The prime real estate that is the former Sirens at Williamstown Beach has been leased.
The windows are shielded with blue tarpaulins and something is afoot … though, despite my best efforts, I’m not quite sure what.
In a friendly fashion, I squeezed the young bloke I found there doing some renovations for the new proprietors but he remained admirably loyal and discreet.
But from what I did gather …
It seems the property will continue to operate under the Sirens name, it is open for event bookings and an open-to-the-public date is expected to be in late January.
The family/business moving into the space has a track record in the hospitality industry, one that makes them “quite capable” of doing a fine job at Willy Beach.
“Are they famous?” I asked.
“No,” came the reply.
That snuffs out the goss I’d heard just minutes before elsewhere in Williamstown – that Shannon Bennett was moving in.
Nothing to it, apparently.
But, boy, that’s some rumour …
