Brookfield Place is primarily a gregarious office tower dominating a changing skyline across Perth. But for all its ugliness spanning 45 floors into the sky, a world class entertainment precinct has been born at ground level below, with an amalgamation of new bars and restaurants situated within a 100 metre radius of each other.
It’s a melting pot of old world heritage and striking new architecture. Here’s a taste of what you can find:
- The Trustee – Located within the old Public Trustee building, you’ll find a blend of modern Australian food with a diverse range of wines – check out the impressive glass wine cellar which takes centre stage of the ground floor.
- The Heritage Brasserie – Modern French cuisine with a feel of authenticity and charm. I love the food here, although it is pricey. Beer choice is the Samuel Smith, Imperial Stout for something different….. But I’d stick to the wines for some amazing local and international picks.
- LaFayette – Quirky semi-underground bar (full review available)
- Print Hall – Located in the original building of The West Australian Newspaper. The current bar has evolved from the original reception area. Amazing architecture and re-fit… worth a look.
- Bobs Bar (roof top of Print Hall) – Excellent example of roof top drinking, following the lead of some Melbourne counterparts. No real food here, just the perfect spot for a cold pale ale on a warm summer night.
