I don’t care what you say, looks do matter when it comes to finding a Perth bar you want to hang out in for hours on end. A good drinks list is important, yes. Food is also important. But once those two factors are taken care of (and really, they should be a given at any good bar), all anyone wants is to sit somewhere pretty and drink themselves silly—but not too silly, these are Perth’s most beautiful bars after all.
So next time you need to impress, suggest a drink at one of these beautiful bars in Perth.
Is there anything Little Way can’t do? Breakfast—tick. Coffee—tick. Dinner—tick. Serious #doorporn—tick, tick, tick! Located in one of Nedlands’ most beautiful heritage buildings, get a seat in the amazing courtyard, the private room out the back or out the front among the leafy green goodness.
If you haven’t got time to sit down for a Thai feast at Long Chim, do yourself a favour and get one of the amazing cocktails. With exposed brick, street-art-style artwork, concrete and rustic wooden chairs and a beauty of a courtyard, you will never want to leave.
Huge open spaces combined with stunning beach views is a surefire way to a beautiful space if you ask us. Find a spot on the deck at Odyssea and order a cocktail or three.
The Shorehouse is an absolute feast for the eyes. Copper accents everywhere (including that epic metallic bathtub), one of the most beautiful bars you’ll ever lay eyes on, a gorgeous deck and the cutest hanging chair. The view isn’t too shabby either.
If I could move into Il Lido I probably would. The long tables, the wine-lined walls, the view of Cottesloe beach and the delicious Italian food. What’s not to love?
Sweetwater Rooftop Bar
Everything about Sweetwater Rooftop Bar in East Fremantle is sublime. From the deck with its comfy lounges, beautiful chairs, eye-catching floors, masses of greenery and epic views, to the chain link curtains in the restaurant—everything here is beautiful.
Strange Company has wine on tap. If that’s not true beauty, I don’t know what is. But drinks aside, the bar itself is very easy on the eyes. It’s modern but comfortable, and I for one can’t get enough of the greenery in the bathrooms.
Budburst Small Bar
Housed in a beautiful 100-year-old cottage in Mount Hawthorn, you knew Budburst would make the list of the most beautiful bars in Perth, didn’t you? With a mix of high tables, gorgeous antique chairs, plush leather couches, exposed brick walls and some stunning lights over the bar, this is an interior lover’s dream!
The Old Laundry
It doesn’t matter if you sit out the front at the cute blue tables, at the super cool tables inside, or out in the leafy green courtyard, there is no denying it—The Old Laundry is one of Perth’s most beautiful bars.
Petition Wine Bar And Merchant
Another tick for the State Buildings, Petition Wine Bar spills out into the awe-inspiring postal hall with its beautiful tiled floors and high ceilings. It doesn’t hurt that the walls are lined with wine—beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all.
Behind the huge doors on Roe Street, The Standard is a sight for sore eyes. Do yourself a favour and make your way past the lovely bar to the courtyard to hang out among the greenery. If you want to take it a step further, head upstairs to the wooden deck and you’ll get a glimpse of the Perth city skyline.
Shadow Wine Bar
If you’re into opulent elegance, Shadow Wine Bar is probably your favourite place in Perth. Dark, moody and boasting one of the best wine lists in Perth, Shadow is sure to impress even the most discerning among us—it's undoubtedly one of the best bars in Perth, and one of the most beautiful to boot.
The Flour Factory
Well hello there beautiful. Spanning three stories of the one-hundred-year-old flour mill in the Perth CBD, The Flour Factory is the best. Soak up the buzzy vibes downstairs, or head to the rooftop for some beautiful views to go with your drink.
