Secluded Wolfe Lane bar Alda's will have company soon, with another CBD small bar expected to get its conditional liquor licence in the next couple of weeks.
Andaluz Tapas Bar is to be located in the basement level of the old Parker & Parker building, now called Howard Chambers, at 21 Howard Street, a small one way-street off St Georges Terrace.
The venue is part of a heritage-listed building and was previously used as offices.
Ryan Gregory, who has a mixed background in marketing and hospitality, is behind the new venture with his partner Carla Arevalo.
"We want to go for a comfy Victorian feel, something you sink into...we will target the 30-plus market with a focus on spirits, cocktails, wines and we'll have Spanish-style tapas as bar snacks," Mr Gregory told Gusto.
Mr Gregory, who applied for the small bar licence in the first week of April, is hoping the decision will take place in the next couple of weeks and would ideally open before summer.
It might be worth it to relocate after work-drinks to Cottesloe ahead of Andaluz Tapas Bar's opening, as restaurateur Kate Lamont just launched her latest venture last week, Lamont's Wine Store Cottesloe.
In the classic 'enoteca' fashion, customers will be able to purchase all the wines on the wine list for takeaway as well as ordering favourite wines to stock the cellar.
The venue, located at 12 Station Street, will offer a tapas style menu served from noon till 11pm and a wine selection from international and national producers, as well as a full range of Lamont's wines, of course.
