Cool City of Perth Cocktails 

When it comes to Perth bars, is there anything cooler than a rooftop bar? The lush Terrarium brings the goods when it comes to top-notch drinks. Owner-Operator, Xander Stucken, the 2024 WA Good Food Guide “Cocktail Bartender of the Year”, sure knows his stuff. Want summer in a glass? Order a “Biddy Boom” whiskey sour. 

I love to watch day turn to night and bask in the twinkling lights of the city. There are not many bars better situated to do this than at Songbird, on level five of the Ritz-Carlton Perth. Each cocktail is expertly crafted to bring out vibrant West Aussie flavours. Their signature plum Songbird cocktail is served in a unique bird-shaped glass, adding an extra special touch.

Keep the summer vibes going year-round at Neon Palms. This Northbridge spot is where Latin American bar bites and burgers collide with their oh so cool cocktails. Ask the bartenders to shake up their Signature drink, The Neon Margarita, an electric blue mix of tequila, fresh lime, and agave. 

Find the golden ticket to get your disco dance on at Toots, in Northbridge. This super-secret cocktail bar serves up retro-tastic drinks from White Russians, to Blue Hawaiians and even early naughties classics like Midori Illusions Shakers and Squashed Frog shots – I sure remember those! Recline on the velvet lounge with a West Coast Cooler Super Spritz – best shared with a friend or two. 

Ola! It’s a Friday fiesta at Caballitos, the Queen Street basement bar that brings the energy any night of the week. I love the Latino vibe at this South American spot, where you can satisfy your thirst with a spicy marg or two.
