There’s nothing that makes us happier than a killer happy hour. But as it turns out, they aren’t all that easy to stumble upon in Perth. That’s why we’ve done the (really tough) research for you, drinking our way around P-town on the cheap.
Here are 10 of Perth’s best happy hours.
Head downstairs to this old school carnival themed bar from 5-6pm from Monday through to Saturday for pints, schooners, sparking, red & white wine and house spirits all for 7 bucks! You’ll need at least a couple to wash down all the free popcorn.
It doesn’t get much better than half price happy hour every single day. Head to Samson’s Paddock from 5-6pm to get yourself started, then why not stay for dinner?
Knock off work early and head to Bob’s Bar between 4pm and 5pm Monday to Thursday for $4 middi’s, $8 pints and $8 glasses of wine. Why not grab something off the hillbilly menu while you’re there? You won’t regret it.
You can always count on a bar that’s this close to a university to have some a drink specials and Varsity Bar does not disappoint. PBR Sundays mean $5 PBR beer all day long. If Budweiser is more your thing, head down on Tuesday for 30 wings and 4 Buds for $46. Deal!
Head in to Clarences any day from Monday to Friday between 5 and 6pm and enjoy a pint of any of their tap beers or a glass of wine for $8. If you're after something to eat, they also do some pretty amazing meal deals like Parmi night on Monday and burgers and beers from Tuesday to Friday! What more could you want?
The Oxford in Leederville has some pretty rad specials most night of the weeks—pizza for $10 on Monday and Tuesday or a steak and bevvy for $20 on a Wednesday—but Thursday is their really happy day with $8 pints all day long!
The perfect excuse to leave work a little early on a Friday, Wolf Lane starts their happy hour at 4:30pm on a Friday to get you in the mood for the weekend. You’ll be able to pick up $12 cocktails or if you prefer beer, wine or spirits, they’ll be $7. Yaaas!
The Claremont Hotel knows how to happy hour! All week long from 5:30 to 6:30 you can get $8 pints, $5 spirit mixers (yes you read that right), $10 cocktails AND 30% off wine! They’ve also got $8 pints all day on Wednesday and $10 cocktails every Saturday. Yippee!
Hula Bula Bar
The team at Hula Bula Bar makes every day fun with all sorts of daily specials! There's a different theme each night from Tuesday to Friday, but all of them involve $10 cocktails and cheap beer from 4pm until late most nights, and from 4 to 7pm on Fridays. They also do special cocktail deals from 6 to 8pm on Saturdays and their Tropical Sundays are all about the $10 cocktails and beer specials from 4pm until late. These are more like happy nights than happy hours, but we're ok with that.
And no happy hour list would be complete without an Irish pub ammiright? On Friday's Paddy Maguire's does $10 cocktails, $15 bottles of sparkling and $7 pints of their beer of the month– ALL DAY! They also happy hour every weekday between 5 and 6pm, where you can get $8 ciders, $5 winer and $5 house spirits.
