Venue Operations Manager | Royal Bondi

The Venue

The Royal Bondi, an iconic watering hole since 1907, this place knows how to have a good time. The front bar at The Royal gives you everything you’d expect from a classic local, and we’ve thrown in few extras, because, why not? If you’re keen to make the party happen, choose some crowd-pleasers from our digital take on the old-school jukebox.. Then you can make your way out the back and enter our casual Italian eatery Totti’s. Headed up by exec chef Mike Eggert, Totti’s is all about enjoying simple, delicious food with your favourite people.
