I'm a freelance writer and food and booze enthusiast. You can find me at any of the small bars around Perth. Visit my blog www.alicemod.com.au for all your food, venue and arts and culture needs

It's only been open for two/three weeks, but sometimes you go somewhere and you just know that it's right for you. The Old Laundry is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and has hit the Angove St strip like a punch in the face. It's busy, the food is good, the booze is great and the staff make you feel at home from the second you walk through the door.
I love the layout and how bright it is. Its high ceilings are incredible and it's spacious and airy without looking vast and empty. Breakfasts and lunches are busy but evenings are bustling with people. Groups of people; couples; people under 25 and people over 50; it's a venue that suits almost anyone.
The outside area is beautiful. The old boiler is a really nice touch and ties the space together nicely. On top of it being a great looking venue, the booze is great. The wines are awesome, the cocktails are made by absolute rockstars and the coffee is freaking awesome. When I'm there I want to sit there for hours, sipping on coffees and wines, talking and people watching. It's new and bright and bubbly, but it's done something awesome, it makes you want to stay.
