I've been freelancing for over 4 years in PR and journalism, I'm now based in Liverpool, England. You can see a body of my work on Yelp.com and on Liverpool.com. When not reviewing or interviewing I write comedy for TV.

Carnegie's is located bang in the center of Perth and is one of the most popular bars with locals and backpackers wanting to party until the early hours.
It's quieter in the daytime and boasts a large pub menu for the afternoons and a more sophisticated dinner time menu for diners that wish to peruse the restaurant area. They have recently opened a huge roof top bar, designed by a top architect and overlooking Perth CBD.
They have a large selection of beers wins and spirits as well as an extensive cocktail menu. Their prices are reasonable given that Perth is generally very expensive for alcohol and food. Staff are always cheerful and helpful and the atmosphere is always booming on weekend nights.
If you're planning on staying here most of the evening, get there fairly early on, as it is well known for long queues and this can be disappointing.
I loved this place until one day i was thrown out quite roughly by the bouncers. I couldn't believe it and i asked the really short bouncer guy why I had to be thrown out and he called a tall bat guy and said that because i'd spoken to a guy that was intoxicated that it was quite likely that i was intoxicated. I tried to pull out my phone and the tall guy virtually pushed me down the stairs before I could. If i had more evidence i would sue this place but the bouncers stopped me from doing it. definitely a no go/bring your lawyer
