Feros’ JDA Hotels to open Union Place Hotel to the public in Jannali ‘late July’.

Jannali will welcome an all-new, new-build, ‘Downtown Chicago-inspired boutique pub’ in late July, according to a spokesperson for JDA Hotels, owned and operated by the local publican Feros family.

“We’re very excited for Union Place Hotel to be our first foray into the hotel industry in the Sutherland Shire area,” said John Feros, CEO of JDA Hotels. “We are looking forward to bringing a vibrant space to the local community, a place where they can enjoy the sleek, modern bar and bistro areas, experience the premium sports bar facilities and also relax with a meal on the outdoor terrace.”

The new-build American-Italian inspired hotel, near to the Jannali train station, will feature a modern American sports bar and bistro with an alfresco dining terrace. Inside, the owners promise booth seating against a backdrop of industrial exposed brick, walnut and brass elements.

The Feros family are also behind the Highfield in Caringbah.

Designed by hospitality architect Paul Kelly Design, the venue has an industrial and exposed metal fit-out throughout, softened by indoor plants along the walls, ceilings and behind booth seating areas. The centrepiece bar area will be framed by custom blue-stained timber panelling and brass halo lighting.

On tap will be a full spectrum of pale ales, while the drinks list will feature American beers and premium wine, spirits, whiskies and cocktails.

A spokesperson for JDA reveals the venue is “inspired by the quintessential ‘red sauce’ Italian dining experience in Downtown Chicago,” with the menu promising to be a fusion of pub classics including burgers and sandwiches along with more than 10 varieties of 18-inch pizzas.

Union Place Hotel will feature head chef Kirsten Baker (ex Nonna Grazia Guida and Merivale’s Sydney venue the Vic on The Park).

Union Place Hotel is due to open to the public in late July.
