Please join us for an intimate evening at The Royale as we ring in the new year in Prohibition-era speakeasy style with an Aviation theme.Read More
Due to the demands of the job (say, closing the bar late, then arriving early the next day for set-up work), some Royale employees arrive to the occasional shift in less-than-full-freshness.
