Parts of it will be. Parts of it won’t be. Parts of The Espy haven’t been seen by the public for over 60 years! We’ll be opening up every square centimetre of Hotel Esplanade’s five historical levels, and filling them full of music, arts, cocktails, beers, food, fun and laughter. We seriously can’t wait to show you!
