With an increasing number of couples leaning towards activity-based socialising, Perth is plentiful with uniquely nostalgic ideas that are bound to break the ice. So, if date night is fast approaching we have the Scoop on how you can get to know your date the old-fashioned way.

Chicho Gelato

Take a step back in time to invoke your childhood appreciation of an ice-cream cone! Chicho Gelato in Northbridge’s inventive selection of ice-cream flavours and gelato sandwiches is sure to capture your attention. Chicho are renowned for their traditional Italian method of storage, ‘pozetti’, encouraging customers to choose a flavour beyond attractive colours or appearance. Avanti!


Holey Moley Mini Golf

Tee off for a few rounds at Holey Moley’s multi-sensory mini golf course. On the green, embrace your competitive side with Game of Thrones, The Simpsons and Back to the Future-themed holes. Off the green, enjoy an assortment of cocktails and cheap bites at the fully-functional bar by the DJ stage.


Amplifier Bowl

Amplifier’s recently opened bowling alley, ‘Amplifier Bowl’, has sessions available at just $5 per person alongside a broad range of alcoholic beverages and live music. Fully equipped with live music, cheap eats and retro-themed bowling lanes, the bowl also features a large courtyard – perfect for relaxing with your date post-game.


Galaxy Drive-In Theatre

If you have a movie date-night in mind, why not make it nostalgic at Galaxy Drive-in Theatre, Kingsley? This retro theatre is open year-round when twilight strikes. Head down for the Tuesday night special at $20 per car, covering both you and your date, and feel free to grab dinner from the movies’ nearby café.


The Jazz Cellar

Cultivating your cultural side? Whilst this bar may not be the right setting for soft conversations, it offers a night of high-class music performances and lively dancing. One of Perth’s best-hidden gems, The Jazz Cellar is located off Buxton Street Mount Hawthorn, with its entry disguised as a red telephone box. You can BYO drinks and food. Hot tip: try the pizzas from the local Neighbourhood Pizza.
