YWCA NSW Song Hotel Allows Travellers To Make a Difference

February 24, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

As responsible tourism grows in popularity[1], there’s a fantastic way for travellers to make a difference when staying in Sydney at YWCA NSW’s new Song Hotel.  

An impressive 100 per cent of Song Hotel’s profits will fund YWCA NSW’s much needed support and services for Australian’s experiencing domestic violence.

After extensive renovations, the inner-city hotel on Sydney’s Wentworth Avenue today officially opened as the Song Hotel with a sophisticated new restaurant The Song Kitchen, open to hotel guests and the public.  With 100 per cent of the venue’s profits funding YWCA NSW’s much needed support and services for women and children experiencing domestic violence, it’s an excellent way for people to make a difference with every dollar while enjoying fantastic food and wine.

YWCA NSW is leading the way for Australia’s profit for purpose sector through a number of hospitality venues raising awareness and funds for domestic violence.

The refurbishment and rebranding of the hotel follow the successful launch of The Song Kitchen initiative in 2016 in a joint venture with Mirvac which sees YWCA NSW operate the café and catering services in Mirvac’s George Street Headquarters on George St providing a premium service for Mirvac and its guests.

The Song Kitchen will be led by Head Chef Charlotte Gonzales who comes to Song from Merivale’s renowned Ucello and Fred’s restaurants in Sydney.

The breakfast menu features a selection of café favourites ranging from homemade granola to bacon and eggs, avocado on toast and buttermilk pancakes. For lunch and dinner, the menu showcases a variety of entrees designed for sharing including Sydney rock oysters, a charcuterie plate and pork terrine with apricot, pistachio and char grilled bread. An array of elegant bistro style dishes are on offer for mains ranging from duck breast with sautéed potatoes and mushroom, grain fed sirloin with shoestring fries, a lamb shoulder with great northern beans puree and a tagliolini pasta with spanner crab, zucchini, chilli and garlic. The licensed café will also be showcasing a selection of cheeses and desserts. The wine list has been carefully curated by renowned sommelier Sophie Otton to showcase the best NSW and Australian wines. Song is proud to confirm over half of the wine list is the produce of women winemakers or Estate owners.

YWCA NSW CEO Anna Bligh says the organisation is very pleased with the rebrand of the hotel and the new Song hospitality venues will help fund much needed services and support for domestic violence victims.

“People want to make a difference and support a cause and The Song Hotel leads the way in allowing you to do exactly that. Guests at Song will enjoy speciality coffee, delicious food, wine and service and know they are making a difference.
