Wolf Lane is set to sizzle fusion-style with Perth's newest small bar set to open in mid-2013.
Bar de Halcyon is the brainchild of entertainment industry identity David Heaton, who promised it would add a new element of sophisticated decadence to Perth's small bar scene.
Mr Heaton said the license was granted this week and he can now start fitting-out the premises, which will cater for up to 120 patrons.
Best described as a pinxtos bar with a twist, the new hotspot will offer a relaxed and sociable ambience where people can enjoy premium quality and reasonably priced beverages and enjoy fusion-style bar snacks or 'pinxtos' – a type of tapas typically enjoyed in northern Spain.
Mr Heaton said the influence of new character bars, restaurants and entertainment options in the CBD would see Perth continue to evolve into a dynamic and exciting destination, offering a diverse range of experiences.
"Now more than ever, the Perth CBD is an exciting place to be. There is an excellent mix of bars and restaurants for people to enjoy and it’s continually evolving. It’s fantastic to be amongst it and I’m thrilled we’ve been given the green light to go ahead with our plans," Mr Heaton said.
The inspiration for the name, Bar de Halcyon came from its interpretation of the word 'halcyon' to mean calmness, happiness and joy.
"Bar de Halcyon will be my first foray into the small bar scene and the name was chosen because we want to reflect what those words represent - a boutique bar with a comfortable ambience, complemented by a fusion of cultural influences," David said.
"I look forward to creating a venue that is sophisticated, but a lot of fun and contributes to the liveliness of the city," he added.
Mr Heaton has over 12 years of invaluable industry experience and is owner of iconic Perth nightclubs and music venues, Amplifier Capitol and Metropolis Fremantle. He is hoping to open another small bar in the Perth CBD in 2014.
