Clancy’s Fishbar City Beach

Shamelessly vibrant antidote to monochrome minimalism...

Having been issued a brief to concoct something clever and colourful, whilst being quick and frugal with finances, Perth based architect Paul Burnham set about transforming the large, sprawling and uninspired space of a 10 year old restaurant recently acquired by Joe and John Fisher, the owners of two existing Clancy’s Fish Pubs in Perth, Western Australia.

Opening just 7 weeks after work commenced, and coming in at under £170,000 – including all tables and chairs – Burnham certainly achieved on the latter conditions of his initial brief. It’d take a brave man who argued he hasn’t delivered on the clever and colourful too. Unabashed in its stimulating vibrancy, the playful, welcoming interiors of this beachside restaurant are a gleeful ‘up yours’ to the staid, unimaginative minimalism employed by so many contemporary spaces these days, and the relaxed, exuberant vibe is a testament to that.

Vivacious Designers Guild fabrics, quirky multicoloured timber chairs and a concrete floor painted with children’s games, Burnham’s vision for the City Beach branch of Clancy’s Fishbar is bright, bold, shamelessly theatrical and, we love it…
