boozeinprettycups on the road – The Classroom

Tucked into a little strip of shops on the intersection on Charles Street and Scarborough Beach Road in North Perth, The Classroom has quickly livened up what was once a small business black spot. We’ve seen many a business come and go from that strip and more often than not the seemingly prime real estate has stood empty. Thank goodness for Adam Keane and Daniel Sterpini!
Heavily themed, The Classroom is full of references to an Australian child’s schooling experience. Desks as tables, hopscotch painted onto the floor, a backbar built out of old lockers, black boards and exercise books as menus. The drinks follow suit with the use of smokes, fogs, bunsen burners and interesting textures, all utilized in theatrical ways to engage their patrons. Adam, Daniel and their bar manager, Andrew Bennett have worked together to create a clever and original drinks selection.

These guys pay a lot of attention to the details and have managed to create an all encompassing aesthetic experience. We loved the clock on the wall set permanently at 3.25pm (the end of a traditional school day in Perth).

white lady

There are some drinks that suit almost any place or time. The White Lady is one of them. We used Gin Mare for this little weekend breakfast drink, so a rosemary sprig from the garden was a great complimentary garnish to lift the Mediterranean botanicals through the citrus. (Our lemon tree is going nuts again so expect to see a lot more of the sours family!)
