What a gem | Subiaco’s Sapphire Bar may not have had the most well-behaved of crowds, but that's
all well and truly in the past. Under the new ownership of Emilie McHenry, things are already looking up. The
bar has had cosmetic changes, as well as all-new DJs, high-end tipples on the menu and better adorned,
friendlier patrons. With R&B and soul on Fridays, and funky dance tunes on Saturdays, it’s a great place to
boogie down. Emilie says they’re revamping and relaunching in January next year, but until then pop in for
cocktail of the month and fun theme nights. 298 Hay Street, Subiaco, (08) 9382 1099, thesapphirebar.com.au .
Rumour has it...
• Stage two of Claremont Quarter will include a
small wine bar – they're currently waiting on liquor
licence approval, but if it's all signed off, there'll be
a new watering hole in the laneway between Gugeri
Street and St Quentin Avenue.
• Perth city will get another small bar – currently in
construction, across from Wolfe Lane on Wolf Lane.
• The brains behind The Cabin and The Suite are
opening two more bars – one called BoHo Bar, a
wine bar smack bang on the main strip of the
Margaret River township with a luxury bohemian fit
out that promises to showcase the best of Margs
wines. The other will be an upmarket cabaret-style
venue in a basement on the fringes of Perth city. And
as if that’s not enough, they’re considering a third in
the next 12 months!
Coming up apples
That delicious apple-y carbonated drink
(technically known as cider) is absolutely
everywhere at the moment. Lighter and easier
on the stomach while retaining the fizz and frost
of beer, there’s little wonder so many are taking
to the apple. One to try is The Cidery, a brewer
based in Bridgetown which uses Pink Lady
apples sourced from Manjimup to give the brew
a local flavour. They’ve got a decent selection to
choose from – dry, sweet, soft, as well as
non-alcoholic ciders. The Cidery ciders are
available at La-Vigna, 302 Walcott Street,
Menora, (08) 9271 1179. If you’re down
Bridgetown way, however, you can visit The
Cidery itself. With warm, wooden interiors and
glass panels looking out on to their tranquil
surrounds, it’s a welcome country style refuge.

Cheers to you
The Duxton have kicked off their refurbishment
with renovations of their lobby bar. Looking
modern and vibrant, the new furniture has
doubled the bar’s seating. With beer, wine and
all of those other liquids we like, Lobby Bar is
a great post-work meeting place – and their
outdoor area facing St. Georges Terrace is
perfect for people watching. 1 St Georges Tce,
Perth, (08) 9261 8000, duxton.com.au.
