PERTH | 21st Amendment is a small bar in Perth that’s taken over a space just off the main cafe strip in Leederville. Named after the 1933 amendment to the US Constitution that repealed Prohibition, 21st Amendment is all about quality, local drinks in a relaxed, welcoming space. Exposed brick, polished concrete floors and timber furniture, plus a few plush couches, combine for a space that’s modern and trendy, and at the same time warm and hospitable.
I met owner Paul Clements, who left a career is sales to pursue his dream of owning a bar and loved his passion about the venue and the products that he serves. It was the bar’s craft beer offering that first got my attention, but there’s more than just beer here. Beer, wine, and spirits have a local focus, with most of what’s on offer being from independent brewers, wine makers, and distillers from across Australia. A particular focus is placed on Western Australian offerings.
For lovers of craft beer, there’s a rotating selection of nine brews on tap, along with an extensive and constantly changing can and bottle selection in the fridges. Tasting paddles of four small pours of your choice are also offered if you want to sample a few things.
There’s no kitchen on site, however the venue does have menus for nearby Jus Burgers and Ria. You can order and pay at the bar, with the food delivered to your table when it’s done.
