Few things are better than a prolonged afternoon catching up with mates over the week that was. Enter Bill’s Bar and Bites.
Relaxed, shabby chic venue that’s understated by day and hyped by night.
Lazy afternoon with mates, daytime hideaway, nibbles before the nightclub.
The brick interior and unique use of the space - From secluded stage to intimate courtyard, there’s more to this place than first meets the eye.
A mellow hangout on the corner of Leederville’s main drag, this is a quirky alternative to your everyday pub and a unique use of industrial space.
Once your eyes adjust to the shadowy interior you’ll notice how creatively every last corner has been used - There’s a multitude of alcoves to fill and they’ve done it all with panache.
With a fireplace in one corner and stage in another, graffiti on the red brick walls and a glass walkway sealing off the courtyard, there’s a cubbyhole to suit every kind of meeting - From courtship to corporate.
Little finishing touches add character to the place, flowers are packed into bottles marked ‘poison’, and lads will be happy to hear this place pours a full and hearty pint - Something that can be a rarity amongst the current wave of trendy bars.
The menu is short but sweet, a selection of picky bits with a pinch of variety but not enough to cause a group debate over what’s for lunch. It’s worth noting they do a fantastic weekday special - A cheese or charcuterie board with two glasses of wine for $25. Sign us up!
As afternoon tumbles into night, a different kind of crowd starts to roll in. With neighbouring hotspot Babooshka Bar opening its doors upstairs, the hipster kids and glam girls find their way to the bar and rounds of cider are replaced with prosecco.
With your glad rags on, this is actually a pretty rad spot for an evening bevvy or two before moving onto somewhere more raucous.
