Boogie Woogie Beach House…hanging out with music legends.

Boogie Woogie Beach House…hanging out with music legends.

Along with the unique drum chandelier; a statement of the roots of this establishment; Satchmo (Louis Armstrong), Dave Grohl, Ziggy Stardust, Nick Cave and the iconic music tape (mixed) are the inspiration for a boutique hotel where it is not about decorating rather curating an environment that leaves the quest feeling as though they actually are hangning out with music legends. Live musicians in the downstairs Flow Bar on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons add to this music vibe.

Located in Old Bar, Taree the nine bedroom boutique hotel with five rooms currently available and four due to be completed soon, each offer HD flat-screen, TV, Foxtel, free Wi-Fi and thick, luxurious therapedic mattresses make an ideal weekend getaway holiday for Sydney and Newcastle residents. It also is a great location for travellers wanting to explore the Central New South Wales coast.

The five rooms currently availabe are Ziggy Suite (King Room), The Cave (Queen Road), The Grohl (Queen Room), Mixed Tape (King Room) and Louis (Queen).

Mmmm, so who would I like to spend the night with…probably not Dave, as much as admire the Chuck Close tile picture of his face I just don’t feel hip enough. The Ziggy Suite is like David Bowie urbane and very cool; the rooms clean lines feels spacious and very inviting. Nick has always been a bit broody for me; although we all wish that he would come in stay. I really love the mixed tape room but somehow Satchmo; uber cool Louis Armstrong (before uber became a word) won my heart.
