Merivale’s ever expanding repertoire of bars and restaurants has reached the previously untouched shores of the inner west.
Located on Enmore Road within walking distance of Newtown Station the Queen Victoria Hotel purchase follows the group’s landmark acquisition of the Newport Arms in Pittwater last month.
Possession will be taken of the Queen Victoria Hotel in late April with a re-launch scheduled for early June. A strong food focus will be more than welcome in the food friendly streets of Newtown and Enmore.The Queen Victoria Hotel kitchen will be spearheaded by current chef duo Christopher Hogath and Patrick Friesen of Manly’s Papi Chulo. With impressive resumes including involvement with Mr. Wong, Ms.G’s and El Loco the pair will create a menu inspired by Hong Kong street food.
Justin Hemmes, CEO of Merivale, said: “The Queen Victoria Hotel is another fantastic addition to the Merivale group in what is undoubtedly our most exciting year yet. I am passionate about creating world-class venues designed specifically around the local community and look forward to becoming part of Sydney’s thriving Inner West”.
Hemmes is on a property buying rampage having also purchased the Paddington Arms on Oxford Street last year, set to re-open in August. This was followed by 50 King Street in Sydney’s CBD, which re-opened as art-based pop-up Work in Progress last May, and the Beach Palace Hotel, transformed by Merivale into the Coogee Pavilion.
