Perth takes best bar, hotel titles

One of Perth’s small bars has been named the best metropolitan bar in Australia, while Crown Metropol Perth has taken the title of best overall accommodation hotel.

The national Australian Hotels Association awards for excellence were held on the Gold Coast last night, with 39 gongs handed out.

North Perth’s The Classroom was named Australia’s best metropolitan bar for presentation and service.

The Classroom was launched in 2012 by the team behind catering business Cocktail Gastronomy.

Business News reported yesterday that the team is now launching what’s thought to be Australia’s first crowd-funded restaurant, which will be a late night venue in Northbridge.

Crown Metropol Perth also featured highly in the awards taking out both the ‘best redeveloped accommodation hotel’ and ‘overall accommodation hotel of the year’ award.

AHA (WA) chief executive Bradley Woods said the awards recognised Crown’s investment in Perth.

“We keep telling people that Western Australia’s tourism and hospitality offering is amongst the best in Australia. These awards are a testament to that and there is certainly more to come,” he said.

Mandurah venue Murphys Irish Pub was also awarded for outstanding community service and achievement.
