Double Lucky Bar

The way I take photos, I can give any Perth small bar some ooshta, even if it was only 7:30 at night and we were the only ones there. With a crappy iphone’s camera no less! The Double Lucky Bar Leederville. Watch out, it’s eclectic. I think I saw a movie once called Eclectic Blue. Now that’s not a bad cameraphone pic.

    I thought Scandos were generally anti-bar, and anti-music?

    we went to this place some weeks ago. It was about 10:00 on a Friday and there was a bored woman sat on a folding chair in the alley outside the door who wanted to charge us to get in.

    we started walking away and she hastily told us that if we only wanted a quick drink we could just go in. The place was nearly empty, and seemed to consist of a disused warehouse painted black with some second hand furniture stolen from a gay bordello.

    drinks were expensive and the staff surly. doubly unlucky

    go to Clarence’s. much better. everyone’s new favourite place

    A clear not worst: I visited this establishment last Thursday, where the “Lucky Dip” was on. I was there at the gentle insistence of some of my confreres from Perth Poetry Club, of whom a couple were on stage performing some of their work. Heck, I even got up also to read two pieces, the first being a rendition of “Rebel Without A Paunch” by Ron Hitler-Barassi of TISM fame, as well as one of my own, a haiku titled “Cartesian Mirror”:

    Mirror on the wall
    What you see is what you are
    Cogito ergo…?

    I have found the Double Lucky to be conducive as a hangout for us arty wanker types, largely free of the bogan clientele who patronise the nearby Herp-E or Leedy, where the music isn’t overpowering, therefore allowing those of us for whom illuminating banter is food for the mind and spirit to be able to hold conversations easily enough, plus the fact that the bar has a wide variety of beverages to imbibe, beyond the usual me-too fare of those other watering holes in close proximity (where else could I have a choice of Islay single malts, or sloe gin?). Confers hope to me that Perth is not a complete basket case.

    I respectfully agree to disagree with you there, Skink. Not Worst at all.

      there’s a stage?

      are we talking about the same place?

      I agree its not as bad as the bogan doof-doof joints over the road, but if it is so quiet that it has to stage poetry readings to attract bearded malt-drinking conversationalists then it might still be missing some ooshta.

      three months have passed since I wrote my last post on this, which is a whole generation in small bar years. Bars can go from trendy to shut and then redecorated in that time.

    This place is a hole – xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. I am surprised if this place is still open in 12 months as it was virtually empty…..
