The imminent arrival of the highly anticipated 1907 Bar remains…imminent.

The imminent arrival of the highly anticipated 1907 Bar remains…imminent.

The developers have hit a snag with the planners at the City of Perth and need to make some last-minute adjustment to the venue before getting the final approval to open.

Graeme Shapiro, who is working on the basement bar and the development of an up-market restaurant on the first floor of the Queen Street building, expects the bar will be open within the next few weeks.

But numbers will be limited to about 50 until a side entrance is completed.

When the bar opens, patrons will enter via a fire escape, which means numbers in the venue have been restricted. 1907 will follow in the footsteps of Amphoras Bar, the CBD’s first small bar to open under the new liquor licensing laws introduced in May.


Albany’s The Great Southern Distillery Company has pushed the button on a new venue, with plans to open a second outlet in Margaret River in conjunction with The Grove Vineyard.

The distillery will be called The Margaret River Distilling Company and will join the Liqueur Factory and Yahava Coffee Roasters at The Grove site.

The Margaret River Distillery intends to produce premium vodka and gin and will later develop brandy products.


For those heading out to indulge in the Swan Valley’s food and wine activities this Christmas, it could be worth stopping in at the Swan Valley and Eastern Region Visitor Centre to get hold of a relatively new initiative from the City of Swan.

The city has compiled a little book called the Swan Valley Super Savings, which contains offers and specials for more than 40 different business located in the region.

Swan Valley Super Savings is available to collect, for free, from the visitor centre. The book has been designed to offer good deals to entice people to the region during the week.
