Bellevue Hotel

A traditional pub whose end of life was an all-night drinking hole. Now appropriately gentrified, it’s shell houses an art gallery and fronts residential high-rise. This collections shows it’s terminal phase and transition from 2004 to 2007.

Bellevue Hotel at the Newcastle Bank Corner, Hunter Street West, 2 October 2006. Indignity has arrived.

All you ever needed to know about the Bellevue Hotel can be read here at the ever excellent Coal River website [PDF document linked].

The two storey building is a modest example of the Victorian Italianate style. Above the level of the awning, the external wall of the building retains much of the c1880-90 fabric and integrity and that of 1935.

Only modestly Victorian Italianate, much to the relief of patrons.
