Now that Clarences and Five Bar have shut up shop, you may be at a loss for where to head for a celebratory glass of vino in Mount Lawley. Fear not – we’ve curated an up-to-date list of cosy wine bars that are sure to whet your palate on your next jaunt up Beaufort Street.


Le Rebelle

Recently opened Le Rebelle fuses French cuisine with a New York attitude. This old-world-inspired bar and bistro boasts three tiers and sits opposite Mount Lawley’s Astor Theatre – making it an ideal spot for taking in a drink before or after a show. Le Rebelle’s wine list has been painstakingly narrowed down to 49 indulgent bottles with origins ranging from Australia to all over Europe. If affordable luxury and comfortable risks are up your alley, look no further than Le Rebelle.


Must Bar

A Perth favourite, Must Bar’s boutique bistro and bar offers a wide range of contemporary French dishes and Australian wines. The décor is traditional with a stylish edge and the soft lighting is akin to the warm glow of a slow-burning fireplace — perfect for a winter night out. One thing is for certain: unwinding with a glass of Pinot at this home-grown wine bar is a Must!


Trio Bar

For an authentic Italian experience, look no further than Trio Café and Wine Bar. Trio’s menu and wine list reflect the convergence of cultures in our modern era, with origins ranging from the Yarra Valley to Tuscany. True believers in upholding Sicilian tradition, Trio partake in an aperitivo, a.k.a a “two-hour drinking session” complemented by scrumptious snacks and good company from Wednesday to Sunday every week. Benvenuto a Trio!


Swallow Bar

Entering Swallow Bar is like being whisked away to a time of dinner parties and jazz (lots of jazz!). Tucked away by the Maylands train station, this intimate, European-inspired wine and cocktail bar is known for their live music, vintage décor and globe-trotting wine list. It also boasts an outdoor laneway, providing an open-air, rustic atmosphere that complements the antique setting inside. Settle in with a bottle of Ferguson Valley wine and indulge in a jazz-infused dream.


Henry on Eighth

This former 1920’s cinema now aims to capture the magic of the era with a modern twist. Frequent hosts of salsa dancing, poetry nights and live music, Henry on Eighth prides itself on its upstairs art gallery, which provides a sophisticated space to take in local culture. The daily specials are best paired with a little something from their extensive wine list, which offers everything from sparkling prosecco to South Australian shiraz. Why not indulge in a glass of local sauvignon blanc as your eyes feast on vintage art.
