On Broome Street, RPM Becomes the ‘Emma Peel Room’
Within the last week or so, six-year-old RPM Bar on Broome Street underwent an identity change. The corner bar is now called the Emma Peel Room.
The changes appear cosmetic only, as we’re told that ownership remains intact. That much is also confirmed by public records at the State Liquor Authority showing Matthew Kelly as sole principle.
Emma Peel is a fictional spy character popularized by Diana Rigg in the British 1960s adventure television series, The Avengers. The mural on the Allen Street front pays tribute to that legacy.
Kelly, also the proprietor behind the nearby Marshall Stack, opened RPM in September 2013 after purchasing Lolita several months earlier.
