For me, the thought of going back to school fills me with dread. Dredging up all those memories is not something that is on the top of my list. This classroom however, is the complete opposite of any school encounter you may imagine. First up, there's alcohol. Need I say more?
Located in North Perth, it's perfect in the fact that it's situated away from all the other clubs and pubs. Decked out in the theme of a primary school, a couple of drinks here will leave you feeling wistful for the old school days of jump rope and kiss chasey.
Sitting on seats straight out of a school bus and ordering from a menu made to look like a scrapbook, it's hard to believe having ever left school. Fortunately, the food available is far from the canteen lunches we are used to. Delectable flavours to satisfy any palate will leave your mouth watering and asking mum and dad for more lunch money. Their amazing cocktails and drinks will make you glad you are old enough to drink. The drinks menu even includes one beverage that is locked in a lunchbox and 'smoked' for extra flavour.
"Bartender! I'll have my drink smoked not stirred please"
Gutted lockers behind the bar showcase the array of beverages and spirits available and the biggest collection of retro and vintage lunch boxes you've ever seen.
Most important, it's the little touches that leave you feeling like you're in an actual classroom. There are whiteboards where you can write lines, hopscotch on the floors and even a French lesson in the toilet.
By far, the best feature is the bookcase. One push and you're in another room. It's like a scene straight out of Hogwarts. Leading into a room made up to look like an school professor's office with leather chairs, you'll either feel relaxed and right at home or guilty, reminiscing about the days of being sent to the Dean's office.
