The Precinct Hotel. Chances are, if you’ve driven down Richmond's Swan Street on a Friday or Saturday night, you’ve seen the line outside, and you’ve heard the music blasting. The Precinct Hotel is a modern Richmond institution for a reason - it’s insanely popular. Having occupied the same address since 1926, The Precinct has had some amazing upgrades since then.
Recently undergoing a massive refurbishment, this iconic venue has upped the ante once again delivering another amazing transformation. The semi-outdoor courtyard especially makes your afternoon beer in the sun a touch more classy, while retaining the sort of unpretentious air you’d want from a Richmond favourite.
Recently refurbished with urban industrial accents and timber themed with pops of greenery, this cosy sanctuary has all the trimmings for the perfect occasion; retractable roof, overhead heating and multiple screens including the addition of a 2.5m big screen providing the ultimate viewing experience in Melbourne’s biggest sporting precinct. Inside, there’s a front bar, space for bands, rooms upstairs, dining, and the aforementioned courtyard.
The brand new stage that hosts live entertainment every Friday and Saturday night has been freshly relocated with the ability and capacity to entertain the entire venue.
The Precinct sits along Swan Street, across the road from Richmond Station. Which of course, is just down the road from the MCG. So you’ll be mere minutes from the city, a stroll from the ‘G, and in the heart of Richmond’s nightlife.
