Perth

Things we love:

Perth boasts the largest inner city park in the world.
As the sunniest capital in the world (average 8 hours per day), everyone is high on vitamin D.
Back in 1962 residents turned on all their lights so they were visible by astronaut John Glenn from space hence being known as ‘the city of lights’.
With an explosion of new venues over the last few years, Perth is rocking the small bar scene, New York Times agrees… just saying.
They love a pop-up to keep us on our toes, from restaurants and farmers markets to cinemas.

Things we wish we’d known:

For Aussies, the big one is a Sunday arvo, totally chilled, under the sun. No heels required.
A foreign driver’s license does not constitute sufficient ID, take your passport or learn the hard way.

Bobèche
Bobèche

You might spend a little time trying to locate this speakeasy, which is discretely tucked beneath The Heritage Brasserie in St Georges Terrace. But waterholes were hard to find during the Prohibition, and Bobèche neglects no detail in paying homage Read More

Clarences
Clarences

Likened to a worldly wise old man with impossibly fine taste in wines and cuisine, Clarences, (named after the street and without the apostrophe), has certainly nailed it. Dim lighting, eccentric local art and plenty of leather and timber make for Read More

Frisk
Frisk

You may walk into Frisk impartial to gin but trust us, you’ll be its biggest fan by the time you stagger out. Situated dangerously close to BarChick’s Perth post, resisting the $10 cocktails on a Wednesday can be too much Read More

Mechanics Institute Bar
Mechanics Institute Bar

Back in the 1800s a mechanics institute was somewhere working men would rock up to to learn a trade, and it was this little piece of history that helped create the Mechanics Institute Bar in Northbridge, in August 2012. Located Read More

The Cottesloe Beach Hotel
The Cottesloe Beach Hotel

Feeling hot? Want to flaunt that overpriced frock you just bought? Come hang out with Perth’s rich kids at The Cottesloe Beach Hotel. Recently renovated and now one of the few places you can shamelessly dress up during day light Read More

The Laneway Lounge
The Laneway Lounge

Stumble down a dark alley way as a hidden door slides open; senses are ignited in a blend of acoustic talent and banging cocktails. Yeah, this is our kinda party. There have been whispers of The Laneway Lounge in the shadows Read More

The Stables Bar
The Stables Bar

This establishment may not have been a working stable for the filthy-rich since 1862, but you’ll still find plenty of stallions competing for hotties in this hidden nook on Hay Street. The fit-out nods to the building’s gilded past with iron Read More
