From escape rooms and plays set on vintage buses to speakeasies and bottomless high teas—Perth really is turning it on for us this week.
In case you’re not already seeing Fringe shows every night of the week, here’s some inspiration to keep your social lives going.
Monday 20 January
Speed: The Movie, The Play At Girls School
Set on an actual vintage bus, take an imaginary drive on the nostalgia highway in this Fringe show that pays homage to the 90s classic, Speed. Sadly Keanu and Sandra can't be there, but plenty of LOLs are promised, as well as some "Hollywood-ish special effects". We're on board for that.
Tuesday 21 January
Summer Vegan Feast At Sweetwater Rooftop Bar
Sweetwater is making a name for themselves in the Perth vegan scene, and this January they're throwing yet another delectable dinner dedicated to animal free eats and vinos. Think charred cauliflower steak done three ways, salt and sichuan crusted tofu and rum roasted pineapple with coconut sorbet and candied chilli. Bookings are a must.
Tuesday 21 To Friday 31 January
Moroccan High Tea At Moore & Moore Cafe
Moore & Moore is back at it again with their famous Moroccan High Tea. Fill up on shakshuka, baklava and pancakes all the while sipping Moroccan mint tea. Make a booking for three or more and you’ll even score a glass of organic bubbles. Once you’re completely stuffed you can walk off your food baby in the gallery next door.
Wednesday 22 January
Airy Botter Escape Room At Girls School
We can't call this a Harry Potter escape room because J.K. has got that copyright on lock, but you'll feel like you're trying to escape out of Hogwarts at this interactive Fringe show spectacular. Make a beeline for Almost Fumbledoor's office and then try to bust your way out again.
Thursday 23 January
Freo Speakeasy At Freo.Social
Don’t wait until the weekend to have fun, get those party vibes flowing early at Freo Speakeasy. A 14 piece swing band is taking over Freo.Social, where the mixologists will be shaking up prohibition style cocktails and you can give swing dancing a go with a free lesson. Entry is only $10 and the whole shebang kicks off at 7pm.
