If you’re looking for an excuse to have a drink before you settle into a civilised meal, this is it! Whether you’re coming straight from work or getting dolled up for date night, Perth City ain’t stingy when it comes pre-drink offerings. Take your pick from one of our favourite bars and find the perfect spot to socialise and enjoy a delicious cocktail (or two) before your next evening meal.

Bar Lafayette

Brookfield Place

An escape from the corporate corridors of Brookfield Place, after-work drinks never looked so good at Lafayette – an artisan bar with buckets of character. Indulgent specialty cocktails, intimate lounges and live music are fixtures at this CBD joint. If you needed more convincing, the bar has raked up its fair share of awards – including the 2018 Australian Bartender Magazine Awards – Cocktail Bar of the Year.

The Stables

Hay Street

A big night of socialising ahead? The ever so stylish Stables Bar awaits you. Recently revamped with a sleek basement bar and coffee window (for the morning after), The Stables is a must-visit Hay Street haunt. Hidden behind big iron gates, the venue was once an original horse stable (hence the name) and now boasts a relaxed atmosphere with an extensive, well-crafted drinks menu.

The Loft Lounge and Bar

Hay Street

Embark on the night al fresco-style at The Loft Lounge and Bar. Propped on the first floor of the InterContinental Perth, the terrace bar has a strong focus on cocktails as well as an impressive list of wines and craft beer. If you choose to dine local – why not pop across the road and catch a show at His Majesty’s Theatre?

Market Grounds

Kings Square

An inner-city pub right in the heart of Kings Square Precinct, the folks at Market Grounds know how to do cocktails. From deliciously creative concoctions such as their Summer Smash (that’s raspberry, vodka, apple, elderflower and tonic!), to a more classic Aperol spritz, you’ll be sure to find a drink that suits your taste.
