Best Bars in Perth

Top 10

Perth’s bar scene is blooming and the time for pollination is now. It’s not just the heart of the city that is alive with small bars, but the neighbouring suburbs of Northbridge, Mt Lawley, Fremantle and Leederville are flowering too. From rooftops to laneways, these watering holes require your full attention...no beer goggles allowed.

  2. Helvetica

    Perth CBD, Perth, Western Australia

    Lurking among the office blocks of Perth CBD, Helvetica is a sexy and sophisticated bar that specialises in whiskey. The golden tipple is sourced locally and abroad and the menu is divided up by country. Opt for a 15ml or 30ml pour of Bakery Hill Classic Malt from Victoria or a Hakyshu 12yo from Japan. The bar also offers Bottlekeep, which means you can purchase a bottle and store it in Helvetica’s whiskey cabinet, and the next time you drop in your bottle will be waiting for you.

  3. Mechanics Institute Bar

    Northbridge, Perth, Western Australia

    Blue collar Perth has always loved men who are good with their hands and that's exactly who you'll find behind William Street, Northbridge at the Mechanics Institute. The mixologists at this very down-to-earth cocktail bar don't rely on fancy-schmancy rare liqueurs and flavour infusions. Their daily-changing cocktail menu is a barrel of fun and their wine list is equally delightful. Put this together with a four-tier outdoor deck and a range of burgers at the bar and you've got a recipe for a good time.
