Welcome to the Otherside

New temporary bar Welcome to the Otherside is coming to Subi for the summer, popping up behind the Corner Gallery from Nov 26 – Dec 13.

  • Dates:Nov 26 - Dec 13
  • Time(s):4pm to 9pm
  • Venue:Subiaco


  • Hosted By:Otherside Brewing Co and Crafted Events WA

Brewed up by the Triple-1-Three team, the powerhouse behind Otherside Brewing Co. and Freo.Social, the venue will transform the un-activated space behind the iconic pink walls of the Corner Gallery into a somewhat hidden bar.

The venue will be home to container bar with a rooftop area (think Fringeworld pop-up bar), a performance space for music and art, a kids play area and social spaces. Surprisingly, the little-known space can actually accommodate up to 450 people, so the more the merrier.

Drink offerings have a clear WA focus, featuring a 20-tap bar pouring pints of the Otherside core range, their most recent experimental brews (including a Christmas-themed sour and U.S. IPA), Vasse Felix wines, ciders and WA spirits. 

Welcome to the Otherside will be hopping to new locations throughout the summer, with each new spot getting a limited-edition cocktail menu, an on-site food truck and guest cooks from local restaurants.
