An inner city YWCA in Sydney has undergone extensive renovations to emerge yesterday as The Song Hotel, not only boasting a location on Wentworth Avenue opposite Hyde Park, but also pledging 100% of all profits to fund YWCA NSW’s services and support for domestic violence victims.
And responsible tourism goes a step further with the hotel’s “dining for a cause” ethos at its new restaurant, The Song Kitchen. Led by Head Chef Charlotte Gonzales, The Song Kitchen’s sophisticated a la carte menu showcases fresh seasonal produce and is open to the public breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“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,” said YWCA NSW CEO Anna Bligh.
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.
