Christmas chaos might be just around the corner, but that doesn’t seem to be slowing the flurry of new openings happening around Perth. In fact, it seems lots of exciting new venues have been working extra hard to get their doors open in time for summer.
Here are all the new openings in Perth you need to check out in December.
Throwing the doors open just in time for summer is Dumbo Gelato; the latest project from the brains behind Si Paradiso and El Grotto. Bearing a fresh, daily-made menu of decadent flavours including vegan, gluten-free, organic and sugar-free options, this new Scarborough gem is going to blow your mind with some of their crazy flavour combinations, like their salted caramel inspired ‘cheese and vegemite’ number.
The Royal Hotel
Perth’s iconic Royal Hotel has recently re-opened with a new lease on life, having undergone extensive renovations that have brought this classic Aussie pub right up to date without losing any of the old-world charm. Open for lunch and dinner, expect pub fare with a modern twist and 14 staple and craft beer taps on rotation.
The juicy burger lords from Huxtaburger are coming at us with a new venue, this time taking up residence on Beaufort Street in Highgate. They’ll be slinging the same delicious menu as their CBD counterpart, including Alternative Meat Co. meat-free options.
The Deli on Clifton & Central
Where a neglected corner deli once sat is now home to The Deli on Clifton & Central; a cafe and soon-to-be wine bar from the team at Willing Coffee. The cafe is now open, serving up perfectly brewed coffee alongside a simple brekky menu, with the wine bar set to open in 2020.
The Beach House
Located at Foreshore Park in Eden Park Estate, The Beach House has been a long time coming but is finally open for business, bringing Byron Bay beach vibes to Perth’s northern ‘burbs. Aspiring to be as non-pretentious as possible the venue wants all to feel welcome, including those rocking standard beach attire of boardies and thongs. With 24 beers on tap and a fresh seasonal menu, this beachfront oasis is just what the locals have been asking for.
The Old Synagogue
Fremantle locals have been patiently awaiting the opening of The Old Synagogue after the development got off to a relatively slow start, and we’re happy to announce the doors are now open, just in time for summer. The heritage site is home to four unique hospitality venues, including a restaurant, beer & wine garden, brekky joint and cocktail bar.
Raine Square, Perth
From Japan to America and now to Western Australia, acclaimed Japanese bar and restaurant Furaibo is set to open their doors in Raine Square in late December. Renowned for their Izakaya-style sharing menu, Furaibo will showcase fine cooking techniques with a signature menu that features 30 different Kushiyaki skewers cooked on a specialty grill imported from Japan.
The team behind North Street Store (NSS) in Cottesloe has just announced they’re opening a huge bakery in North Fremantle and we couldn’t be more excited. Lachlan Bisset and Craig Stewart have secured a service model shop on the corner of Tydeman Road which they plan on transforming into a bakery, selling their award-winning bread straight out of the oven. Big Loaf Bakery is still very much a concept at this stage but it looks like the plans have been approved so if you want to keep up-to-date with the process, check out Big Loaf’s website here.
Beer Kitchen At Freo.Social
Beer Kitchen is a food concept with a conscious, entirely designed around beer, sustainability and community and will be the newest addition to the Freo.Social fold in mid-December. The Beer Kitchen team is a collective of local talent including chefs, brewers and butchers all united in their passion for food and beer and it’s an extension of the venue’s commitment to creating compelling experiences and spaces.
