The Venue

The Rose of Australia is an Erskineville institution. Owned and operated by the Leach Family for over 25 years, this is a pub run by a local family for the local community. A place you can meet and know the publican. Howard's Cantina is located on the first floor of the Rose of Australia Hotel. The Cantina has a casual atmosphere with contemporary design that makes the space perfect for catching up with friends or celebrating special moments. With a mix of covered outdoor seating and inside space there you'll be spoilt for choice to set your own vibe.
