The Alex…coming soon!

Last year, Merivale saved the Alexandria Hotel from the wrecking ball and will soon reopen the doors to one of Sydney’s most beloved pubs.
Known affectionately as ‘The Alex’, the Sydney icon faced redevelopment as a residential block after developers snapped it up in 2015 - plans that were met by an unprecedented campaign by local supporters desperate to save the historic venue.
Now following Merivale’s purchase, the future of the Alexandria Hotel as a local hero and treasured meeting place is assured.
Justin Hemmes, Merivale CEO, said: “Institutions like this must be preserved, they reflect our history and help shape our culture - especially when they mean as much to their local community as The Alex does. This outcome is a great reward for the passion and character of the community who fought so hard to save this property where a hotel has stood for almost 150 years”.
