Beloved by its locals, The Old Fitzroy Hotel is a pub, brasserie and theatre all rolled into one. Housing an electric group of individuals – including some of Australia’s most famous playwrights and faces of the early Kings Cross – The perfect pub for every occasion. With its unique character and modern European inspired menu spearheaded by award-winning head chef Anna Ugarte-Carral, Old Fitz is the only place to be in Woolloomooloo.

The Old Fitz has successfully launched a myriad of events that appeal both to the local and extended clientele. Offerings have ranged from Live Music, Alfresco Day parties, Set Menu Dinners, Cabaret Drag Queen Nights and Theatre production opening & closing night events. The Old Fitz has a wonderful dichotomy and flexibility in the kinds of events it houses.

The Old Fitz is the only remaining theatre pub in Australia and has been operational for 150+ years. This provides the perfect platform to build this melting pot of theatre-goers, locals, foodies and newcomers.

As once described by famous playwright Louis Nowra "It was no wonder I was glad to be down in Woolloomooloo. The Old Fitzroy reminded me of how Kings Cross used to be. And though the pub has a real theatre, it's the cast of real-life characters that are the stars of this show." In his novel "Woolloomooloo; A Biography".
