Northbridge whisky bar The Dominion League has been sold and will close its doors next month, with the buyer believed to be Perth music promoter Saran Bajaj.

The Dominion League is owned by Hamish Fleming and his wife Siobhan Blumann, who own several other hospitality venues in Perth including Propeller, Mechanics Institute, Flipside Burgers (four stores), Guild Hall and Mrs Brown.

The Beaufort Street venue, which opened in 2014, confirmed it was closing its doors via a Facebook post yesterday.

“It’s with heavy hearts we announce that The Dominion League era at 84 Beaufort Street is coming to an end, following the recent sale of the business,” the post said.

“Over the last four years, a team of passionate, hard-working larrikins have created something truly special within the walls of Dominion.”

Mr Fleming said the deal made sense for both parties.

“The transaction is one of those good match ups where we were thinking of selling to free ourselves up for new opportunities, and they were after a venue in Northbridge for a new concept they’re launching into the Perth market,” he said.

“The purchasers fell in love with the building just like we did.”

Business News understands that Mr Bajaj, who runs Perth music event Origin NYE, is the buyer.

A recent article on online hospitality website Broadsheet detailed Mr Bajaj’s plans to open a retro arcade games bar in Northbridge.

On the same day as the Dominion announcement, prominent hospitality venue Scarborough Beach Bar, located on the redeveloped Scarborough beachfront, went into administration.
