There are some people who will tell you that the best beverage to curl up with on a cold winter's night is a mug of hot tea.
Those people are wrong, and they are also a little bit lame. Because we all know that the best drink to enjoy on a winter's evening is a mug of mulled wine.
Oh yes. The delicious combination of cinnamon, cloves, star anise and orange zest, all swirling around in your mug of warmed red wine. It's an aromatic taste sensation, and not to mention a darn good way to stay toasty on a cold night.
So instead of cranking your heater up this winter, head to one of these bars and warm up with some of Perth's best mulled wine.
Petition Wine Bar & Merchant
Leave the city streets and warm up with a glass of delicious and spicy mulled wine this winter, available Wednesday to Sunday at Petition Wine Bar and the Postal Hall in the State Buildings.
Get yourself to Percy Flint nice and early so you can nab a spot by the fireplace and settle in for an evening of all the mulled wine you can drink. Word on the street is that these guys do a mean mulled cider too. Win!
The Guildford Hotel
Served up in nice big mason jars, The Guildford's mulled wine has a hint of rosemary and cinnamon and goes perfectly with their delish pub grub.
We all know Benny’s is good for a cracker of a Saturday night where you dance to old school beats until 3am and end up at Nick’s Kebabs. But did you know it’s also good for mulled wine? Benny's have some of the delicious warm spicy stuff behind the bar at the moment that is well worth a try. Kebab afterwards is optional.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a bar more perfect for a winter’s night than The Cabin. Reminiscent of a ski-lodge, this place is perfect for a cheeky beverage on a chilly evening. Curl up by their fireplace with a glass of their mulled wine and pretend you’re in the Alps.

BONUS! Rodney's Bait N Tackle
Ok, it's not mulled wine. So sue us. The merry crew at Rodney's Bait n Tackle are doing hot rum with homemade spiced cocoa butter and falernum (that's spiced rum syrup to you and me), plus more rum and coconut water. Yes, yes, yes!
