The Four in Hand Pub

At times a quiet corner pub, at others a raging centre of neighbourhood social life, the Four in Hand is a historical institution of local pub culture in Paddington, Sydney. The owner was struggling with a constantly changing regulatory environment through the Covid era starting in early 2020 and required a site that could update it’s opening hours, menus and rules of attendance on a very regular basis.

The site design had to preserve that institutional status while at the same time give the impression of moving with the times, offering contemporary fare for its loyal customers and reflecting the pride its owners had in being a vibrant component of Sydney’s inner-city life.
