THE HISTORIC Logan and Albert Hotel has undergone some cosmetic changes after the owner had the distinctive building repainted at the weekend.

The pub, which stood out on Brisbane Street with it’s bright pink and blue trim has been toned down a bit in preparation for sale.

Real estate agent Maree Richardson said the Logan and Albert was listed for freehold sale with Beaudesert Properties.

“The building is on a 1500 square metre block and was refurbished in 2007,” she said. 

“The pub is up for sale at $1.7 million, with inspections now available.”

The historic building was distinctive for its brightly coloured exterior.

Ms Richardson said there had been several expression of interest in the hotel and the owner had also undertaken minor refurbishments to the interior of the building.

The popular watering hole closed down in June but had been a part of the Beaudesert streetscape since 1934, when it was rebuilt after a fire destroyed it and several other buildings on Brisbane Street. 

The original Logan and Albert – known affectionately to locals and the L and A – operated since the late 1800s and became a community hub, in the early days even housing a bank and a barber shop.
