“The previously overlooked laneway came to life with a pop up bar, live music, and buskers, while surrounding restaurants and eateries were bursting with activity,” he said.

“This is the first time the City has trailed an event of this kind in a laneway, and it was great to offer the community something a bit different while showcasing the amazing local businesses in here in Perth’s inner east.”
