Ida Bailey was the Stingaree’s district’s most flamboyant and famous madam. Her house of ill-repute, the Canary Cottage, stood or on near where the Horton Grand’s restaurant is today. In addition to its more scarlet attributes, the Canary Cottage was famed for serving some of the best food and drink in the city. While Bailey’s occupation left much to be desired, there was no faulting her culinary tastes.

So it just seemed natural for the Horton Grand to name their restaurant after her.

Guests arriving at the Ida Bailey Restaurant enter an airy atrium lit and warmed by the sun pouring through skylights and long windows facing the brick courtyard.

The magnificent Palace Bar has such appointments as rich oak paneled walls, an eight-and-a-half-foot gilt-edged mirror, an elaborate hand-painted mural of Greek goddesses, intricate wood carving throughout the bar, a striking central staircase, part of the original structure.
