The floor is linoleum set into tiles.The room features streamlined cornices, mirror tiled shelving units and chromed edgings and fixtures. Lights are bowl shaped and fans hang from the ceiling.

The license was acquired in September 1940 when it was transferred from the City Railway Hotel on Castlereagh Street. The Civic was sold in August 1982. On completion of rebuilding in September 1940 the hotel was a three storeyed brick stucture, with a flat concrete roof and a fully tiled ground floor exterior. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
