Traversing design, music, art, food and booze: a chance to hear first-hand the inspiration behind the restoration of this beloved and historic St Kilda hotel.
Lovingly known by locals as The Espy, Hotel Esplanade is a 140-year-old iconic seaside pub.
“I’ve never seen anything like the way Melbournians are connected to a building. It’s not the business, it’s not the people, it’s actually this building. Everyone has an Espy story and everyone is connected to it somehow in some way.” Doug Maskiel, Hotel Esplanade Director
Tours will be led by one of the owners behind the mammoth task of breathing life into the previously run down old pub: Matt, Andy, Doug or Tom.
“It is impossible not to be impressed by their commitment to their custodial role of such a beloved building.” The Age, 2018
