A few words from Andaluz Bar & Tapas
Tucked away under the historic Parker & Parker building on Howard Street in the CBD, Andaluz Bar & Tapas breathes fresh air into Perth's bar scene. Our Head Chef has designed a contemporary menu of tapas designed for sharing, complemented by a diverse selection of fine local and international wine, beer and spirits. Our talented and experienced bar team's clever, heady mix of cocktails includes suave classics and whimsical inventions.
Andaluz's eclectic, intimate rooms mingle cosy antique lounges with Parisian dining tables and sleek bar seating. Settle into a well-worn chesterfield by the fireplace for a late-night tipple, drop by for a serve of our renowned tapas, or kick up your party heels and enjoy a cocktail or two.

The edgy eats and funky European varietals at Howard Street newcomer Andaluz add up to the best small bar food experience in Perth. Around 18 tapas are on offer, including carpaccio of Black Angus beef with migas, seared scallops with Berkshire pork cheek confit and a small bunch of lovely desserts. The best tables lurk at the back, tucked into nooks and crannies in the building's old vault room.
Excerpt from June/July 2009 Edition
Once you've unpacked, experience Perth's new lease on life (and rash of small-bar licenses) by cosying up at Andaluz (21 Howard St, (08) 9481 0092 (08) 9481 0092). This basement-level, wine/cocktail/tapas bar opened early this year to the delight of everyone with a yen for pre-loved leather Chesterfields, vintage Spode ware and good local ingredients. Manager Ryan Gregory and young chef Brenton Pyke (ex Just Bar) have brought some much-needed laneway style to this part of town. Jut don't mention Melbourne...

Tapas is the mongrel cuisine of modern cooking. Pubs, even roadhouses, now have tapas plates. There's a Turkish tapas restaurant in Melbourne, a North African tapas restaurant in East Perth and a backpacker brew-house tapas bar in Fremantle.
Good tapas doesn't have to be authentically Spanish but there's a point at which even the most loose defi nition of tapas crosses the line. Everyone has a view of where that line is but if it's made of pig, salt cod, eggs, black pudding, smoked paprika, potato and Spanish ham, it's probably tapas. If it's salty and piques the appetite, it's probably tapas.
Andaluz, a newcomer to Perth, is authentic — not so authentic you want to pronounce Barcelona with a lisp or give your castanets a rattle — but its soul is Spanish.
I've been a few times since it opened and it gets better and more sure-footed with each visit. You might have heard "how Melbourne" it is. And, yes, it has a subterranean, edgy, Flinders Lane feel about it, with small rooms, low ceilings, chesterfield sofas, table lamps, low ceilings and small nooks for banquettes and tables....
