An Update from the State Buildings
A COVID-19 update from the State Buildings.
UPDATE — WEDNESDAY MAY 13 2020
We are almost there, we promise. We are very much looking forward to reopening our doors in mid-June and welcoming back all of your beautiful faces and we are even more delighted to announce that we will be entering an exciting new chapter at the State Buildings.
Our hospitality luminaries have been working on evolving our cherished collection of restaurants and bars — our home in the heart of Perth will soon feature a new-look wine bar, a refreshed Post restaurant and there will also be a brand new venue joining our family. Yes that’s right, a brand new venue. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, our spicy sisters at Long Chim Tuck Shop will be reopening their doors on Monday. Be sure to follow the Long Chim Tuck Shop Instagram for the announcement of opening hours over the coming days.
We will also be continuing to offer our Long Chim, Post and Petition home delivery menus to ensure you can still get a fix of all of our cult favourites during this time.
No moment in our lifetime will ever look the same and we are beaming with excitement to reignite our cultural hub in the historic heart of Perth.

UPDATE — FRIDAY MARCH 20 2020
We would like to take this opportunity to update our valued State Buildings community following the latest announcement by the Federal Government today, requiring all indoor gatherings of fewer than 100 people to allow for four square metres per person.
We are a unique destination with many diverse spaces so our talented team of hospitality innovators have worked tirelessly to creatively reassemble our award-winning restaurants and bars. This new structure will ensure that, as always, we are prioritising the wellbeing of our guests and team members, whilst ensuring we are still able to deliver our warm hospitality and signature ambience. The new design will include pop-up dining spaces and bars within the stunning surrounds of our grand Postal Hall.
Our wonderful Reservations Team will be in touch should there be any changes to your booking. During this time, walk-ins are still welcome in our venues, however we do recommend making a reservation to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to welcoming you to the State Buildings this weekend!
UPDATE — THURSDAY MARCH 19 2020
The wellbeing of our guests and team members at the State Buildings is of the utmost importance therefore in response to the global spread of the virus we have taken the following actions to enhance your protection:
Hygiene practices – Signage and sanitiser stations have been set up at all public entry and exit points of the buildings as well as our staff and supplier entry point. Whilst our food preparation and cleaning practices have always been of the highest standard, we have implemented additional precautionary measures including our culinary teams wearing gloves at all times in our venues and all team members washing hands according to stringent HACCP principles upon entry and departure from the venue. Shared cutlery boxes have been removed across the buildings and the use of reusable cups will not be permitted for the foreseeable future. The State Buildings restaurants and bars will also be operating as cashless venues as of Wednesday 18 March with all payments to be made via EFTPOS.
Communication – We are closely following the advice from authorities and will continue to monitor the situation. Our leadership team is meeting daily to discuss evolving issues with regular communication issued to team members and guests. We will ensure we keep you informed of updates and developments as soon as they come to hand.
Events, reservations and cancellations – Following the announcement by the Federal Government to discontinue all gatherings of more than 100 people we have conducted a review of all restaurant reservations and event bookings to ensure we, as always, are prioritising the wellbeing of our guests and team members as well as following the advice from authorities. We have implemented social distancing measures across the building, including reducing the capacity of our restaurants and bars to ensure ample space for our guests to still enjoy our warm hospitality.
We will remain flexible with our cancellation policy and will continue to provide suitable alternatives to our guests. We have introduced a new series of curated event experiences designed for fewer than 50 guests. In addition, we will also be offering state-of-the-art video conferencing facilities with air purifiers now installed in all meeting spaces. To find out more about these new initiatives, please contact email@example.com.
Our passionate team will continue to deliver our award-winning cuisine and exceptional service in the historic heart of Perth. Together as the State Buildings family, we will see this through.
We would like to thank you for your continued support.
