Sydney’s last standing live music pub, The Annandale is up for sale. Although the owners are hoping someone will keep their live music dream alive there is every chance The Annandale could follow the Hopetoun, Excelsior and Ravel being another live music pub lost to Sydney.
According to The Daily Telegraph, owners Matt and Dan Rule will officially put the pub up for sale this week.
“We’re offering investors the chance to get in at the grassroots,” Matt Rule said. “The great thing about it is that at the grassroots they’d be gaining a business that’s been operating successfully for over 10 years.”
After being sold in 1998 the pub turned into a pokie den before the Rule brothers took over management and started booking bands again and soon after bought the pub themselves.
