A new Harvard University study has found smacking children can traumatise them to the same level as severe violent abuse. It found smacked children are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, behavioural problems and develop substance abuse issues.

Tiny’s Bar in Perth’s CBD has won Perth LIVE’s WA’s Favourite Local. Tiny’s scored 19/20 along with the Karalee on Preston after months of dining at pubs and bars across the city. To break the deadlock Perth LIVE listener Pete attended both establishments and had the deciding vote. After enjoying two great meals Pete selected […]
There aren’t too many places around Perth that are known almost exclusively for a signature dish. But if you hear someone mention Tiny’s, they’re probably talking about the roast chicken. Now, if you’re like me, the idea of roast chicken doesn’t exactly fill you with a must-try level of excitement. It’s not that I don’t […]
I’m not really sure what the area where Adelaide Terrace begins ‘is’. There’s the Concert Hall nearby, plenty of apartment buildings and lots of commercial offices as well. With that in mind I wasn’t sure what the clientele would be for Public House Kitchen & Bar which you’ll find right on the corner of Adelaide […]
Yagan Square is a beautiful development that has made the passage between the CBD and Northbridge easier, safer and more interesting… and The Shoe Bar has to be the jewel in its crown. This two story venue splits itself between a more casual cafe style offering on ground level where customers can also get breakfast […]

The Garden in Leedy has positioned itself somewhere in the middle of being the upmarket pub option in town and a sports bar. At first glance the menu is a bit ho-hum. But you know what? They’re offering the pub classics and doing those well. They have different weekly specials but by far the best […]

The Brook Bar and Bistro is Ellenbrook’s only pub within coo-ee of anywhere. Given the size of the area, this place should be rammed on a Friday night yet the bistro was half empty. Sign of the times or something else? These guys know their audience with the menu sitting firmly in the realm of […]
