Greyfriars Bar is a quaint bar in just the right place for a drink with friends or a singalong. It’s a privately owned lively pub with cask ales, regular live music and open mic nights. A great place to drink, the staff are very friendly and provide excellent service delivered with warmth, humour and sincerity.
Greyfriars Bar changed hands on the 24th August this year, it’s a small cosy friendly bar with live music nearly every Saturday , every Thursday is open mike night and some Mondays we have traditional music as well. Fridays is Jukebox night: from 5 o clock to midnight you can play all your favourite tunes for FREE. The jukebox has 10,000 tunes so something there for everyone…
We sat down with the new proprietors to find out what they are changing and what excites them about this quaint pub.
Hi there, what do you think sets Greyfriars apart from other pubs?
“Greyfriars had the connection with real ale so we have continued to keep this going. At the moment we have 3 real ales and are looking to add a fourth. We have lagers, Guinness, a good draft range, lots of different bottle of beers, a good selection of white and red wine, mainstream spirits along with premium spirits as well”.
Is there any set age group you tend to see through the doors?
“To be honest we get a real eclectic mix, I think this is one of the best things about the bar itself. We cater for everyone and everyone seems to leave with a smile on their face. Our free jukebox and open mic nights have started to attract a slightly younger crowd who seem to mix really well with our regulars”.
Is there anything else you would like the people of Perth to know about Greyfriars under your ownership?
“I think that everyone should be aware that we still hold the same values that the pub has always had. We still have an emphasis on live music and real ales, these two have been the staple of Greyfriars since it first opened. We also want to be more than just a pub, our kitchen offers warming soup and sandwiches for those cold winter days. If you have never been in, or even just not for a while, I would urge you to come and give us a go”.
