Speaking of redevelopments

So, this is old news but The Bridge Hotel in Richmond is also undergoing redevelopment. It started back in April and by the look of things it’s nearing completion. According to this article in The Age from a few weeks ago the renovation is aimed at attracting more of the lady folk to the pub. I’ll keep an eye on the building works and their web site and post an update when it’s due to open. Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogle...

Article from today’s Herald Sun

Nothing really new here. I think anyone who has set foot inside a pub in the last five years knows that microbreweries and craft beer are on the rise. www.heraldsun.com.au/news/more-news/bar-wars-australias-lager-saga-is-bittersweet/story-fn7x8me2-1     Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogle +1StumbleUponEmail

The National in Richmond seems to be renovating

I was walking down Victoria Street, Richmond the other day and I noticed The National Hotel (or, The Nash) is closed for redevelopment. I only went to The Nash once, a few years ago, and I can’t really remember much about it. Still, it will be interesting to see what the redevelopment brings. As a Richmond local I think this part of Victoria Street is really going to take off in the coming years. With a couple of massive apartment complexes going up on Burnley St just opposite Victoria Gardens, and the strong likelihood that the Carlton United Brewery in Abbotsford will close (and inevitably turn into yet more apartments), this neglected stretch of the suburb is about to have a big population boom. Will the new Nash Hotel be the new residents’ local of choice?...
