Our story

Varsity didn’t start off as Perth’s best sports entertainment venues or burger joint, but the passion for American food and culture has always been there, and we knew from the get-go we wanted to bring these vibes to Perth.

How it all started

For the love of good burgers, sports
and good times!

When we opened up our first venue in Nedlands in 2013, our vision was to recreate the ultimate American college ‘frat-style’ bar and hangout for uni students. And that it was! So much, there wasn’t even a burger in sight.

Since then (and 6 venues later), we’ve evolved heaps and we’ll keep doing that. We’re all about the experience and creating genuinely good times, for everyone. We’re proudly WA born and support local all the way.

Discover the
history of varsity.

Varsity has done a lot of growing up since it first opened it’s doors in 2013. The early days in Nedlands were more about uni students and beer pong than burgers and sports. But as word spread across Perth about the quality of the burgers, there was a culture shift towards the classic, American style sports bar that Varsity was inspired by.
