Arts & Crafts detailing. The National Trust considers this property to be of State Significance.
Despite its popularity, the building is regrettably used as a strip club rather than an accomodation centre these days.
