TINY's NOW OPEN AT QV1

Tiny’s brings good times to the city’s west end, cultivating an inner-city oasis and social centre
at one of Perth’s most iconic architectural buildings, QV1.

Part of the newly redeveloped QV1 Plaza, Tiny’s is situated in the old Bar One site, and opens into a large indoor and alfresco bar area, restaurant, and specialty liquor emporium. Eclectic food fuels the good times (and there will be many), fresh vegetables and herbs from the kitchen’s rooftop garden, and protein hits roasted on Tiny’s custom-made wood-fire grill and rotisserie. The drink menu offers craft beer, seasonal cocktails and small batch wines, while Tiny’s Liquor Emporium will serve over 300 wines and a range of spirits. Tiny’s is the new meeting place for socialising and entertaining in the CBD. Midweek will see solo acoustic acts showcasing re-imagined covers and DJs playing laid-back funk, hip-hop, and nostalgic classics. Friday and Saturday nights will feature DJs and resident house bands turning up the entertainment, and bringing the good times into the weekend.

The Team

The good times are brought to you by the biggest names in Perth hospitality–Michael Forde and Paul Aron–the minds behind Perth’s most benchmark venues (Mary Street Bakery, Greenhouse, Cantina 663, el PUBLICO, Ace Pizza). Brett Robinson, former group manager of Mrs Brown, Mechanics Institute and Dominion League, joins them as a Director. If those names weren’t enough, Jacob D’Vauz, a young chef whose career went from cooking at Rockpool Bar & Grill, to being a touring chef for Paul McCartney, is also part of the all-star gang. Perth-based wine consultant and owner of Budburst Wine Bar (Best New Wine List in Australia at the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Wine Awards) Rachael Niall heads up Tiny’s Liquor Emporium, creating an epic booze selection, as well as sharing her knowledge for future tastings and master classes. Front of house will be lead by Caitlin Webb, who brings a wealth of wine and service knowledge (Lulu la Delizia, Il Lido, Boatshed Market Wine Loft) and James Pennefather (Bobeche, Long Chim) will hold court behind the bar.

The Kitchen

Tiny’s kitchen will serve up share-style snacks to accompany mid-work and pre-show drinks, as well as more substantial dishes to satisfy even the greediest of bellies. The kitchen is fitted-out with a custom-made wood-fire grill and rotisserie, inspiring dishes like, Sticky blood plum glazed beef intercostal sticks and Roasted prawns with bottarga butter and burnt chilli. The rotisserie will roast whole chickens and pork necks with potatoes and lashings of gravy. Tiny’s is not just a meat fest, though, the grill will also be utilised for wood-grilling fish, and vegetables and herbs from the rooftop garden. Focusing on food with bursts of flavour, Tiny’s menu is designed for quick eats before a show at His Majesty’s, substantial plates shared at work lunches, or dinners with friends once the day is done.

The Drinks

The main bar at Tiny’s has eight beers on tap, from crowd-pleasing lagers to emerging craft beers and IPAs. The cocktail program showcases a selection of signature drinks and classics with a Tiny’s twist. Sustainability is a big inspiration, and the cocktails will feature seasonal produce from the QV1 rooftop garden. The wine list definitely won’t disappoint, with an extensive bottle selection with wines from small producers, eclectic varietals and of course, old favourites. There’ll also be 20 wine-by-the-glass options, rotating frequently for those in the mood to try a few.

Interior

Michael Forde, Paul Aron and Brett Robinson are adept at creating contemporary spaces that are both on-trend and accessible – Tiny’s is no exception. Wanting to pay homage to the original design, the guys have gone for a “lived-in” feel, but with modern and eclectic elements.

  Giving a nod to QV1’s history, Tiny’s still wears the original wood panels from Bar One, but they’re now adorned with brass features and bespoke lighting. Reflecting Aron’s involvement in QV1’s green initiatives and the menu’s focus on garden ingredients, plants are a feature, keeping the space light and welcoming. The hottest seat at Tiny’s is along the bar. A bespoke pistachio green terrazzo, with a brass drip tray, the bar morphs seamlessly into the kitchen and the seats wrap around, making it a place to see and be seen. Perth born artist
(now living in London), Benjamin Barretto, was commissioned for Tiny’s centerpiece. A weave made of ropes and cables on a hand-made loom, Barretto’s artwork gives bursts of vibrant colour to this modern space.  iny’s is a place to settle and chat comfortably, while still feeling indulged.

Tiny's Liquor Emporium Opening Soon

Tiny’s Liquor Emporium is a liquor store, but
not as you know it. With expert guidance from Rachael Niall, the specialty store will feature over 300 listings. Wines will be sourced locally and from abroad, featuring growth wines from benchmark Bordeaux producers, and current vintage pét-nats from new world regions. The use of a Coravin wine preservation system will allow guests to try rare and high-end wines from
a constantly revolving wine-by-the-glass list

. There’ll be two beers on tap, with rotating
craft beers available to drink in-house or take home in 2L growlers. Guests can choose
from a range of bottled cocktails prepared by the bar team, and served over block ice.
Records, glassware, decanters and quirky curiosities will be available for last minute
gift ideas, and Tiny’s Liquor Emporium will host tastings, master classes and intimate
dinners, all while spinning your favourite 45s.

New Food Precinct at QV1

One of Perth’s most iconic CBD buildings, QV1, is set to undergo significant regeneration, with the first phase, a complete re-imagination of the ground floor retail plaza, already underway.

Co-owned by Investa Commercial Property Fund and Eureka - Real Assets, the investment will further position the building as one of Perth’s most desirable working environments and destinations. 

The stunning, architecturally-designed space will become a vibrant, food haven for tenants, city workers and visitors.

QV1, located at the top of St Georges Terrace, houses a range of premium tenants across its 43-premium grade storeys and its ground floor plaza revitalisation will offer an exciting blend of quality food and beverage retailers.

Hip Perth eatery Mary Street Bakery has already signed up and are currently operating a pop-up venue in the plaza with a shift to permanent premises planned when the redevelopment is completed later this year.

Owners Michael Forde and Paul Aron will then turn their attention to turning the former Bar One restaurant into a contemporary inner-city tavern to be known as Tinys..

A complementary offering of premium bars,  casual dining and ‘grab & go’ venues are expected to commit to Perth’s newest wine and dine precinct in the coming months.

A complementary offering of premium bars,  casual dining and ‘grab & go’ venues are expected to commit to Perth’s newest wine and dine precinct in the coming months.

The new precinct  will be a striking counterpoint to the QV1 building, designed by internationally renowned modernist Harry Seidler AC.

Crested with a giant steel and glass oculus structure, the exciting new meeting destination will heavily utilise elements of nature, including canopy trees.

Hassell Architects Principal, David Gullund, said the oculus will be a truly bold statement without comparison in Australia.

“The rooftop structure will be surrounded by lush, green trees and vibrant floral features, generating shade, wind protection and ultimately a relaxing, usable space for retailers and customers within the space,” he said.

“The revitalisation of the QV1 plaza draws inspiration from the global trend of creating flexible open-areas with dynamic, interactive spaces for meetings, cultural events and restaurants and bars,” said Mr Gullund.

The venue will provide improved amenity to QV1’s existing tenants and deliver a much-needed, dedicated urban food precinct for west end city workers, according to Brett Dillon, Fund Manager at Eureka - Real Assets, a subsidiary of AXA IM - Real Assets:

“The western end of St Georges Terrace continues to  strengthen with a number of new projects including the pending completion of Capital Square, as well as the new Perth Arena and Channel 9’s new offices.  The creation of the space at QV1 will deliver a fresh identity to the precinct and confirm the building’s position as one of the most desirable office locations in the City. We are committed to attracting Perth’s top tier organisations, whilst also ensuring that the building complements the significant redevelopment seen in the area over the past few years”.

“QV1 is arguably Perth’s highest quality commercial building, so to be adding such an impressive and active destination to the ground floor plaza is really setting a new benchmark for office accommodation in the Perth CBD,”  said Investa’s Perth General Manager, Tom Simurina.

The revitalisation is scheduled for completion in early 2018. QV1 is - co-owned by Investa Commercial Property Fund and Eureka - Real Assets, a subsidiary of AXA IM - Real Assets.

CBD West End Transformation One Step Closer to Reality

QV1 REDEVELOPMENT PLANS APPROVED

QV1 is set to become a leading destination for commercial businesses and boutique retailers having recently received development approval by the City of Perth for a major redevelopment of the retail plaza and introduction of new tenant amenities.

The redevelopment will see the tower’s iconic plaza area transformed to become a vibrant meeting place in the west end of Perth’s CBD where city workers and visitors can enjoy quality food and beverages, pop up events or catch up with friends and relax in the lush environment.

At the heart of the plaza will be a living mural garden bed, designed to complement Harry Seidler’s existing architectural work and bring an element of Kings Park to the city.

Click here for a 360 degree, panoramic view of the new plaza design.

The highly anticipated third Mary Street Bakery is the first retail tenant to commit to the project, followed by a unique ‘eating house and bar’ style restaurant set to open later this year.

Co-owned by Investa Commercial Property Fund and Eureka Funds Management, the transformation will also provide tenants with new state-of-the-art amenities and dynamic shared spaces to create an urban community environment.

Investa Office, Perth and Sydney Portfolio General Manager, Tom Simurina said the co-owners are committed to ensuring the lifestyle facilities on offer matched up to the premium status of the QV1 building.

“Our goal is to create an upmarket, lively precinct that celebrates Perth’s foodie culture and gives tenants, office workers and visitors a place to relax and enjoy with friends.

“We are hoping the redevelopment will be a welcome addition to the evolving food and drink scene in the city, providing more opportunities for boutique food and beverage retailers and diversity for people visiting the city.”

The redevelopment will also involve the creation of a best in class premium end of trip facility for the office tenants of QV1, in addition to a childcare centre on the podium level.

Tanya Lambert, Asset Manager at Eureka Funds Management said embarking on this major development is an exciting time for QV1 which will see it cemented as Perth’s pre-eminent office address.
