Built in 1932, the Art Deco interiors of the main bar remain the social hub of Erskineville village. Renown for an eclectic mix of residents, students, urban professionals and local identities, this old boozer might find you locking eyes with celebrities, media personalities or sporting icons over the famous island bar.
The island bar is the iconic feature of the pub, the design reflecting an intent to create social interaction and a sense of community. A place where individuals wander in to find conversation, laughter and good times often ending in all-nighters.
Owned and operated by the Leach Family for over 20 years. It will come as no surprise to find Elissa, Clare or Scott working the floor or just playing mine host. This is a pub run by a local family for the local community. A place you can meet and know the publican.
Fully renovated the pub maintains the traditional front bar whilst delivering sophisticated function and dining spaces on the ground floor, a TAB for the punters and outdoor curb side seating to watch the world wander past. Climb the stairs to the newly opened Howards Cantina to find a cocktail bar, share plate restaurant and outdoor terrace. This local truly has Erskineville covered.
