Originally built in the late 19th Century, The Prince Maximillian Hotel burnt to the ground and was rebuilt in Art Deco style in the late 1920's.
It has undergone many transformations in the years that followed, leaving only a few original features.
New owners Michael Broderick and Grant Philpott wanted to create a relaxed pub environment that was fresh, friendly and inviting. As the pub will ultimately be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the interior was kept bright and casual. The clients were keen to pay hommage to the history of the building, without going down the track of a restoration.
A striking white herringbone tile pattern on the walls was inspired by original herringbone tiles on the floor or the bar. Playfully bold axminster carpet in green, orange and red provides a burst of colour throughout, and an impressive 7 metre long deco-inspired bar is both serviceable and the central design feature of the entire venue.
