laura from Bondi
The Royal Hotel is an oasis of pub griminess in a sea of tacky Surfers Paradise style meat market pubs (ie The Bondi Hotel, Blue Chip and Beach Road). This pub bosts original decor from the seventies including lime green velour on the walls and an ash tray moat surrounding the bar. This is a pub in the style which has become endangered in the inner city these days ie walking in as a girl all eyes zoom towards you and an old fart says to another "check that sheila, she's alright". The bar features a jukebox and video screen with all the latest hits of the 80s. My best experience there would have to have been the time when we all gathered around the bar (old and young alike) to sing gunners songs and poison songs and had a heavy metal sing along. If you want to pick up chicks give this pub a miss, but if you want a night of feralising and experiencing carpet which sticks to your shoes then come to the Royal. No tourists here just geniune locals who have probably lived here since before anyone can remember. It is a gem
