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?

What's happening at Swallow Bar for 2016?

Well you can look forward to another year of amazing free & local music. 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.

We now open a little earlier on the weekends from 12 Midday. Enjoy the buzz of Maylands during the daylight hours and a fabulous menu with plenty of Brunchy cocktails on offer!

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!
