A vibrant and lively New York inspired bar is the new kid on the block to Mount Lawley’s buzzing Beaufort Street strip.
Opening in October last year, Peaky Bodega serves up oversized American meals, an extensive drinks list and old school RnB tunes until late.
The funky venue offers a laidback front bar for balmy afternoons, while the dance floor opens up for late nights.
Peaky Bodega Venue Manager Joel Westlake said the bar had proven popular since opening.
“It’s a comfortable and fun environment and the venue is a point of difference to Perth’s bar scene,” Mr Westlake said.
Peaky Bodega’s Manhattan Fridays are perfect for after work drinks with $10 cocktails, while the venue is the new go-to for Sunday sessions with $8 pints, $7 spirits, $9 vodka Red Bull, $25 buckets of Bud and DJ beats from 7pm.
The funky name takes inspiration from New York corner stores, while the bar’s interior features industrial elements like exposed brick, graffiti art and neon lights.
“A Bodega is a New York style deli that serves booze and food,” Mr Westlake said.
The duo behind the venue are ex Fremantle Dockers players Peter Bell and Byron Schammer, who have breathed fresh life into the building that had been vacant for over a year.
“The locals are very supportive and happy to see a new business come in here,” Mr Westlake said.
The drinks menu is straight out of New York with delicious fruity cocktails and imported American beers, including Bud Light, Goose Island and Brooklyn Lager.
The food menu serves up classic New York favourites likes oversized pizza slabs, double beef patty cheeseburgers and fried chicken to name a few.
Open late night and serving food right through, Peaky Bodega is a new competitor for Perth’s nightlife.
“We have our late license until 3am and offer food all the way through,” Mr Westlake said.
“It’s not just a nightclub either, we offer a chilled club bar before turning into a night club later on.”
The venue is set to offer more of what we love with exciting plans in the works heading forward.
“Down the line we are thinking about opening more for mornings and lunches and opening a coffee window,” Mr Westlake said.
