John Parker, the man behind applauded Northbridge bar, The Standard, is bringing the heritage-listed building back to life.
The Royal will be a great Australian pub once again – this time with an emphasis on quality food and an elevated pub experience. Following an extensive thirteen million dollar joint renovation with Charter Hall, the Royal Hotel opens this Saturday, 16 November.
“Back in her heyday, The Royal was a hive of mixed activity – she was the true epicentre and melting pot of Perth, and just a great Australian pub.
The Royal is a heritage-listed 140-year old grand dame with great bones and incredible Perth-centric history. I’m very excited to be returning her to modern day Perth. I’ve been running bars for 25 years now and both my father and grandfather were publicans, so I really feel like pubs are well and truly well in my blood,” says Parker.
Parker worked very closely with the team from Milieu Creative to realise his vision,
“We wanted to retain The Royal’s history and charm wherever possible, but also blend her creatively with contemporary features. The grand staircase, regal archways, timber floors and
original fac¸ade and verandah have all been lovingly restored.”
The Saloon Bar, its original name dating back to ?1894?, on the ground floor has both an indoor and outdoor section, and will offer casual drinks and contemporary plays on pub classics. Upstairs has been sectioned into multiple spaces with their own contemporary concepts, including two bars, function space, private dining and karaoke room.
