Carpark paradise tempts revellers

A derelict carpark will be transformed into paradise when Subiaco's Pavilion Market site is revamped into a pop-up bar this month.

The rooftop of the Wilson's carpark will become an oasis of tantalising delights to lure crowds and boost Subiaco's night-time economy.

Visit Subiaco, the City of Subiaco's marketing arm, will refurbish the carpark each Friday this month with different themes, kicking off this week with a Garden of Eden decor and menu, followed by Spanish and Moroccan nights.

Visit Subiaco executive officer Annaliese Battista said the venue would be perfect to cap off a working week or kickstart a night out.

"We wanted to use existing space in an innovative and fresh way to entice people back to Subiaco and rediscover everything it has," she said.

The site has been vacant for seven years, with Sydney-based D2 Property wanting to build a major residential and retail hub on the site, at the corner of Rokeby and Roberts roads.

But the council objected to the plan's scale and height and refused to move to rezone the area.

Planning Minister John Day intervened in June and the plan is awaiting his final approval.
