A new tavern with ocean views is set to be built in Port Kennedy as plans for the development have been recommended approval.

Longpoint Brewing Company unveiled the proposal for the $13 million two-storey brewpub and accommodation at a council meeting in Rockingham on Tuesday.

Alongside the brewery, there will be a tavern with a main dining space, central bar, garden bar, beer garden, coffee kiosk, and upper-level function space with bar and veranda.

The tavern will be licensed for 500 patrons, and you will be able to enjoy a tipple whilst watching the sunset over Port Kennedy with the spectacular ocean views.

Alongside the tavern, the planned brewery will include a brewing space, a cool room and a back-of-house area. There will also be a tasting room and a merch shop for the brands brewed on-site.

And there will be eight two-bedroom units and a single three-bedroom unit making up nine short-stay accommodation units.

The plans include a tavern, brewery and accommodation.

Behind the venue, a 45-bay carpark is set to be built as well.

The venue is proposed for the Kennedy Bay development where over one hundred lots were recently on the market.

Before going ahead with the development, the plans have to be officially approved by the council.

However, City staff have recommended the plans to be approved to be submitted onto the Metro Outer Development Assessment Panel.

The City of Rockingham did site a few conditions though, one being to include bike parking at the site.

Also, the City asked for a piece of public artwork designed by a professional worth one per cent of the build costs ($130,000).

Once the plans are approved, the developers will have four years to begin building.
