THE iconic Greens & Co cafe in Leederville is in line to become an Indian eatery and pub.
The quirky and chaotic Greens & Co, often stylised “Greens & Cock” due to frequent additions of a painted CK to their sign, closed in April 2021 leaving a large, solemn shopfront in the middle of the Oxford Street strip.
The new tenants want to open a 200-patron Indian gastro pub called Jagga Daku where Indian style craft beers are served alongside yoghurt-based lassis and the owner’s traditional recipe for masala chai.
Company director restaurateur Rohit Kaushal has previously managed Boba Bites and Bollywood Lounge in Karatha.
The place is named for a Punjab rebel hero who lived circa 1901-1932 and who became known as a Robin Hood figure for his charitable banditry during British colonial rule.
It needs Vincent council approval to changed the use to tavern, with officers recommending approval given it’ll “reactivate a vacant, large and prominent tenancy in the Leederville town centre”. There were no public objections during consultation.
It’s proposed to stay open til midnight, in line with other nearby bars.
Greens & Co closed in April 2021, but a painstaking recreation of the famed “Greens & Cock” sign persisted long after the doors were shut.
