We have always had a good time at Universal Bar. The drinks are always well priced and the cocktails are delicious! Fridays and Saturdays there is a live band at night and there is always a great crowd on the dance floor (no matter what your ability is). It can get quite packed later on in the night so if...

For Happy Hour, this place is terrific. We've been back a number of times because they're one of the few places that does a Friday afternoon happy hour. $7 on all wines, spirits and tap beers - fantastic! Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is a bit nightclub-ish for afternoon drinks but sit out on the pavement and people watch... More

Just happened to be walking past and noticed Happy Hour $6 Pints... very rare in Perth to find a good place to drink that runs a good Happy Hour. The bar menu is pretty good serving normal pub grub. The Universal Bar has been around for a long time and is very popular at night. The decor is looking old... More

From 5pm-10pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 12 inch pizza and beer special for $10 cannot be beat. The pizza was almost too big for one person+it was very good. They also have $15 steak dinner with a beer on Wednesday and Sunday and $15 chicken parmi dinners on Thursday and Sunday. Give the Universal a go, you will not... More

We had planned on going to the pub next door but they were booked out so we ended up here and I think it was a much better place. We had the pizza and cider deal and the pizza's were done to perfection. The wedges we had as a side order were a little dissappointing, a little overcooked but overall... More
