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 Universal showcases live jazz and blues music every night of the week. It's an incredibly popular bar and is located very near to Perth train station and CBD. Universal is famous for its cocktails, great live music and great food. It's always busy, and the music is always great.
Universal has three bars, including an intimate terrace bar which can be hired to host cocktail functions, birthdays and corporate events. This is a prime location to have a warm up dance on a big night out, or to dance away until the early hours.
The bar staff are all trained as mixologists, lending an expert hand to creating customers perfect cocktails every time. The menu includes the likes of share platters and oysters for bar snacking, through to fish and chips, steaks and pizzas for those who want a full meal.
The prices are reasonable and the food is great quality and value for money. The cocktails and bottled beers are also reasonably priced given the level of entertainment that Universal provides with its live music shows every night.
