The Royal Bondi
The first stage of Merivale's revamped version of this long-running Bondi pub is now open.
The Royal has been kicking around in some capacity since 1907, but now it's entering into a new phase of life — the Bondi pub was acquired by Merivale late last year and has reopened with a few alterations. It's now pouring a hefty range of booze for just about every palate and budget. Swing by for a summery daiquiri post-dip, an espresso martini on tap, an interesting bottle of natural wine, or even something bubbly, celebratory and French.
The Royal's attached retail offering The Bottle Shop has also reopened, and the pub's restaurant and courtyard will be back in action by summer, playing host to an exciting yet-to-be-announced food pop-up for the sunny season.
