The Lansdowne Hotel was opened in 1932, and was quickly filled with ratbags, miscreants, tear-aways, hoods, scum-bags, thieves, bent cops and others of similar persuasion.
Its place in the history of Sydney music was destined to be a wrapped up in 2015 with its closure. However, two idiot friends with a passion for music and taking risks thought the old girl had a few tricks to pull yet.
The Lansdowne Hotel was re-opened in June 2017.
It has no plan to close its doors ever again.
