Edward & Ida’s, Northbridge

PERTH | Edward & Ida Beeby, the duo founded the Patch Theatre in 1939, and were known for their passionate support of the arts and outgoing personalities. The heritage listed Northbridge building which housed the theatre is now home to bar, Edward & Ida’s, named in the duo’s honour.

The bar is from Dimitri Rtshiladze (Foxtrot Unicorn, Nieuw Ruin), and continues his run of opening venues with a great vibe, service, food, and drinks. Edward & Ida’s is inspired by the classic pubs of Australia, leaning into a retro vibe with plenty of nostalgic posters, fittings, and fixtures. There’s a long wooden bar at the front of the narrow space, with stools and tables giving way to a rear section, and then an outdoor courtyard. Head downstairs, and you’ll find a cosy speakeasy-like space, with a second bar, comfy couches and a very impressive selection of vintage alcohol bottles displayed on the walls.

On tap you’ll find Aussie craft beer along with old favourites like Weihenstephaner Hefe and Guinness. There’s a small wine list of around 12 bottles covering a variety of styles, most of which are available by the glass. For cocktails, it’s fun creations and twists on the classics. Try the ‘Riot Punch’, which blends Alize, Hennessey VS, lychee, lemon, and lemonade.

For food, it’s chef . Pub-focused far with a twist is what the food menu is all about, with executive chef Blaze Young taking care of the menu. A scotch egg is perked up with curry spice and served with black walnut aioli, while a riff on the Fillet-O-Fish features Patagonian toothfish and chunky tartare. The beef an Guinness pie, served with a bone marrow chimney, Guinness gravy, and chips, is a must order.
