Nundah’s The Royal Undergoes a Million-Dollar Makeover

Nundah’s Royal Hotel is set to receive a million-dollar upgrade, with renovations now underway. The revamp will include the venue’s bistro, terrace, front bar and alfresco area, as well as the introduction of a new first-floor entertainment space.

The Royal, located on Sandgate Road, becomes the latest historic venue to undergo a major revamp with Australian Venue Co overseeing its transformation. Constructed in 1888, the venue has played a key role in the social life of Nundah locals for many years. 

The renovations will offer a refreshed bistro and terrace, a new first-floor entertainment space, and a revitalised front bar and alfresco area. The new first-floor entertainment space is where live bands and comedians will take centre stage, performing in front of up to 200 guests. The space will also be available for private events.

Meanwhile, the bistro and terrace are transforming into a family-friendly dining space that can accommodate up to 120 people, complete with marble-look tables, checkerboard floors, and wooden accents. The front bar and al fresco area are being revitalised too, with space for up to 80 patrons and TV screens showing live sports. 

Whilst the venue will remain open, patrons planning a visit to The Royal should note that the bistro section is temporarily closed and scheduled to reopen in mid-May. The sports bar section follows and will remain closed until mid-June.

The gaming will then undergo a week-long renovation and will also reopen in mid-June. The upstairs entertainment room is the last to receive the upgrades, however, the exact reopening date is yet to be announced. 

The revamped venue will be relaunched as Royal Hotel in mid-July, with an exact date to be announced later.
