Located in the former Oriental Hotel premises on the corner of Osmond Terrace and Magill Road, Republic is the newest addition to the booming bar scene in Norwood. Recently opened in December of 2013, you’ll find Republic just up the road from The Alma and The Maid. Republic features an extensive menu of meals, nibbles and cocktails to be enjoyed inside it’s spacious and modern dining room or outside in the decked out beer garden; we’re not saying The Oriental wasn’t nice, but this place really takes it a step further with it’s amazing new renovations! Sure to bring back The Oriental’s former loyals along with a swarm of newcomers, Republic will get very busy very early, so make sure you plan ahead. We have no doubt that Republic will become one of the newest hotspots outside of the city.

Had to leave because of the noise. Asked the DJ to tone it down and he said “What” he couldn’t hear me. The group of people I was with all complained about the inability to hold a conversation. Can’t see any reason to go back.
