The Prince Consort
The Prince Consort Hotel building on the corner of Wickham and Brunswick (which over the years has housed The Elephant Arms Hotel, The Foundry and more) underwent a massive heritage refurbishment in 2020, reopening under the historic hotel’s original name, The Prince Consort. The is home to a collective of bars and eateries – The Prince Consort and Friends – brought to life by new owner Tilley & Wills Hotels, who owns the likes of Greenwood Hotel and Oxford Art Factory in Sydney. Greaser continues to operate in the cellar of the building, and is joined by a further seven venues all offering completely different vibes. On the ground floor, The Prince Consort nods to the building’s rich history with a classic English gastropub offering, spilling out to the open-air The Garden Bar. An ornate staircase leads guests up to luxe supper club La La Land, while further down the antler-shadowed hallway you’ll find The Bowie Rooms – which we hear need to be seen to be understood. Music will still be a huge part of the building, with The Yorke Suites on the top level set to provide space for music markers and creatives. At the heart of hotel is The Naughty Corner and finally, 400 Rabbits Cantina will take you on a Los Cabos-inspired taco and tequila adventure. Culinary hotshot Jack Powlay has been appointed The Prince Consort’s head chef and is in charge of The Prince Consort’s menu, which includes contemporary Mexican eats at 400 Rabbits Cantina, La La Land’s shared tapas plates and The Prince Consort’s own gastro-pub-inspired offering.
