The Terminus Hotel Pyrmont, as featured in The Australian (theaustralian.com.au)
It was the first public house in Pyrmont. And today, The Terminus hasn’t lost its spirit of vivaciousness — its downstairs bar and Vera’s cocktail lounge is one of the area’s most popular spots for date nights and delicious bites. But unlike some pubs that refer to their cramped lodgings as boutique hotel-worthy, The Terminus’ elegant rooms are bright, airy and beautifully outfitted with artful decor.
The hotel was built in 1841, and from its origins as the original Coopers Arms to its days as a popular bikie haunt, there’s no disputing its walls have been privy to some serious debauchery. Sitting on one of its plush bar stools, you’d never know. But those secret histories form a big part of its allure.
