Royal Albert Hotel Sydney

Royal Albert Hotel Sydney is the type of pub that still feels like a kick-ass local. It’d be a shame if it didn’t, frankly. It’s stood in its spot on Commonwealth Street for well over a century and boasts the kind of chequered and lively past that makes a legendary local truly legendary. Nowadays though, the Royal combines good food and good drinkin’ with a laid-back vibe and the type of coolness that comes with not ever seeming like ‘cool’ is the aim. What we’re saying, in a very roundabout way, is that the Royal Albert Hotel is good for hanging out with friends, catching up with friends, and enjoying a beer with friends. For all of one’s drinking and stomach-lining-for-said-drinking needs, the Royal has it covered. Behind the bar, one finds a winning selection of craft beers, and next door one finds the Bamboo Dumpling Bar. As far as function venues are concerned, smaller groups can section off areas of the pub proper. Small nooks and crannies, larger lounge areas, it all depends on the size and speed of the group at hand. It’s worth noting Bamboo’s actually a part of the Royal Albert and is available to be enjoyed by those in search of function venues as well as food. Larger groups (up to 150) are able to use the hotel in its entirety. The Royal Albert Hotel is located on Commonwealth Street, near the corner of Reservoir Street. That’s in pretty-hip Surry Hills, within spitting distance of the centre of Sydney’s CBD and Belmore Park. There’s plenty in the way of buses around, and Central Station is well within walking distance also.
