The Breakwater | Restaurant/Bar | Perth Metro | Hillarys
t took two years to construct and millions of
dollars to fit out but The Breakwater finally
opened at Hillarys Boat Harbour at the end
of 2008. Nearly two years later, the spectacular,
architecturally designed structure has well and
truly hit its stride as one of the foremost multi-
purpose venues in the Perth metropolitan area.
As well as picking up several awards for its
architectural and interior design, The Breakwater
has been praised for its hospitality – not only in
Western Australia, but also nationwide.
In September 2010, the venue won two awards
at the Australian Hotels Association National
Awards for Excellence – Best Restaurant and
Best Overall Hotel in Australia. These feats were
particularly impressive considering the strong
competitors from other states.
So having impressed both the architectural
and hospitality industries, The Breakwater is well
placed to focus on its guests, particularly those
considering hosting a function at the venue.
There are multiple spaces suitable for events,
starting with the ground level’s Lower Deck,
featuring the stunning Main Bar, which spills out
onto the boardwalk.
Ultra-high ceilings, a high-tech fireplace and
yellow-panelled columns invigorate the space’s
otherwise cool tones. Funky furnishings add
sophistication while floor-to-ceiling windows
flood the space with light, making for awesome
views of the water and beyond.
Areas of the Lower Deck Main Bar can be
allocated for functions and delicious platters will
keep guests going long after the first drink.
Upstairs, Reid’s Lounge, reminiscent of a New
York cocktail bar, attracts a chic crowd. Guests
can recline on imported European armchairs or
chat with friends atop plush, cushioned ottomans.
The space includes a private lounge area and
opens onto a balcony, overlooking the harbour
and the busy boardwalk. There is an extensive
range of boutique beers, wines and spirits as well
as a canape and tapas menu.
Also upstairs is the Akoya Suite, The
Breakwater’s premier function space. Swarovski
crystal chandeliers, opulent decor and views
The Breakwater has a relaxed, resort-like
vibe that is perfect for your next function.
