Pirate Life Perth, Perth CBD

PERTH | The shenanigans of COVID lead to several delays, but finally Pirate Life Perth is here. The venue, housed in what was the old Sony Centre, is a lot bigger than you might think when you walk past. It’s got a 1,000 person capacity, spread across the main bar, a steakhouse, beer garden, and basement bar and private spaces.

I spent my time in the main bar, which is airy and spacious, with lots of natural sunlight and a big projector for sports. There’s 16 beers on tap – the core range and others brewed over at @piratelife.portadelaide, plus small releases brews that you can only get at the Perth brewpub. Tasting paddles are a set price for four of whatever beer you want, no restrictions, which is always appreciated.

For non beer drinkers, there’s a 120 strong wine list, spirits, and cocktails. You can also buy takeaway cans and get anything you want on tap, to go in a canimal.

Food wise, it’s good quality bar and pub favourites, plus more steakhouse like options, cooked over fire on a josper grill.

After all of these years, it’s great to see Pirate Life open a venue in the city where it all began. A great addition to the city’s beer scene.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
