The Hotel Riverina once existed on the corner of Grey and Clyde Streets, and provided a great venue in the mid-1990's. Bands initially played in the "Public Bar" on the Grey St entrance, although in its final year(s) the band venue moved to the Cook St entrance. After closing time, a popular stop for food was Stu's Piecart, imortalised in the song by Mobile Stud Unit, which was parked 50 metres down the road on Grey St. A beautiful heritage building, it was demolished for a shopping centre which houses The Clyde, an extremely dispiriting bar home to alcoholics and problem gamblers.
