Mount Lawley’s bustling Beaufort Street hive is lined with plenty of varying, and funky establishments. You can find cool cafes, elegant yet casual bars, niche fashion outlets, and everything in between. And now, local pub, The Elford is home to a new venture, The Common Room.
Located in the upstairs space in the historic 1934 art-deco building, The Common Room is a dedicated creative place where up-and-coming artists from all walks of life and all areas of interest can display, flaunt, and demonstrate their talent and promote their work.
The Elford’s generous quarters is complete with in-house audio and visual capabilities too, providing artists with tools and resources that are necessary to showcase their works to the people of Perth and beyond. And the equipment just happens to be free of charge from Monday to Wednesday nights too.
The Common Room is designed to accommodate the diverse needs of artists; no matter their discipline, The Elford is swooping in to support the industry and anyone willing to express themselves.
With a focus on inclusivity and creativity, the performing arts space is suitable for emerging artists to experiment with new ideas and collaborate with others to bring their visions to life. From theatre and dance to music and spoken word, and everything in between.
The Elford itself is a Beaufort Street stunner, and a go-to local pub for a casual day or night out in a contemporary setting. Offering up traditional pub fare with a modern flare, The Elford focuses on utilising seasonal and local produce, along with a carefully curated wine and beverage selection. They’ve got the lot.
If making a mark on the art scene and connecting with creative, like-minded people is an adventure that’s been calling, then The Common Room may just be your Hogwats’ Room of Requirement, Mount Lawley style.
