In defiance of COVID the Perth small bar scene continues to evolve and breweries continue to open up across the state. Here are five new bars ready for you to explore over summer.

Bailey Brewing Co

Shaped from a simple vision of making, sharing and drinking good beer, Bailey Brewing Co opened at the start of November in the Swan Valley’s back yard. A fantastic excuse to escape the craziness of the city, the massive 250-capacity venue offers home brewed beer, a great wine list, delicious bites, and a massive playground for the little ones. With wedding packages available, they are a magical venue, hosting 50 guests. Read more here.

Open: from Tuesday – Friday 11am – 10pm, Saturday & Sunday 8am – 10pm

Neon Palms

Taking over the space left vacant by Panama Social, Neon Palms is a bar you couldn’t possibly miss, sitting on the corner of William and Francis Street in Northbridge.  Featuring bright colours and synthesizer-heavy soundtracks of Miami in the 80s, the bar offers a tropical cocktail list and a menu that showcases the flavours of Latin and South America.  You can even try their version of the Cubano sandwich, inspired by the iconic film Chef. For more details see here.

Open: Wednesday – Saturday 4pm – 12am

Pep’s Wine Bar

Located in the heart of Peppermint Grove, Pep’s is a cosy and comforting neighbourhood bar. The bar is the result of a 10-year dream of local couple Charlie and Natasha Galbally and opened in October. It has since been very popular with the locals who now call the place home. With an extensive wine list featuring over a hundred wines, it’s a fantastic spot to relax after a long day. To read more about their story, you can visit their website here.

Open: every day from 3pm

Johnny Mo’s

To satisfy Perth’s insatiable appetite for Instagram-worthy bars, the rooftop at Lucky Chan’s has been revamped and reopened in October as a themed bar, with themes changing every few months, promising the same quality service but a fresh experience. With the name honouring Quentin Tarantino, many of the cocktails are named after iconic characters from the filmmaker’s catalogue of cult movies, paired with bartenders wearing the signature ‘Black Suit and Kato’ mask. Available for walk-ins and exclusive function bookings only, to keep up with each theme, see here.

Open: Tuesday to Saturday 5pm – late

Skol Bar in Scarborough

Skol Bar

Located on the corner of Calais Road and Ewen Street, this Scandinavian inspired eatery has certainly won over the hearts of Scarborough locals since its opening in October. Born from Ryan Croll and experienced hospitality pair Ben Noble and Mani Vogt, the meaning behind the Nordic name expresses the vision perfectly; to express friendly feelings towards companions before drinking. From 12pm, you can come for drinks and their tapas-style menu. See more here.

Open: Wednesday – Sunday 12noon – 10.30pm
