Fodor's Expert Review The Brass Monkey
This pub is in a huge, crimson-painted building with antique verandas and a lively, blokey vibe; it claims to be one of the oldest and most photographed pubs in WA. It has several areas with different moods, such as the beer garden, the rooftop bar, the balcony couch zone, the sports bar, and the adjoining Grapeskin wine bar. Open-mike nights on Tuesday, DJ mixes on Wednesday, and acoustic covers on the balcony on Friday appeal to the fun-loving—though we suggest you avoid backpacker night on Monday. There's no cover charge.
