View of large numbers of table and chair settings in an area lined with veneer wall panels. The room features a linoleum floor laid in a bold design, decorated cornices and aggregate or stone columns decorated with bands of thin mirror tiles and timber strips at the base. The furniture is all of timber construction and includes a variety of chairs, including some with substantial padding and others with none. Lights hang from the beams and the space is decorated by potted palms placed on various sorts of pedestals. The windows are dressed with venetian blinds and heavy dark curtains. 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.
