The Polo Lounge

As part of the Oxford Hotel, the two upper levels of this grand old building once hosted the infamous Gilligan's. Much loved for its potent cocktails, Gilligan's ran as a queer bar for about 20 years before the entire premises closed for a major renovation in 2004. Several million dollars later the Oxford Hotel re-emerged with a main gay bar on the ground level, a cabaret bar on the first level known as the Supper Club, and a stunning level-two bar reminiscent of the former Gilligans, the Polo Lounge. Stylish décor includes opulent lounges, fireplaces and a life-size horse lamp, and the bar offers great views of Taylor Square.

Currently, the Polo Lounge is only open for special events and is available to hire for functions.
