The Lucky Shag

From prosecco to frozen margaritas and strawberry daiquiris, The Lucky Shag is a fabulous watering hole to visit if you're looking for gorgeous views of Swan river. Plus, their food offering is equally as enticing with nachos, pizzas and seafood delights on the menu. 

This bar offers low lighting, leather sofas and flickering candles, making it perfect for chilled-out drinks with friends and intimate date nights. Whether you fancy killer cocktails or a moreish glass of vino, you can also complement it with one of Bobèche's scrumptious small plates.

An Italian restaurant-cum-wine bar in Perth, Lulu La Delizia is a haven of heavenly liquid libations. Grab yourself a seat inside the European-style eatery or, better yet, head out to one of the sunny street-side tables. Either way, you'll get to sip a variety of international vinos in a classy setting.

Bright, beautiful and boasting a sun-drenched roof terrace, The Standard is certainly one of the best bars in Northbridge. Thanks to its sky-high plot and extensive drinks list, it's ideal for cocktails with a view. On top of that, it fronts a fusion food menu championing Australian and East Asian flavours.

Ask anybody about the best cocktail bars in Perth, and Foxtrot Unicorn will always be on their lips. Not only is this place as quirky as they come, fronting taxidermy foxes, vintage knick-knacks and the like, it's also home to a hefty drinks menu. And don't get us started on the jaffles...

Gorgeous inside and out, The Stables Bar is up there as one of the best bars in Perth's CBD. The uber-cool hangout is wetting the whistles of the city's fun-loving folk, slinging out a drinks list to be reckoned with. Head over for lazy cocktails in the sunshine and lively bottomless brunches.

While primarily a dining destination for high-class fare, Wildflower is also home to quite the drinks selection. Signature sips include the rosa, which fuses hibiscus and citrus-infused vodka with Davidson plum. But if whisky's more your thing? There's a long list of that too.

Housed in a trendy Art Deco apartment block, Balthazar is a sophisticated bar boasting one heck of a wine cellar. Focusing on small producers and bottles made with minimal intervention, this beaut stocks vino from all across Australia. Pop in for a drop or two and maybe a nibble to go with it.

Bringing a taste of Thailand to Perth, this stylish watering hole showcases a fragrant array of mixes centred around tropical fruits and plants. Our favourite? The jasmine - a soft, floral concoction that combines cognac, vermouth and mandarin with the flower.

Bob's Bar is a popular plot among locals and tourists alike, offering tasty brews and snackaroos aplenty. When you're not basking in the sunshine from its sky-high terrace? You'll be knocking back cocktails, wines and beers, accompanied by a small plate of deliciousness or two.
