Neon Palms, the newest addition to Northbridge’s small bar scene, is opening its doors on Friday, Nov 6.

Filling the corner spot left dormant by Panama Social, Neon Palms brings an aura of individuality to Northbridge. The neon lights and pink, blue and green walls throughout the venue, as well as the tall archways, oodles of plants and palm tree art just scream beachside retreat. With a brief of 80s Miami Vice (Grand Theft Auto: Vice City vibes), owners Hayden Carter and Sasha Fagan have executed their vision superbly, right down to their sported Hawaiian shirts and ‘Welcome to Miami’ sign. The idea for the bar was inspired by late-night bars they found travelling the world, and since we can’t go overseas ourselves, Neon Palms is doing us a solid and bringing those international experiences to us.

Brazilian chef Macelo Kretzer of Leederville’s Duende, Fremantle’s Don Tapa and West Perth’s Bar Bizu is in charge of the menu, so it’s no surprise that the menu is small, unpretentious and heavily influenced by Latin and South American flavours. Honourable mentioned include cubano sandwiches (yes, they reference Chef), make-your-own-taco kits, Argentinian chorizo hotdogs and papaya ice cream, but of course they’ll have classics like guacamole with corn chips and corn on the cob too.

In an on-brand move, the drinks menu has a focus on tequila, mezcal and rum, both on the rocks or in a fruity, resort-style cocktail. If you’re after something more simple, they have a healthy wine and beer menu as well, with local favourites Gage Roads, FUNK and Blasta all in attendance.

Although technically a small bar, the area is quite spacious, offering up a mix of bar tables, private booths and lounge seats to accomodate for large groups as well as intimate dinners for two. With summer just around the corner, the courtyard will surely be a hit, decked out with astro turf, plants, hand-painted wall murals, including a print of a Greek statue with a martini glass in hand.

Neon Palms
Opens Friday, Nov 6 at 4pm
245 William Street, Northbridge
Wed-Sat, 4pm-12am
