Court Hotel 50 Beaufort St, Perth, 1888
The Court is a rare and early example of a hotel within the City of Perth that has been continually used for its original purpose since its construction in 1888.
It is an important element of the predominantly late nineteenthand early twentieth century streetscape vista north along Beaufort Street as viewed from the James Street Mall.
It complements the landmark buildings on the west side of Beaufort Street, including the Old Police Courts, the Western Australian Museum, and the Swan Barracks yet does not appear to be on the Heritage list.
In the past decade it has become the favoured watering hole for those who have an alternative lifestyle. Unfortunately the current owners have also destroyed much of the old-time charm of the building.
