Off the green, enjoy an assortment of cocktails and cheap bites at the fully-functional bar by the DJ stage.


Amplifier Bowl

Amplifier’s recently opened bowling alley, ‘Amplifier Bowl’, has sessions available at just $5 per person alongside a broad range of alcoholic beverages and live music. Fully equipped with live music, cheap eats and retro-themed bowling lanes, the bowl also features a large courtyard – perfect for relaxing with your date post-game.


Galaxy Drive-In Theatre

If you have a movie date-night in mind, why not make it nostalgic at Galaxy Drive-in Theatre, Kingsley? This retro theatre is open year-round when twilight strikes. Head down for the Tuesday night special at $22 per car, covering both you and your date, and feel free to grab dinner from the movies’ nearby café.


The Jazz Cellar

Cultivating your cultural side? Whilst this bar may not be the right setting for soft conversations, it offers a night of high-class music performances and lively dancing. One of Perth’s best-hidden gems, The Jazz Cellar is located off Buxton Street Mount Hawthorn, with its entry disguised as a red telephone box. You can BYO drinks and food. Hot tip: try the pizzas from the local Neighbourhood Pizza.
