We don’t think we’re speaking out of term when we suggest that Perth is pretty sports mad. In fact we might even go so far to say that we are the most sport-obsessed state in Australia (take that Melbourne).
As we head into the colder months and our attention focuses on the AFL and the NBL, game day – and its surrounding pre-game festivities – are all important. And one CBD venue that’s perfect for both NBL and AFL home games is the gloriously green surrounds of The Globe.
Close to Perth Arena and across the road from the underground train station to get to Optus Stadium, The Globe is one of the oldest pubs in Perth, established way back in the 1880s. The old colonial architecture mixed with a few modern updates and a big, green beer garden creates an excellent hang out vibe, whether it’s before games or after them for celebratory (or commiseratory) brew or two.
Making it all the more enticing is the menu, a perfect example of modern Aussie pub fare to be enjoyed with a couple of frosty ales (of which they have almost 20 on tap). We’re talking staples like chicken parmies, big Butterfield scotch fillets and burgers galore to go with great share options like sweet & spicy cauliflower, satay chicken tenders and some incredibly moorish BBQ corn & manchego croquettes.
If you’re not going to the game but are still chasing a sports fix – no dramas, The Globe has all the big local and international sports covered including AFL, NRL, NBL, Rugby Union, League and more. And you won’t miss any of the action by placing orders from your phone and having everything brought straight to the table via their online ordering system.
So that’s our pitch, the rest is up to you sports fans – head to The Globe’s WEBSITE now to scope the rest of their menu and book in a table now.
