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.

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.
Off with a bang! Our American college themed ‘frat-style’ bar proved popular with the uni crowd. The local residents weren’t too fond of us but that soon changed when our bar concept evolved.
And what a hit it was… why didn’t we think of this earlier? We set the burger scene in Perth with customers lining up, coming as far as Rockingham a couple times a week just to get their Varsity burger fix!
We knew the punters wanted special weekly meal deals, and this was the first in a line of many.
Packed out and full of fervour! One of the only places you could catch the big game.
Our dominance in the Perth burger scene continued as we cracked open our doors in the entertainment precinct.
A proud moment sitting alongside other big name players in the fast food game, as the only local venue launching partner.
With a great focus on providing family-friendly dining options for Perth punters.
The start of many great things to come for this venue, later named the best sports entertainment venue in Perth for 3 years running.
We love to support local! The Feral Brewing collab was just the first of many others with local producers and suppliers in WA.
