Small bars reach end of days

If there needed to be any sign that the small bars craze had reached rapture point, then see this. Could someone really call it The Boheme? (aka “Teh ‘Heme”) You’d think it would be hard to go worse than the name Bobby Dazzlers. The whole Wentworth Plaza redevelopment is looking pretty sick. The barest sliver of facade is finding it difficult to conceal a a monster of concrete behind. The Boheme. Kill me now. Oh god, there’s even a fucking accent on the e. By Bento.

    Probably go down a treat with the young uns. I would have preferred Le Boheme’.


  2. skink says:

    why do we get ‘Le Boatshed’ but ‘The Boheme’ ?

    no doubt it will become known as La Bogane

    that’s if the Raine Square development ever gets finished.

    who’s the developer? oh yes…

    Seems like a fine place to show off my new mustache.


  4. skink says:

    oh, is that the wrong accent? difficult to tell from distance but it looks like acute rather than grave

    I for one am saddened that Bobby Dazzler’s has closed.
    It was delightfully kitsch and reliable the few times I walked in.
    Same with Horsefeathers and…. whatever that place was tucked around the back of Raine Square (The Garage?).

    At least Sasella’s is safe, right? And Hickey’s?

    Perth is losing all of it’s “classics”.

    (In case anyone hasn’t mentioned it, the Great Wall of Maylands, was demolished two days ago.)

    utopia? is there some form of night club planned as well?


  7. skink says:

    fabulous piece by Shallow Spice on the frustrations of opening a small bar:

    two uses of ‘vibrancy’, two uses of ‘classy’, another misspelled faux-French venue called ‘LouVe’ (the first instance of bogan spelling in a bar?) and an egregious misspelling of ‘definitely’ IN CAPITALS

    Good work Bento. Seeyas down the ‘Heem!

    Noticed this last week and thought it well worst worthy. I’ll miss Bobby Dazzler’s, to an extent – probably all the more once The Boheme is in place. one40william casts long shadows, that’s for sure.

    That sound you can hear is Puccini rolling in his grave.

    Just terrible. Bunbury terrible.


  12. ABartley says:

    The original Wentworth Hotel was next door to the Bohemia Hotel on Murray St-now demolished -always a popular venue on the St Georges College pubathon and RUBarking
    a modernised link to the past?


  13. I hope the opening of The Boheme is not delayed by this. The sign was gone when i walked past the other day.


  14. TheRealist says:

    Just another CBD venue that will be charging over $10 for a pint!
    It’d time the people of Perth voted with their feet, and let these overpriced venues stay empty for a few weeks.
    That might just bring the price of a pint down to a resonale level…say $6.

    Visitors from the UK who pay 2-3 quid overthere end up paying over 6 quid here for a pint…outrageous!!!

    I know where that is anyone want me to post the old Dianella Pub on here.
