Paul has had a career spanning 17 years in the hospitality industry gained managing small and large venues in regional, suburban and city locations.  Prior to taking up his new role, Paul was the General Manager of Grand Hotel Mount Morgan, a tourist gold mining town in Central Queensland; General Manager of Bar Cleveland in Surry Hills; and Licensee of the Harlequin Inn in Pyrmont.

Palace Hotel Haymarket is a popular dining and entertainment venue for Sydney’s business crowd, theatre goers attending the neighbouring Capitol Theatre and tourists in the CBD.

A major refurbishment undertaken by the venue’s owner Metro Hospitality Group some years ago, transformed the hotel into a stylish and contemporary venue, while still paying homage to the heritage of the area, particularly the old Palace Hotel which once occupied the site.

Paul said he was very excited to be appointed General Manager of Palace Hotel Haymarket, an iconic venue in the heart of Sydney’s entertainment district.

“Palace Hotel has gained a reputation for live local music supporting Sydney’s home grown musicians on Friday and Saturday nights.  I am keen to continue this tradition, embracing all Sydney has to offer in the way of live acts,” Paul said.

“My other focus will be on continuing to offer our customers quality fresh creative food at an affordable price.”

The Palace Hotel has one of the largest craft beer ranges in Sydney, with over 64 craft beers available on tap and in the bottle, and an all-day bar menu.  The Brasserie is open on Monday from 12 noon till 9pm and from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am until 9.00pm.
