St Kilda Arts Community arrived at the Grand Re-Opening of St Kilda’s much loved Esplanade Hotel (The Espy) last Friday night and the patronage was spectacular. I do believe Uber did well that night as it seemed every glam guy and doll came along to bask in this glorious celebration.
The renovations are spectacular, the resonating sound of music is spot on and by all appearances the many bars and kitchens have hit the spot for patrons old and new. All bars and stair cases were awash with staff that ensured everyone got a drink and a good look at this work of art in a safe and orderly fashion. We did not make it to the Gerswhin Room that night to hear the LIVE MUSIC. That is something to look forward to. Our suggestion is that you go and check it out yourself as the various bars and kitchens cater for all ages, tastes and styles.
