The Verdict

Adam Paurini and Ryan Simpson (the masterminds behind Jungle Boy and Boston Sub) have decided to burst out of their Windsor bubble and spread some love to Richmond with their new cocktail bar, The Palm Royale. You might think a bar that’s fully decked out with palm trees, flamingos and stuffed parrots is going to be all kinds of tacky, but once you step inside, you’ll realise this little piece of Cuban paradise is anything but. It's like someone built a bar using nothing but Tropicana. 

Puff on a mini cigar as you ponder the solid range of Australian and imported beers, wines and ciders—Beer Cuba, Red Stripe and Kaiju Krush are on tap, as are Negronis and Coconut Cuba Libres—but definitely don’t leave before you’ve tried the Cuban Missile Crisis cocktail. With the kitchen officially open, you can now enjoy a Royale With Cheese and some Papas Fritas from 5pm until 1am, seven days a week. Kicking it in the Caribbean, right here in Richmond. Nice.
