The Sydney Lounge will be closed for approximately a month from Monday January 13th for renovations of the rooms on the same level, the 36th floor. A temporary lounge will be located on the 4th floor. Apparently the minimal change to the lounge will include a new coffee machine. The current one, a Nespresso commercial machine, is said to be too expensive to operate. That does not forebode well. Renovations are underway at the moment on the 37th floor and the noise, outside of breakfast and drinks hours, is very loud in the lounge. I'll be avoiding rooms anywhere near the 36th floor for the time being.

The lounge moved to the Zeta Bar, which is in the 4th floor immediately above Glass restaurant, from breakfast this morning (Jan 13, 2020) and will be there until Feb 7. The area is substantially more spacious than the 36th floor lounge but would appear to have about the same number of tables. There is also an outdoor terrace. The lounge has been very busy in the last few days. I'll be interested to see how they set up for tonight's "Evening Drinks and Canapes".

So when does the old lounge re-open?
As post #3 mentions, it was to open on Feb 7 and did indeed then.

The changes to the lounge are minimal. The same stains are on the benches and chairs but the coffee machines are replaced by cheaper models. As well the restroom door now has an automatic closer on it. The staff remain cheerful and friendly :)
