Worst Pub Design/Architecture
How could you make one of those god-awful Ettamogah pubs worse? Put it in Morley. However not even Morleynians, not known for their good taste (think Galleria and Ugg boots with miniskirts) would be seen dead in the place on Walter Road, sending it broke.
From the stats I see there are quite a few international visitors to The Worst of Perth. To explain, The Ettamogah Pub was a cartoon Australian pub which used to appear in a rather shabby magazine, The Australasian Post. The cartoon pub featured numerous “amusing” features, including an old truck stuck on the roof. Some braniac had the idea to turn the pub into reality and franchise them. It would be a bit like turning your local watering hole into a fake Moe’s Tavern with inflatable Homers and Barneys. Pity the investors but also the publicans who had to turn up to these deserted freakshows everyday. Unfortunately it is hard to disguise an ex-Ettamogah, apart from taking the truck off the roof, but here is the attempt. Shenannigans Bar and Grill. It is also nice how the building was so well blended into the salmon brick building next door. There is another of these monstrosities in Cunderdin East of Perth. I think it is also going broke, as not surprisingly no-one will go inside.
