Get excited, team! Perth's coolest new bar, The Resident, has moved into Nedlands, bringing with it delicious libations and scrumptious food cooked up by an ex Jamie Oliver chef in stunning surrounds.
Set to be THE Sunday sesh spot from here forth, The Resident is easily one of Perth’s most beautiful venues, featuring plenty of white on white, gorgeous arched windows, vaulted ceilings and a glorious boab tree in the beer garden out back.
The menu offers health conscious, Mediterranean-style fare from share foods, pizzas and side bites to bigger plates you can devour all by yourself. We can’t get enough of their mushroom san choy bao (which is also vegan), pulled lamb shoulder with roasted pumpkin and crispy red rice, and their crispy red rice and faro salad with broccolini and goji berry dressing. Oh, and they serve halloumi fries which are obviously a must.
Cocktails we love include the Just Beet It (smoked rum, Campari, beetroot, a lemon twist, sugar and aquafaba—just google that last one ok), the Pesca Spritza (peach-infused Aperol and prosecco with an orange twist) and the Sea Breeze (West Winds Sabre, Fever-Tree Tonic, dill and a lemon twist) which is actually spritzed with sea mist—ultimate Sunday sesh drink? We think so!
The 20-odd beer taps feature boutique beers and they are pouring natural and organic white and red wines, but the pièce de résistance is the cocktail tap with delicious concoctions that will change monthly. They’ve also got cider on tap and just about anything else you could ever be thirsty for.
Perched on the second floor (where a second bar awaits), a DJ will be spinning all of the hottest new tracks on Sundays and the crew here are planning on throwing plenty of parties and exciting events for all of you Perthlings to enjoy.
Register here to stay tuned for news of The Resident’s first event, a white party to celebrate their launch on Sunday 13 August. It’s set to be a cracker Sunday sesh, with complimentary drinks and tastings from 1 to 8pm.
