Music Feeds can reveal that the Abercrombie Hotel on Broadway, which closed down in January 2010 will reopen. Frasiers Property have leased the pub to Jamie Wirth from the Bang Gang DJs & also an owner of The Norfolk Hotel on Cleveland Street.
The lease has been granted for 2 years and it seems there will be a small amount of renovations done before it will reopen with the same layout as before. It would seem it will be a short lived hey day as full renovations are still expected when the Broadway developments are finished.
While it has not been confirmed what the exact plan is for the place, there will be food. The leaseholders have already hired a full time chef. Party nights are also on the agenda with the leaseholders already in negotiations with local promoters.
There is no date set for the reopening, more info soon..
The Abercrombie Hotel was an iconic music hub in Sydney, hosting popular nights: Purple Sneakers, Britpop, DNBBQ and Indie band night Secluded Sundays.
