Canton Lounge Bar is one of Perth’s newest venues on the east side, offering a restaurant menu that’s just as sexy as the impressive interior. Accessed via a staircase illuminated with pink lights and drapes, the venue has undergone an obvious makeover from its former Chinese restaurant glory to offer a space oozing style and sophistication.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
It’s a mystery to me why the east end of Perth’s CBD has recently become such a ghost town, especially since it’s only metres from the bustling Hay Street mall. So when I stumbled across a gleaming new venue during a recent visit to this side of town, I was pleasantly surprised. Canton Lounge Bar is a sophisticated lounge bar that also serves great food. Accessed via a staircase illuminated with pink lights and drapes, the venue has undergone an obvious makeover from its former Chinese restaurant glory to offer a space oozing style and sophistication. Chocolate-coloured ottomans, lounges and a grand bar may indicate this place is more bar than restaurant, but don’t let that fool you.

There’s a menu that’s very reasonably priced and available from lunchtime until very late. Warm, marinated caperberries and Cerignola olives are tasty little nibbles to munch on while you choose your meal, and the Turkish bread with dips and chorizo make a great entree to share. Asian fried squid with watermelon, mint and green mango salad makes for a light lunch as does the very interesting Boston Bay mussels with crustacean broth and chorizo. By now you’re probably wondering what this chef is on, but the unusual combination of these ingredients provides some very interesting flavours indeed. Also worth sampling is the Serrano-wrapped prawns served with a light green salad and a shallot and raspberry vinaigrette. If this all sounds too fancy and adventurous for you, the scotch fillet steak sandwich and the pizza are both popular with those dropping in for a sneaky bevy at lunchtime. Perth’s east end may not be the most happening part of the city but Canton Lounge Bar is proving change is on the horizon. The future is bright.
