The Royal Hotel is a tense look at what happens when two young women find themselves tending bar near a mining depot out in the Australian desert. With both a look at how alcohol can affect the patrons as well as the workers, The Royal Hotel is a cautionary tale in just about every way as it pertains to working a bar and the kind of trouble people get in when they’ve gone too far. As a bartender myself, I’ve seen firsthand how quickly things can get out of hand and how unexpectedly people can turn a situation hostile with only a small amount of alcohol. It can get scary fast, and I can only imagine how much more terrifying a bunch of drunk crazy men are to a woman who’s bartending.
