This small bar in Perth has been on our radar for a few months now but they’ve been so damn busy, it’s taken a while to get them in Openings. Quickly adopted by the starved-for-anything-decent inner city crowd, this cosy bar features an enviable courtyard at the end of a brick laneway. First-time bar owners Ryan Gregory and Carla Arevalo drew on Ryan’s 15 years in the hospitality industry and Carla’s Spanish heritage to dream up their homely tapas bar (with strong Victorian influences) with the help of Architect and Designer Brandon Cross. Heading up the bar is ex-Melbourne Bartender Cameron Emmerson who worked closely with the owners to develop the carefully conceived drinks selection. The list features a handful of wines with a strong international focus with over half available by the glass. There is also handy list of classic and contemporary cocktails, international bottled beers and a premium rail of first pour spirits including Belvedere, Chivas, Makers and Plymouth at just $9 a nip. On the food front there is a great mix of contemporary and classic tapas dishes constructed by local Chef Brenton Pyke in conjunction with the owners.
