Get Your Jam on at Perth’s Best Live Music Venues

Join us in our noble quest for the smoothest, coolest and danciest tunes in brilliant Perth!


The Jazz Cellar

Mount Hawthorn

This place is too well known as Perth’s best-kept secret for that to be technically true anymore, The Jazz Cellar remains Perth’s very best raw, stripped-down jazz experience. Open mic Friday nights, and with everything BYO except the tea and coffee, this place truly is all about the music. Find the alley, head through the phone box, zip down the stairs, and settle in for a good night. Find out more

“The music is great and the band is as hot as ever and it was great to see the familiar faces behind the microphones pumping out great trad jazz standards for 3 hours. What has changed noticeably and for the better is the service and the way that the Cellar is organised and run by the young gentleman behind the bar.” – PerthJazzLover

The Moon


If you’re looking to wind down after a big night, The Moon might just be the answer. This late-night café/bar offers a chilled haven for those seeking refuge, sustenance and libations, and features a host of local acoustic artists for your aural enjoyment. The dessert pizzas are also magnificent, available in both chocolate and apple and cinnamon varieties. Find out more

Jack Rabbit Slim’s


From electronica and hip-hop to a barely describable range of genre-bending brilliance from around the world, Jack Rabbit Slim’s is the place to be to keep your ear on the pulse. This place is both a top-notch concert venue and a temple of tastiness for those who appreciate good fries. We’d particularly recommend “The Ragin’ Cajun” option, with lime, coriander and spicy Cajun shaker salt. Utter bliss. Find out more

The Ellington Jazz Club


There’s nothing quite like the smooth embrace of jazz. The Ellington hosts a range of jazz, cabaret and contemporary music shows, with early sessions during the week and a special 11:30pm slot on weekends. The Duke himself would be proud. As for food, you have to try the meatballs with sticky barbeque sauce. Seriously, trust us on this one. Find out more
