If you’ve ever had a deep desire to camp on the roof of Melbourne Central, Jerome Borazio has now granted your wish. We doubt you ever really thought about it, but now that we’ve suggested it, you’re totally into it right? Us too.
You may recognise the name Jerome Borazio, he’s the man who opened St Jerome’s, one of Melbourne’s first laneway bars, which closed it’s doors in 2009, co-organised St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, and now runs Thousand Pound Bend, the café come art space in the CBD. He knows culture and he knows how to make new and interesting things for Melbourne.
This new accommodation experience will see St. Jerome’s – The Hotel pop-up on the rooftop of Melbourne Central, but only for a short period of time, sadly. If you secure a spot you’ll be sleeping under the stars and on top of the world at the same time. Glamping gets an urban twist. But what do the rooms look like? Guests will sleep in the fully furnished Homecamp canvas bell tents, with 25x 4m bell tents and 5x 5m bell tents to choose from. A communal lawn area, bar, showers, and toilets give you the rest of your hotel experience. Plus a mini bar with complimentary soft drinks, water and snacks.
To further extend the hotel experience, there will be a 24 hour concierge service, free Tai Chi and meditation classes run daily, afternoon tea from 3pm – 5pm with treats from Cupcakes Central, and breakfast hampers.
Fancy a little staycation?
