Scarborough expanding with more taverns

Scarborough expanding with more taverns


The operator of the Generous Squire tavern in Perth’s CBD has applied to spin another James Squire beer-themed tavern out into Scarborough.

If approved by Western Australia’s director of liquor licensing the tavern would be called Squire’s Landing, and open on the podium level of the recently-renovated Observation City complex, these days known as the Rendezvous Grand Hotel.

Like the Generous Squire tavern, Squire’s Landing would be owned and operated by Danny Kapinkoff who at various times has operated Durty Nelly’s in the Perth CBD, the Merredin Oasis Hotel and the Moon & Sixpence at Woodvale in Perth’s outer north.

Squire’s Landing patrons would be able to imbibe a James Squire brew or two in either the 220sqm indoor bar, or the 80sqm al fresco area.

Patrons not partial to the James Squire drop will be able to choose from a range of other brews.

As part of the licensing process, Mr Kapinkoff has collected responses to 287 surveys he distributed through such forums as Unsurprisingly, 98 per cent of the survey respondents supported the planned bar.

Mr Kapinkoff hopes Squire’s Landing will replicate the success of the Generous Squire which in 2010 won the Australian Hotel Association’s Best Redeveloped Venue award and in 2012 took out the AHA’s coveted Best Steak Sandwich gong.

If approved, Squire’s Landing will join the recently-approved 750-patron Matisse Beach Club, and smaller Scarborough Beach Bar and Restaurant in the Observation City precinct.

Anyone wishing to support or object to Squire’s Landing must do so by February 7.
