A reminder email came the day before confirming our booking. From the moment we arrived at the Purl Bar,... More

The small bites menu offer a great variety and tasted great, especially the calamari which was complimented by a great salad.

I booked a table prior to attending "Burn The Floor" at The Regal Theatre, which is a very short walk away. There only appeared to be two members of staff on duty but they were efficient, helpful & friendly. Unfortunately, my first meal preference was not available & the cheese on my pizza was also not available, but substituted with... More

We went to Purl on a Saturday night purely to dance! The DJ played fantastic old school RnB creating a great vibe. There was no cover charge. The bar has a small dance floor as well as booth, bar, lounge and table seating for those wishing to just soak up with atmosphere. At this time of night, food was not... More

I love this place. Food is fantastic, atmosphere is great (live music), doors that open out into the street,cocktails, good wine, staff are friendly. I feel like this is what a Subiaco restaurant should be. I recommend.
