Its true folks!

We now open earlier on the weekends! Our bar menu plus some sneaky daily specials are available from 12 Noon to every Saturday and Sunday….



Oh for the cooler evenings! We are always inspired by what the season brings into the Swallow Kitchen. As Autumn enfolds us with deeper colours,cool breezes and the smell of wood smoke, we get ready to welcome the fruits of the earth like mushrooms, celeriacs and jerusalem artichokes.  As a weekend special (& possibly during the week if you ask us nicely…) you’ll find our cracked & grilled local tiger prawns with lemon butter and fresh chilli, plus our beautiful Autumn fig and Meredith feta plate. How about a cheeky glass of Barossa Rosé or sparkling Cremant de Loire to wash those down?

The Swallow Daily


Happy New Year Everyone!

We are excited to be back for another year at Swallow Bar.... I think its going to be a great one!


What's happening at Swallow Bar for 2017?

Well you can look forward to another year of amazing free & local music. We have a lot of regular musicians that are a part of the Swallow family, then each month there is always some new music to check out as we explore the amazing Perth music scene. Come on down for live Jazz & Blues on Thursdays from 7pm and Sundays from 5pm. Saturday nights settle into a booth for a night of great tunes from one of our DJs.

Our beautiful kitchen... Food is at the heart of Swallow Bar, and while we have a small kitchen, it is absolutely packed full of love and passion for life & food! Join us for anything from bar snacks and glorious cheese plates to main plates and our  Swallow Daily. We are lucky to get all our meat from Hampshire on 8th just around the corner, who share our passion for local produce, local everything... go Maylands!

Weekend lunches...We open a little earlier on the weekends from 12 Midday. Enjoy the buzz of Maylands during the daylight hours and a fabulous menu, great coffee and plenty of Brunchy cocktails on offer!

Swallow Bar cellar... Remember to check out our cellar wine list when looking for something a little special. We are always adding new treasures to our cellar....

Events.... We love hosting parties at Swallow Bar, and our courtyard or Captain's Room  are perfect to book exclusively any night of the week except Friday. You bring your friends, we'll wine and dine you! Our Captains Room holds up to 16 people, and our Courtyard a maximum of 35.

Small Bar Awards 2014

Yeah she looks good up there! He he he...

Wow, what a night it was! We want to give a big shout out to the Small Bar Association, for their pro-active involvement and encouragement, and for putting on a great award ceremony. To Connections nightclub for their fabulous rooftop lounge and hosting... To the amazing collection of small bars and owners that Perth is blessed to have... For a city that was somewhat slow to get started in the small bar area... It has really outdone itself! Very proud to be part if this thriving city! To our amazing staff, family, friends and regulars... We obviously couldn't do what we do without you, thank you thank you for your endless support and enthusiasm!


Hip hip... Hooray!!!!!!
