The Moon is a licensed restaurant with a full bar. You can stop in a for a casual drink until midnight (10pm Sundays), but after midnight you need to order food to order booze.
We also open for lunch on Friday, Saturday & Sunday from midday.
The Moon opened its doors in 1991 and after over 25 years of service still remains one of Perth’s most well known and loved night spots. From its classic art deco interior, through the doors to the kitsch retro courtyard, it has played a part in many local upbringings and housed early performances by some of Perth’s most remarkable artists. Homely eats until the early hours, a quick drink on your way out/home or wile the night away listening to genuinely interesting music in the cosy lounge room out back.. The Moon is a classic.

A bit of history about the building itself…
“The Interwar Art Deco Building at No. 323 William Street, Northbridge was constructed in 1930. Situated on a prominent corner of William and Newcastle Street, it was the location of the popular dance venue known as the Blue Room Cabaret in the 1930s to 1950s.
Local residents recall that at the time, as the tram stopped on Newcastle Street and slowly turned the corner into William Street heading towards the city, you could hear bands playing old time music and watch couples gliding across the polished wooden floor to dances of the era such as the waltz, the quickstep and the pride of erin. Children who were too young to attend the dances would delight in standing outside the windows watching ladies in long dresses and men in suits and ties.
In the early years the building was also a popular venue for ethnic socials and weddings and later occupied an ice skating rink on the first floor. In the early 1950s the Midland Bus Company took over the building for use as their bus depot and more recently the building has been used for shops, offices & restaurants.”
