Clancy’s Fishbar City Beach in Western Australia by Paul Burnham Architect

Joe and John Fisher operate two successful Clancy’s Pubs in Perth, Western Australia.  In late 2010, an opportunity arose to take possession of an existing ten year old building on the beach front at City Beach, one of Perth’s most popular and pristine beaches.  The building housed a former restaurant and was very ready for an upgrade.

The plan was to revive and transform the former venue into a new, family friendly place suited to the beach front location. We set about to create a casual and lighthearted environment evoking the feel of a summer holiday shack appropriate for the sun, sand and sea of an Australian summer.

Joe and John requested unrestrained colour.  For speed and economy the new works were limited to the treatment of floors, walls, ceilings and the provisional of all new furniture. The large space was stripped out and the vast raking ceiling was painted out in a dark charcoal, providing a background to the twelve oversized lavish fabric chandeliers. The new lights are suspended from the ceiling by a playful mass of vibrant fabrics, suggestive of the colour and brightness of beach towels. The new chandeliers are a juxtaposition of the traditional and whimsical.

The concrete floor was painted over with children’s games, patterns and mermaids.  Multicoloured slatted chairs assembled from recycled timber and old street signs added to the 1960’s holiday atmosphere. Other lamps and furniture were sourced from second hand stores.

The spectacular beach setting with it’s wide, bright, glaring white sand and sparkling blue water provides a complete contrast to the new venue. Clancy’s Fish Bar, City Beach is a festival of colour creating a bright and frivolous carnival destination.  The make over was completed in just seven weeks to ensure the new Clancy’s benefitted from the remaining Perth summer.

The project benefitted from the clients enthusiasm for creating something unique and fun. Clancy’s is a place where families and children can come in off the beach with sand on their feet and enjoy fish and chips and a beer.
