The Hotel William Has Had A Makeover & Has A Fancy Rooftop Bar Now! Jiwon Kim/ Broadsheet

The Hotel William has always been a good old-fashioned Aussie pub, with a bright-green neon sign out the front, making you want to head in for a beer or two.

Now, the venue has reopened after undergoing some refurbishments and man, it's fancy!

The venue has had a $5 million makeover and is reintroducing itself as Hyde Park House, a four-story location brought to you by Warren Livingstonethe publican behind Waverley’s Charing Cross.

Livingstone told Broadsheet that "we wanted to create a place that catered to the neighbourhood. Especially in East Sydney, I think people are probably fed up with the idea of big super-clubs and long lines.”

The ground level's burgundy carpet and pokies have been removed to make way for a new, polished pub called The Public Bar which is based on the building's original 1919 design.

The bar has 16 beers on tap and once you've wet your whistle, you can head up to the second level of the building and enjoy The Club Lounge, a private function space that fits around 250 people.

The Lounge will be open in July, as will the building's new rooftop bar, Slim's!

The bar has beautiful views of Hyde Park and Sydney's CBD and also features a new Japanese restaurant where you can grab some extremely pretty sushi, sashimi and sizzling dishes!

The rooftop's retro decor is perfect for a sunny night out and will be THE place to go when summer kicks off!

So, go and check out the new Hyde Park House for a brand new pub experience!
