Eat, Drink and Be Merry: Where to Head for Your Silly Season Tipples in Perth

The festive season is upon us in Perth, which means last-minute Christmas shopping, plenty of scorching hot days, Mariah Carey on repeat and festive cocktails at your favourite watering holes in and around the city. So, if you prefer your Christmas tree adorned with cocktails instead of baubles, these are some of the best bars around town for your next happy hour drinks this holiday season.


Located on Queen Street in Perth, Caballitos is the place to go for tacos and tequila-fuelled fiestas, including Cabillitos’ Christmas Eve Fiesta. The Mexican-style bar will also be concocting festive cocktail specials including two candy cane-inspired concoctions and a Margarita FIESTA Christmas Tree filled with classic and watermelon frozen margaritas for A$150. Tis the season!

The Flour Factory

Housed in a heritage building on Queen Street, The Flour Factory is the place to go for delicious gin cocktails. To get into the Christmas spirit, the bartenders at The Flour Factory are bringing back Buddy the Elf to magically discount six premium Gin & Tonics for A$12 each. They’ll also be assembling our favourite kind of Christmas tree: a GINgle Bell Tree filled with Christmas spice-infused tipples- priced at A$100 and subject to availability.

Bar Lafayette

Situated on the lower ground floor of the restored Perth Technical College, Bar Lafayette’s chesterfield lounges and antique decor whisks you away into a glamorous old-world cocktail bar. To kick off the Christmas holidays and escape the summer heat, head on down to Bar Lafayette’s End of Year Party on December 23 for live music and refreshing cocktails.


Situated on the top floor of Hibernian Place, Hadiqa is another top bar to venture to for festive drinks. Serving up decadent Turkish Delight Martini Christmas trees for A$150 and Black Forest Gateau cocktails, an afternoon tipple at Hadiqa is sure to get you in the Christmas spirit. The rooftop bar will also be hosting a Yin & Gin Christmas Edition event on December 18 where you can unwind with an hour of tranquil yin yoga flow followed by a fun Christmas gin masterclass.

The Standard

To continue the festive cheer, The Standard will be open from 12pm Fridays on December 10 and 17 so you can kick off your weekend with an afternoon cocktail or two. The Standard is also hosting Hawker Wednesdays if you’re in need of a mid-week pick me up of Asian street food-style eats and drinks.

Varnish on King

Tucked down in a basement on King Street lies whiskey bar Varnish on King, and for the lead up to Christmas, a whole lot of festive cocktails. Counting down to Christmas with 12 limited edition whiskey sips, Varnish is the place to be for Christmas-inspired drinks and tasty American bites.
