The refurbished Rob Roy Hotel Newtown Workers Club opens today, at least according to the Gertrude St local who saw me looking in the window yesterday. Staff at the new Cutler and Co bar and restaurant a few doors up (which opened on Tuesday) told me when I dropped in to enquire about them that the Newtown Workers Club has been quietly open for a couple of nights already.

I’m going to drop in soon to check it out (and do the same at Cutler and Co). The revitalisation of the western end of Gertrude St has begun. Nothing seems to have been done to the exterior of the Rob Roy however, which could benefit from some attention.

      Hi Sylvia, I love Shop Sui and I have been meaning to do a story on it for ages… so yes I will come in and say hello! I don’t have a mailing list, but you can subscribe to the RSS feed. I would like to build one of those fancy subscription email list thingies that sends email summaries of recent posts to subscribers, but it looks rather complicated putting all the pieces together. And I’m not sure if everything I need is freely available. One day…
