Little Creatures has opened its new late-night venue located adjacent to its brewery and restaurant. Called The Loft, the new venue is located in the upstairs section of the old Harbourside nightclub.

It’s a wine bar-cum-supper club and, while it has its own distinct space, there are similarities with the Little Creatures venue, such as the polished concrete floors.

But not all the floors are naked, with lots of Persian rugs adding splashes of colour.

Miles Hull, who also co-owns Fremantle’s Harvest restaurant, has been overseeing The Loft’s development, including its serious wine list.

The list includes about 200 wines at the moment, and there are plans for it to grow further.

The Loft is open from Wednesday to Friday from 5pm to 1am, and from midday to 1am on Saturdays and from midday to midnight on Sundays.

A supper club menu is available, which includes oysters, toasted sandwiches and even cupcakes.
