Connections Nightclub


Famously thought to be the Southern Hemisphere’s oldest gay nightclub, Connections continues to attract all sorts of crowds with its wonderful atmosphere, exotic theme nights and general all-round fun factor. This time, however, we’re strictly here for the Bingay. It’s basically like normal bingo, except with far more drag queens. Plus, you get free pizza! What’s not to like?

Carpe Coffee


Carpe Coffee is colourful, carefree cafe chocked full of old-school video games, assorted figurines, knickknacks, cool artwork, and even a feature wall of VHS and cassette tapes! It’s basically your new happy place, and especially so on the last Saturday of every month. That’s when Playup Perth is held, which is involves testing out brand new and in-development board games. It’s awesome!

Boat Collective


Forget dry land; it’s time to take to drop anchor and conquer your friends at sea! The setting is Boat Collective, Perth’s leading floating bar experience, and the game is giant Jenga! Book your place and indulge in some fine food and drink as you prepare to prove your mastery of moving wooden blocks around with supreme dexterity.

Murphy’s Irish Pub


Definitely on the classier side of Irish pubs, Murphy’s is famous for both its exceptional service and its hearty, thoroughly delicious grub. The Thai-style salmon fishcakes are sublime, and the beer-battered chips are a must have with any meal (even if it already comes with chips). Monday night is trivia night, so head down and prepare to have your general knowledge firmly put the test.

Game City


Game City is a magical place where countless video games, board games, and ridiculously intricate pinball machines live side by side in playful harmony. There’s always something going on at this cafe, whether it’s a Tekken tournament or a good, old-fashioned LAN party. Why, it’s even partial to the odd anime screening! The food is really good as well, especially the pulled pork burger. Give it a try!
