The Best Private Dining Rooms in Perth

Updated 3 weeks ago


Private dining rooms marry the best of both worlds: the food and service of a restaurant, and the privacy and relaxed atmosphere of your own home.

  • Descend some stairs behind St George’s Terrace to find this moody cocktail and whisky bar full of old-world charm.

  • There’s nothing common about Coogee Common. Not its sprawling garden, not the warmth of the renovated Coogee Hotel space, and not the produce-driven, no-waste cooking of chef Nathaniel Murray, an alum of Melbourne fine diner Vue du Monde. You'll find earthy cooking in the dining room; counter meals and snacks in the pub; and vegetables, fruit and honey in the backyard.
