Old Town Hall, Suva
A 1910 tourist guide proclaimed that “it is well lighted with gas, and has a good state drop scene and scenery. Here visiting companies perform, and local amateur shows, dances, bazaars are held. The Municipal Offices and the Council Chamber are on the ground floor, and the upper story is used as a museum, where many valuable island curios and antiquities are on view.”
Especially because of its balconies and ornamental iron, the Town Hall is recognized as one of Suva’s finest examples of colonial architecture.
These days, the building is the home of the Vineyard Palace Restaurant, located on the ground floor, while upstairs is the Indian restaurant, called Ashiyana. If you are an Indian food aficionado, don’t miss this eatery.
Behind the Old Town Hall is a very fine municipal Olympic-size swimming pool. It is open to the public, with an admission price of just F$3.
