Kuleto's Bar One, Bar Two & Roof-deck Bar @ Kuletos
The Hotel was established in 1877 as the Hampton Court Hotel, renamed the Milton Hotel in 1887 and has been trading as a hotel ever since.
In the early 1980's the name was changed to Cecchini', and when the current owner/licensee Donna Asensio purchased it in 1985 kept the name until she changed it to Kuleto's (rhymes with Stilleto's)a few years later. She named it after one of her favorite bars in Powell Street San Francisco.
As she chose not to install poker machines for moral and aesthetic reasons she has kept them out of the bar and has run it along the lines of a European style cocktail bar. She is now the longest serving Licensee in Newtown.
Kuletos uses B & O sound equipment in Bar one and Bose on the other two floors.
The ground floor bar is well know to the locals, University students and local hospital staff and has become a must be place between 6 – 7.30pm Cocktail Happy Hour. Where a large number of the regular cocktails are served at half price or two for one. Electronic/Lounge music sets the tone and it can be a challenge to find a table during these times.
The new bar on level one is a more relaxed bar overlooking King Street, it also does a Cocktail Happy Hour with the exception of blended drinks, keeping the noise to a minimum. An Enomatic wine system will allow the bar to serve quality wines by the glass. The music is more subdued and mainly Lounge, New Jazz music and is popular for functions.
This bar leads you to the top floor that leads out to a wonderful open air deck overlooking the city, great for BBQ's and entertaining.
Kuletos sells a range of fresh pizzas hot from our ovens daily.
On King Street in Newtown.
