Taking over the spot that used to be Halfords in the State Buildings, Pooles Temple is the underground jazz bar you need to check out this weekend. Dark and moody with a menu boasting all things French, you’ll want to sink into one of the velvet chairs and drink the night away with a martini or three.
It’s all about the classics here and you can expect one of the best martinis in Perth along with cocktails like the Hemingway Daiquiri, the Georgia Mint Julep, the O.G. New Orleans Sazerac and a whiskey sour that you’ll want to savour all night long.
When it comes to wine, it’s a small but mighty French list curated by the one and only Emma Farrelly, all of which go perfectly with the live jazz that will be playing every Friday and Saturday night from 10:30pm.
Food-wise, this place is slinging the boujiest late-night eats around. You can pair half a dozen oysters with your choice of a classic martini or champagne coupe, nibble away on jamon and black truffle potato crisps, or give into your greasy cravings with one of their 'Late Nights'—a decedant four cheese toasted brioche sandwich. Either way, you'll feel fancy a.f.
Be warned, this place fills up quick. You might get stuck waiting outside for a bit if you’re not in early enough, but trust us, it’s worth it.
