Neon Palms is the brainchild of owners and hospitality aficionados Hayden Carter and Sasha Fagan. Its lush, neon-clad interiors offer the perfect vacay-worthy escape right here in Perth, thanks largely to the smashable summer cocktails, moreish Latin American eats and cool Miami-Vice vibes.
If you’re a Pina Colada fan, we suggest trying out their signature drink, a Vice City—it’s a layered frozen cocktail, equal parts blue and pink with rum, coconut, pineapple and lime. But don’t worry, there are classic options available too if you’d prefer to keep things simple and steer clear of a brain freeze.
Food-wise, they’ve managed to nab one of Perth’s best Brazilian chefs Marcelo Kretzer (Duende, Don Tapa, Bar Bizu). His Latin American inspired bites pair perfectly with the boozy cocktails—expect hits like braised pork cubano and a South American riff on Kingfish ceviche, plus the handmade empanadas he’s known for.
Once you've ordered plenty of food and drinks, cosy up in a booth or grab a spot in the rear courtyard and you'll be set for a great night.
