The Adnate & Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails officially open

More than 300 VIP guests, industry leaders and local celebrities celebrated the official opening of The Adnate and Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails last night (Wednesday 13 November) at a spectacular red-carpet soiree at the new $90 million Hay Street hotel.

Celebrations took over the entire 27-storey hotel – poolside to skyline – to mark the opening of Western Australia’s first Art Series hotel and Art Series’ first hotel dedicated to street art.

Guests included The Adnate namesake artist Matt Adnate, Accor Apartment & Leases Senior Vice President Operations Mark Hodge, hotel developers George & Peter Atzemis, model Nathan McGuire (and subject of the hotel’s mural and foyer portraits) and Piiata Heenan (subject of Adnate’s Maori portrait in the hotel laneway).

At the evening event, revellers sampled food and beverages from the hotel’s onsite Miami-style Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails, and were captivated with a range of performances and live art installations, including aerial and water dancers, floating orb contortionists and DJ performances

Local indigenous artist and proud Nyoongar woman, Jade Dolman, completed the finishing touches to her mural collaboration with Adnate on the night, while international painter Eric Mangen added another street art mural installation to the hotel live during the event.

Acclaimed Australian street artist, Sofles, also donned a virtual reality headset and hand controls (virtual spray cans) to showcase his talents on a big screen for a crowd of awe-inspired guests, who were also encouraged to explore their VR graffiti skills.

Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, commented, “We are very pleased to partner with the Atzemis family, the developers and owners of The Adnate, on this iconic property for Perth and our Group. As with all of our Art Series hotels, The Adnate was built around its namesake artist Matt Adnate to create a bespoke artist inspired guest experience.  This hotel is true to Adnate and his incredible ability to tell stories about cultural and community connection through his art.”

Inspired by the powerful multicultural portraiture of renowned Australian big wall street artist, Adnate, the 250-room hotel features one of the world’s largest ‘mega murals’ – a monumental artwork spanning 25 storeys; the largest ever painted by Adnate and the tallest mural in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Adnate namesake artist Matt Adnate said: “If I wasn’t up there painting I’d be absolutely scared but, because I’m painting, I feel completely comfortable. Most of the subjects in my paintings are people who I have met and personally photographed. The best part of my work is the experiences and the education I receive from the people I meet. It has taken me on a journey that I never expected and has completely changed my life.”

Located on level one of The Adnate, Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails is Perth’s chicest new restaurant and bar, boasting an outdoor pool, sun loungers and DJ decks. Casual by day, classy by night, this laid-back venue, with music and entertainment at its core, is a playground for after-work drinks or long, lazy lunches with friends or colleagues.

The opening of Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails is a WA first for the HYDE brand, which is widely known for its iconic celebrity-packed venues in Los Angeles and Miami.

The Adnate adds to Accor’s growing presence in Perth of 14 properties.

The Adnate, 900 Hay Street, Perth WA


Matt Adnate has moved past his roots in Street Art, utilising the medium to carry his realist style into the fine art realm.

Heavily influenced by the chiaroscuro of renaissance painters like Caravaggio, Adnate embraces portraiture like the masters of the XXI Century.

Adnate has always held a connection towards indigenous people of their native land, especially with Indigenous Australians. He paints large-scale murals in the main cities around Australia and the world, creating a statement of reclaiming the land that was always theirs. He endeavours to capture the stories and emotions of each subject he paints, encouraging the audience to feel through their own experience.


Arts Series Hotels transformed the Australian hotel market when it launched in 2009.

Inspired by and dedicated to Australian contemporary artists, each hotel takes design inspiration from the namesake artist. With original artworks and prints adorning the walls and halls, the multifaceted art inspired experience is complete with dedicated art channels, art libraries, art tours and art utensils on supply.

Glass bottomed pools, private outdoor decking areas, state of the art gymnasiums, massive communal spaces and boutique conference and events spaces complete the picture.
