The décor throughout Turquoise Tiger emphasises geometric forms of curves, chevrons and diamond motifs. Vivid high contrasting colours of turquoise and gold emphasise the luxury and glamour of a gilded age. In Turquoise Tiger, inlays of Louis Blue granite, in black, lacquered mahogany accent the backlit turquoise diamonds of the venues’ curved bar. Live performances of rat pack style crooner’s reference an era of notoriety and prohibition, mixed with vaudeville style burlesque performances and a speakeasy atmosphere. The design combines classic movie posters in a cinema chic atmosphere, where duelling pianos draw the eye to a stage backdrop of shimmering gold silk Australian swag curtains.

The undulating curved camel-back banquette seating tufted with warm, gold tones are accented with a signature diamond, laced pattern of the bar highlighted by sparkling black tufting buttons, tiered crystal chandeliers hanging above each banquette, strikingly accenting the 8 foot tall custom made wall sconces that are from floor to ceiling. The glamorous women’s room is accented by golden onyx wall tile; lacquered black moulding and a deep turquoise ceiling that enhance the experience. There are four vanities trimmed with a silk and velvet wall covering inset behind black, lacquered cabinetry topped with Louis Blue granite counter tops that create the sophisticated style.
