The Rozelle site of the former White Bay Hotel may trade as a hotel again pending its sale at auction tomorrow (May 18).

The White Bay Hotel was built in 1916 but had not traded since 1992 when it was gutted by fire on September 5, 2008.

The hotel was demolished after being declared unsafe the next day.

However the 650 square metre site still has a hotel license attached to the land, which includes gaming entitlements.

Hotel broker for agents Manenti Quinlan & Associates, Adam Spencer-Carr, said he expected the site to sell for between $2 and $3 million.

Since its closure the pub was best known as the home of some of Sydney's most visible and lucrative billboards, with estimates that it generated at least $250,000 a year.
