Orbanie or albanie. We use both in Australia but in this case, it is orbanie. There was a gay pub called The Albany in Sydney's Oxford Street where we may have spent some time in the 1990s.
However this Albany is in Toorak Road West, South Yarra and was once a private home then turned into hotel accommodation quite a long time ago, I think as what looks to be 1960s addition was attached to the hotel. The addition has been demolished and I have no idea what will be built on the site. Obviously the former Victorian period home will remain.....ah, well, it would be a crime if it did not.
Far left is that damn St Kilda Road high rise again.
To the right in the photo was the now demolished addition.
