ROCK ON: Exchange Hotel to get $6 million musical makeover

Hamilton’s Exchange Hotel is poised to become one of the premier live music spaces in Newcastle.

The Exchange will be closing its doors on Monday 20 January for a major $6 million renovation that is expected to breathe musical life into the Beaumont Street venue.

“We understand the importance of live music in Newcastle and from Monday 20, January 2020 we will be closing down the venue to carry out a $6 million renovation,” hotel spokesperson Sally Codyre told AHA NSW Newcastle -Hunter.

“When the hotel re-opens in mid-2020, we imagine it will be Newcastle’s premier live music space.”

The renovation will see the car-park and gaming areas repurposed into a live music space, while there will also be a music viewing area upstairs along with a VIP area and cocktail bar.

“We have put a lot of work into making sure we create the best live music space possible,” Ms Codyre added.

The Exchange is owned by Eastern Hotels Group, who acquired the venue in 2016. The group also owns Shoal Bay Country Club and the recently purchased Beach Hotel in Merewether.

The hotel will also be holding an onsite garage sale on Saturday 11 January for those interested in bagging a souvenir or piece of furniture.

The Exchange Hotel will close its doors on Monday 20 January. It is expected to re-open in mid-2020.
