The Verdict:

Opening this Wednesday on William St in Northbridge, Edward & Ida's is the newest venture from the award-winning crew behind Foxtrot Unicorn and Nieuw Ruin.

The new bar brings together more of what you love from their previous openings—like Foxtrot Unicorn's eclectic, old-world interiors and expert cocktails and Nieuw Ruin's elevated British-inspired pub eats and cracking wine offering—in a slick new two-storey package brimming with character.

Originally built in 1922, the venue takes its name from Edward & Ida Beeby, the trail-blazers who started The Patch Theatre here in between founding WA's Anti-Fascist League way back in 1930. Combining socialism, champagne and theatrics, they seemed like the ideal muses.

Edward & Ida's heritage interiors have been restored to reveal original hardwood floors and an ornate pressed tin roof on its ground floor. While the walls have been kitted out with endless antique booze signage to give the space a nostalgic pub vibe that pairs perfectly with the eats on offer. We're talking a rotating trio of pies (yes, like the famed Nieuw Ruin one), a joyfully big Cesar Schnitty, curried scotch eggs and a spin on your classic fish burger made with Patagonia Toothfish.

Downstairs beneath William St, the basement has been rightfully transformed into the dark and eccentric cocktail den it was always destined to be. Here you can sink into a red velvet lounge beneath walls of retro booze bottles and vintage taxidermy and order something snazzy from the cocktail list. With the crew they've assembled, you're in very good hands.

Edward & Ida's opens Wednesday 9 August at 269 William St, Northbridge.
