South Perth - 11th November - 18th December 2016 | Elizabeth Quay - 26th December 2016 - 2nd April 2017

What is Embargo Bar?

Embargo Bar is docking on both sides of the Swan River for the 2016/17 Summer, South Perth Foreshore and Elizabeth Quay, which makes perfect sense because this pop up bar is made out of a shipping container.

Embargo isn’t just any old shipping container – it’s been lovingly re-engineered into a two-storey haven, complete with rooftop deck, licensed bar, food trucks and great live entertainment. Our space is full of comfortable spots to sit and enjoy all that is going with the best views in Perth!

Serving food from a rotating roster of Perth’s best food trucks and pop-up restaurants, you’ll find a different food truck here every time you visit. Enjoy a huge selection of local and international craft beers and ciders on tap, great wine and the right kind of cocktails for this riverside spot.
