Badlands Bar sees the ol’ Devilles bringing music back
When Devilles Pad closed its doors in March of last year, it was part of a alarming trend of live music venues in Perth that had bitten the dust. However from the ashes, it is quite apt that as we approach Easter there has been a resurrection allegedly in the name of Badlands Bar. Jayde Ferguson from Toward Music brought to our attention this news, giving the venue a complete going over whilst attending the secret show at the venue Tuesday 15 March – and the report was extremely positive:
“The rebranded venue still breathes a very similar vibe to the one we’re already familiar with. But there’s a few big changes. Moving away from being a cocktail / restaurant inspired venue, Badlands Bar is shifting the focus to be more about the music. The venue fit out remains largely the same with a few tight-twists to maximise patron comfort and experience. Whilst Devilles Pad was particularly supportive of live music, Badlands Bar brings in an even stronger focus of it for touring and local acts.
“Moving the famous d-floor volcano to the cave-inspired courtyard out the back, the stage has doubled in size to give live music acts room to move and offers that super impressive effect. The intimate booths are still there, as is the almost-tacky decorations that make the venue look deliciously entertaining. With a 400 person capacity, Badlands Bar still stays true to the Las Vegas hell-themed thrill renowned to Devilles Pad in the past.
“Major upgrades have also been made to the PA to maximise customer and artist experience, because good live music needs to come out with a bang! Post-gig good times can be expected for punters once the bar has reopened permanently, with cool tunes until 2am on Friday and Saturday nights to keep all those late night groovers entertained longer.”
Badlands Bar will be located at Unit 1, 3 Aberdeen Street.
