The Best Hidden Bars in Perth
The Jazz Cellar opened decades before Perth’s small bar revolution, beckoning punters through a mysterious red telephone box. Its discrete basement digs and intimate jazz shows set the standard for any hidden watering hole here. By the time the city’s small bar scene exploded in the late noughties, venue owners were choosing secretive laneway spots by default. Finding them was half the fun, and bars like Helvetica, Andaluz and Ezra Pound gained loyal followings. Sure, they’re barely secretive or hard-to-find these days. But we’ll never tire of hooking down a laneway, or descending a staircase, to find a cosy and familiar haunt. These are Perth’s best hidden bars to keep an eagle eye out for, curated by Broadsheet’s expert food and drink editors.
