Perth has got a sensational collection of underground bars that would give cities like Melbourne a run for its money. So before you head to your usual 5 o’clock haunt this Friday, scratch beneath the surface and visit one of Perth’s best underground bars.


The new mysterious bar on the block! So much so, that somewhere in Northbridge’s Chinatown is all we can really say. Just know that she’s a secret bar WITHIN a secret bar! Find the location, strut up to the bar, say the magic word “Is Toots in?” and receive that golden ticket to get you in. Present your golden ticket to the host, enter the secret door and you’ll find yourself transported back to a decadent 70s disco extravaganza. 

Joe’s Juice Joint, Northbridge

Superbly tucked away in an alleyway, down some stairs and into a basement is the distinctive Joe’s Juice Joint. This spot gives you everything you want from an underground dive bar – fried chicken, cheese burgers, pinball and great selection of beers. Plus, the classic rock playlist will keep you there into the wee hours of the morning.
