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.

The Brisbane Hotel connotes style and class. Infamous for its Sunday sessions, it's great for a night out among fantastic architectural surroundings in Perth. Amazing food and relaxed surroundings make The Brisbane the bar of choice for young professionals, tourists and backpackers alike.
The Brisbane has a wide range of tap beers, cocktails and wines both international and locally sourced. The menu is fairly priced given the caliber of the venue and features sharers, pizzas, mains and deserts.
This is a swanky bar; I would recommend changing your thongs for shoes and throwing a shirt on if you're visiting the Brisbane on a Friday or Saturday night. However, casual attire would be tolerated before 7pm most days and for the Sunday session. The beers are average prices for Perth, starting at around $9 a pint, which isn't too bad unless you're on a backpacker budget.
This place is famous across Perth for it's stand up comedy nights. These fall on a Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday and are priced from $5 upwards depending on the acts.
