Manky Alex Building 

Surprising how manky the expensive Alex Hotel building is already looking! This boring piece, somehow beloved by Perth architects, started off crappy and will resemble a mouldy piece of bread in a year or so. Is that a piss or rust stain? Can someone tell me what’s supposed to be good about it. I assume the interior is good?

    what’s good about it is that a city can’t be truly vibrant until it contains a selection of establishments that locals can’t afford to frequent.

    Perhaps if you spent less money on piña coladas in Lot 20 you could afford a night in the Alex. Priorities.

    Tilt up concrete house of cards utter tripe……. It has tacky Perth written all over it. By the way, while I’m here, I’d like to ask whether or not it was just a nasty rumour started by an equally nasty person that the ‘Conference Centre’ was soon to be demolished and that the public were welcome to come and sneer and cheer just as they did when the ‘Taj on Swan’ bit the dust? After that day has come and gone, I feel I might die somewhat a happy man.

    It has (did have) a communal Bloody Mary station. Where you’d expect to have some Milo and old Arnotts selections, there were selections of tomato juice and celery sticks.
