Sneaky Tony’s

North Perth

Firmly living up to its name, Sneaky Tony’s is indeed a place of mischief and mystery. It’s everything you want in a super-cool rum bar, basically! Taking its cues from the old speakeasies of the prohibition era, and overflowing with rums and rummy cocktails, this place is well worth hunting with your friends if you’re down for a top night out in Chinatown.

The Aviary – Bird Cage


Nothing beats a good rooftop bar in the hazy summertime, and The Aviary’s ‘Nest’ is one of the very best around, so round up your friends. It’s the largest commercial rooftop space in WA, and simply bursting with greenery, gorgeous views and zesty fun. The drinks list is extensive, and the food goes down great, especially if you’re trying a bit of everything with your mates. They’re certainly onto something with that prawn and squid pizza. Mmm… Find out more

“Every time I go to shop in the city, I always pop into the Aviary Roof Top Bar for a drink and a snack. It is always abuzz with people and the casual vibe and atmosphere makes it a great escape from the shopping in the city. Great views, always sunny, large range of drinks to choose from which are reasonably priced considering its location. Bar/finger foods are great. Friendly & efficient staff.” – Kikininja

“I’ve been coming regularly for a few months now and have managed to move up to the Senna karts. I’ve always found the staff to be very helpful and answer any questions I’ve had about the best way to get up speed in the karts and drive like a pro. They really know what they’re talking about. If you haven’t visited before do it. And seriously – try their flavoured hot chips. They’re out of this world!” – dvkilaton
