Just weeks after the Port Admiral unveiled its $1 million makeover, brothers Nick and Alex Watson have opened the doors to their revamped restaurants the star of their $100,000 transformation of the Commercial Hotel.
The trendy small bar and eatery now has its own house beer –Watson Bros 1841 draught made in collaboration with SA craft brewer Prancing Pony – and a new German-inspired menu.
The menu, a nod to the Watsons’ German roots, contains “everything from sauerkraut to bratwurst”. Mr Watson said that with so many hotels in the Port Admiral, they were trying to carve out their own niche.
The Watson brothers took over the hotel in the year 2015 and have taken it from “an old school Port Adelaide pub” with set drinkers to a chic bar.
Mr Watson said that their vision for the hotel is to be a pub for everyone, where everyone feels welcome in that pub.
