In the heart of North Perth lies one of Perth’s live music stalwarts. The Rosemount Hotel is one of what is unfortunately a dying breed of grungy, suburban pubs that offer local, interstate and international bands a great space to play.

The front room becomes stinking hot in summer, but you quickly learn not to be precious about a bit of sweat. If it becomes too much, head out into the beer garden and cool down with a nice, cold pint. The Rosemount isn’t about looking pretty, it’s about downing some beers and catching some great bands in a raw setting. Keep abreast of their bill to catch up and coming Perth acts before they hit the big time, as well as awesome international touring bands that are not to be missed.

They serve pub grub, and put on regular bingo, quiz and student nights, like any good pub should. Let’s hope our old, trusty mate The Rosemount lives forever. Claire.
