Strap yourself in, because this weekend there are a tonne of events to give you a taste of all the action to come this summer—we're talking live music, contemporary art and more—plus, a good dose of food and drinks too.
Here are all the best things to do in Perth this weekend.
Support Pride WA By Sipping Through These Limited-Edition Pride Cocktails
Pride Festival is well and truly underway and to celebrate Lavish Habits—the crew behind top venues like Henry Summer, Joe’s Juice Joint, Alabama Song, Sneaky Tony’s and Toots—are shaking up a showstopping selection of limited-edition Pride cocktails, with a unique cocktail to suit each venue’s vibe. And with 50% of every Pride cocktail purchased going to Pride WA, why not go on your very own cocktail-fueled trail through Perth? Only available until the end of this month, so get moving.
Celebrate Little Creature’s 21st Birthday
One of our most iconic venues is celebrating a massive 21 years around the sun this weekend with a Miami-vice inspired party by the harbour, which given the sunny forecast sounds liek the perfect way to spend the day. Head down for free slices of pizza and a celebratory pint of the soon-to-be-released Freo Vice (a juicy sour ale with a good hit of raspberry) and soak up all the other good drinks, food and entertainment on offer.

Score A Free Coffee At The Brand New Cup & Co In Floreat
The third Cup & Co to hit Perth, this breezy new cafe opening this Friday 26 November is tucked away at the bottom of the new Eden apartment complex with a spacious alfresco area overlooking the lush parklands of Perry Lakes.
