When your back on the mainland, head back to the hotel to wash off that beach sand, and make your way to the Mechanics Institute. This tiered rooftop bar, which is somewhat hidden down the alleyway behind William Street, is a much-loved Perth drinking stalwart and could be mistaken for a trendy Brooklyn drinking hole. Order one of their expertly crafted cocktails and enjoy the lingering Perth sunshine perched atop of the bustling William Street.
Make your way back down to ground level and set your sights on The Standard for dinner. This industrial-chic bar and restaurant has got a fusion dining menu that takes you all over the world. The dishes, which are designed for sharing, range from caramelised kangaroo and charred local squid, to turmeric coconut fish and Korean barbeque chicken. Add to that an incredible wine, beer and cocktail list, plus atmospheric dining in their ambient courtyard, and you have yourself a perfect Perth evening.
