New in the Newtown Hotel

After years of seeing the Newtown Hotel boarded up (except for its brief stint as the Freaky Tiki), it was great to see the pub open its doors once again under the Keystone Group (also owners of Cargo, The Winery and Gazebo). The hotel has been painted in a brave and eye-catching palette of greens.

I popped in for a quick drink after work and there's plenty to catch your eye and and make this an appealing, new place to meet with friends. Upstairs, it is called 'The Animal' and has been kitted out by Coco Republic Interior Design. So many fantastic touches, graffiti, a private dining stripper pole, a photo booth, pop art and even a caravan! Definitely looking forward to having more drinks on the beautiful new balcony overlooking King Street and tasting the Greek eats.
