St Brigid Bar
St Brigid takes the winning formula of owners Siobhan Blumann and Hamish Fleming’s North Freo small bar Mrs Brown, and reimagines it for the northern suburbs.
Although it was originally named for St Brigid Terrace (which the site backs onto), the Irish saint famed for turning bathwater into beer also informs the drinks program. Six taps host a revolving selection of local and imported craft beers. A similar freedom extends to the wine list, which features minimal-intervention drops from WA and beyond.
To eat, you might find shareable snacks such as garlic and rosemary fried potatoes; barbeque corn with smoked paprika, pecorino and lime; and Spanish-style octopus.
Long-term Bread & Circuses collaborator Patrick Miller of Finespun Architecture (who’s behind Blumann and Fleming’s other venues Mechanics Institute and Propeller) designed the handsome space, which comfortably fits 120 people. The interior is split into several different rooms, and there’s a sunny courtyard out back with a fireplace for chilly nights.
