Sydneysiders, particularly those who frequent the CBD night scene may have heard of the Royal Sovereign Hotel…or, as it’s more popularly known, Darlo Bar. Turns out the name of the hotel has remained the same for over a hundred years. My third great grandmother, Emmeline Matilda Stevens was the manager of it from 1904 to 1908.
The original building, that I believe Emmeline would have been working in was demolished and rebuilt a little after 1925.
I am not sure if I’ve ever been to Darlo Bar, but I’d be interested to check it out now!
