A well-known hotelier from Sydney, Andrew Lazarus, has recently gained one of Australia’s most iconic pubs in Newcastle.

The popular venue at 99 Frederick St. was formerly controlled by the Bale and Twohill families for the past 40 years.

Last year, Andrew took control alongside his business partner, Hamish Coxon, after new management.

They made various changes, including installing craft beer taps alongside their signature cocktails on offer during happy hour.

Andrew Lazarus manages different Sydney hotels like Bondi Junction’s Eastern Hotel Group (EHQ) or El Toro Motor Inn near Warriewood Bay.

They have entertainment options for all ages, from live music performances every night starting at 8 pm – just what this generation needs when they return home from work.

In a recent press release, Peter Lazarus was announced as the new Director of Eastern Hotels Group.

His appointment will see him take over day-to-day operations at Beach Hotel.

Renovation by Deane Moore and Mike Wheatley from Knight Frank in 2017 made it one of Australia’s unique “Newcastle Trophy Assets”.

The iconic circa 1946 brick building was a popular spot for the locals since its opening.

The 1858sqm Art Deco style property has wide verandas with views of Merewether’s surf beach and is only minutes from Newcastle’s CBD.

While enjoying a rich coffee or glass of wine, one can enjoy the view as they catch some rays during warm summer days.

The Andrew Lazarus family is considering refurbishment for now.

They also plan on engaging community members before deciding about what will happen to them in the future.

Long-term owner John Twohill has mixed feelings about this sale.

He has had such significant memories here — including meeting many new friends over time while running what was initially known as “Queen Vic”.
