Great news for Basso locals, the iconic Bassendean Hotel is set to get a major revamp, with renovations commencing this week.
The new venue will boast an increased 750 person capacity along with loads of new spaces for guests to enjoy including spacious courtyards, beer gardens, and lush outdoor bars to relax in, a state-of-the-art sports bar, and a bespoke playground for the kids to run loose on. Don’t fret though, the revamped hotel will still pay respect to the heritage and character of the 90+ year old building.
Along with all the aesthetic updates, you can expect a refreshed dining menu with Executive Chef Matt Powell injecting a fresh take on pub classics. Plus, keep an eye out for the woodfired pizza menu—not only are they installing a whole new kitchen downstairs, but they’ve also made room for a few woodfired pizza ovens.
As part of the reopening, they’ll also welcome Bassendean local Mark Patterson on board to run the revamped venue, who said it will be ARK Group’s most challenging yet rewarding venture yet.
“Living in the area myself, I’m excited for the development to inject some life into Old Perth Road and we’re looking forward to delivering a pub everyone can enjoy,” said Patterson.
With plenty of other quality hospitality venues under their belt—we’re talking Market Grounds, Dirty Nelly’s, Galway Hooker, Scarborough Beach Bar and more—you can trust the revamp is in good hands with ARK Group.
Keep your eyes peeled, The Bassendean Hotel is due to reopen early Summer 2022.
