Everybody’s favourite drinking spot and late night hang out The Rochester Castle (The Rochy) has revealed that they will open their doors to the public for the first time since May 2014 in mid-March.

In an exclusive interview with Beat Magazine, it was revealed that the team reopening the iconic venue are the people behind Abbotsford establishment Dr MorseThe Aviary Hotel and The Vic Bar. Food will be served courtesy of Miss Katie’s Crab Shack who are currently based inside Public Bar in North Melbourne.

Sure this seems like a very different Rochy to what we knew, but it’ll be nice to see the boards come off the windows and hear the music coming from its speakers once more.

Long live The Rochester Castle!
