Contrary to reports earlier in the week, iconic Sydney live music venue the Annandale Hotel isn’t going to be turned into flats, nor will it sit abandoned as a sad indictment of gentrification (like the Hopetoun).

It’s been bought,but by a publican, so we can expect more awesome beery nights of amplified rawk. Leichhardt Mayor Darcy Byrne said saving the Annandale is the first step in plans to turn that stretch of Parramatta Rd into a live music precinct – fantastic news, but too late for former Annandale owners Dan and Matt Rule.
