Meet The Perth Indies, The Bunker

Meet Colin Bell  

The Bunker Bar opened in September 2019 in Perth’s South Street bringing a new look and fun vibe to a night on the town.  Owned by Colin Bell, and business partner Praveen Kumar, their Sports Bar idea was super simple – and, it transpired, extremely popular! 

Colin explains, “Sports simulators, big screens and good food and drink are the order of the day, and although we had a rocky start with Covid-19 forcing us to close just a few months after we launched, the people of Perth have embraced us fully and we’ve reopened with a bang!”

Two indoor golf simulators host over 40 different golf courses from around the world and two Formula 1 racing cars give the Schumacher wanabees a chance to fly round the circuits – no legal limit required!  There are also several television screens throughout the bar with Sky Sports and other Premier Sports channels offering the big matches and games throughout the year.

All of this sporting action is fuelled by a wide range of beers, spirits, cocktails and wines, as well as a tasty bar snack menu offering up burgers, pizza, soups, sandwiches and ofc ourse, with Praveen on board, delicious curries and pakoras.
