Choo Choo’s – Brookfield Place, Perth CBD
Opening in late 2013, Choo Choo’s is an intimate small bar located in the heart of the city within the Brookfield Place complex.
The industrial interior of the bunker-like bar, features a unique and eclectic mix of urban art, vintage furniture, antique lamp bottles, polished concrete floors, and wall posters. A wide range of music genres will be played in the background to match the diverse fit out
Co-directed/owned by Mike de Vos, David MacNish and Tye Harper, these veteran hospo players bring years of experience. De Vos in particular has been working in the industry for over 10 years with stints at Hudson, Luxe, Cheeky Sparrow and left his role as Manager of Bobèche to start Choo Choo’s.
Beverage-wise you can expect a decent selection of local, and imported, bottled craft beers, a large list of bourbons, classic and custom cocktails (such as the Dolce & Gabana – #AppletonEstate Rum, Hazelnut, Pomegranate + Lemon), and a small handful of Australian and imported vino.
Whilst Choo Choo’s doesn’t offer any food (apart from the delicious, complementary freshly popped pop-corn), Grill’d burgers is within spitting distance across the way from the bar.
Recently, Choo Choo’s launched their Unamped sessions on Wednesday nights. Unamped showcases some of Perth’s best up-and-coming muso’s all playing live, un-plugged, acoustic sets.
The Choo Choo’s crew are a laid-back, chilled, back bunch. An attitude thats reflected in their patron #choochoolyfe commandments:
- Thank you isn’t a dirty word! We appreciate you, so please appreciate us.
- No ties – work’s over… loosen it or loose it… Take a breath and relax!
- If you wouldn’t leave them with your Ma, don’t bring them here.
- No white Limousines.
- No name dropping, we probably don’t know who they are anyway…
- No pre-wasted’s.
- Exit briskly and quietly. Respect for our neighbours is respect for us.
