Description: 
View of a curved linoleum-topped bar faced with bands of different coloured tiles which also decorate the walls.The split level floor is laid with small square tiles and a series of pillars are covered with thin glossy rectangular tiles. Additional pillars encased in mirror strips form junctions between the inner counter and the ceiling beams which are decorated in relief with a geometric design based on semi-circles. Other details include chromed edgings and fixtures, fountain lights, two cash registers, an octagonal clock on a square mirror pillar and vases of flowers. The Bondi Junction Hotel was built by Tooth & Company Limited after the license was transferred from the Queens Hotel, Woollahra in December 1941. On completion in 1942 the hotel was a three storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and a tile and concrete roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
