Fenway Public House

Awarded Best New Venue in 2019 AHA Awards

Situated in the new Bradley Street Restaurant precinct of Westfield Woden, Fenway Public House is the new cultural hot spot for locals and all Canberians. Having recently won ‘Best New Venue’ in the 2019 AHA Awards Fenway was recognised by new anonymous judges, completely independent of the AHA ACT selected for their expertise and knowledge in the field. General manager of AHA ACT Anthony Brierley said a record number of nominations were received this year for awards across 32 categories recognising Canberra's top bars and restaurants.

The Riot ACT says that, “While Fenway has been designed as a contemporary, casual pub, they are committed to offering a little something extra on all fronts. The venue boasts multi-levels including a mezzanine which overlooks a large U-shaped bar, a sunken indoor beer garden, marquee-inspired cocktail sunroom and a small stage to facilitate Tuesday Jazz nights and acoustic music Friday through to Sunday sessions. Plus, they promise to include all members of the family in the fun, with a kids playground and dog-friendly events on Sunday mornings!”

The bold, iconic design balances warmth and sophistication with a playful outdoor beer garden vibe and is inspired by a love affair with the architecture and colours of the “Green Monster” which is a huge left field wall and seating area at Fenway Park Baseball stadium in Boston.

As an all-rounder style venue, the design harnesses the experience of going to a large event and how the community all comes together as one, but delivers it in a way that is unique and tailored to the Canberra market. The design explores a saturation of green colours, concrete, brickwork, greenery and textures to create a variety of spaces that each have a rich, unique personality and outdoor feel.

Large custom street art, inspired by the theme “Green Monster” was also painted on site by local Canberra Artist John Voir. The hero feature of the shopfront is a marquee inspired cocktail sunroom that spills out onto the outdoor garden space.

A mezzanine space can also be booked for functions or business meetings with a dedicated bar and view over the entire venue. The café space connects the large bar with a Westfield outdoor kids play area.

Internally the main hero of the space is a curvy brick-lined sunken dugout which boasts comfy seating, three of the largest screens in Canberra for watching your favourite sporting events an a small stage for live entertainment.
