Staying overnight in a pub was once a rite of passage, especially if you were travelling regionally. Now, a new hospitality group wants to bring that rite of passage back to the big smoke.

Public Hospitality Group is transforming old and iconic inner city pubs into multi-level dining, drinking and accommodation experiences.

The group was formed by one-time investment banker Jon Adgemis and has former Crown Resort heavyweight Peter Crinis at the helm.

Their current portfolio consists of 15 venues with Darlinghurst’s The Strand being the flagship.

The 99-year-old pub opened up its new accommodation last weekend while the reinvigorated The Strand Bistro, which serves classic French dishes and is led by executive chef Alex Kavanagh, has been operational and extremely busy for the last few months.

“Growing up, I used to stay in pubs in the country. But for years publicans stopped using levels two and three and just focused on the hospitality,” Crinis said.

“But there is something about staying at a pub which provides you with an instant community.”

The Strand features 17 bespoke accommodation rooms, a library and common work and kitchen spaces. And guests won’t have to share a bathroom, as all rooms have an ensuite.

“Our accommodation has to be good enough that people pay the right rate for it in a highly competitive market and it is.

“Our signature difference is that the French bistro almost becomes our guests’ extended lounge room,” Crinis said.

In coming weeks the hotel will also reveal Sydney’s newest rooftop bar.
