There’s not much that beats sipping on an Aperol spritz while gazing out across the sparkling Swan River at sunset. Paired with the vivacious chatter of friends and glistening lights of the city skyline, it’s our idea of heaven. We’ve rounded up a list of Perth’s best rooftop bars — the créme de la créme, some would say. You’ll have no shortage of options for post-work drinks or weekend festivities, all you need to do is add them to your list.

What’s not to love about dumplings, cocktails, and rooftop views in East Fremantle? Sweetwater Rooftop Bar’s stylish, garden-infused interior is well-worth a gander for anyone eager to devour a delicious line-up of Asian-inspired share plates. And wash it all down with a handful of devilishly good alcoholic quenchers. Say less!

Songbird Bar — Perth

If you’re partial to panoramic Swan River vistas and carefully curated food and drink offerings, Songbird Bar is where the good times fly. Inspired by nature and the beautiful birds that fill our skies, The Ritz Carlton’s esteemed rooftop venue takes high-altitude drinking to the nines. Expect sweeping views of Elizabeth Quay, complemented by moody lighting, and glamorous decor. Not to mention cocktail combinations showcasing the unique flavours and characteristics of Australia’s native birdlife. You might have to fork out a little more, but it’s worth it for a little treat.

The Storehouse — Subiaco

The jewel in the crown truly does sit at the top, so pencil in the rooftop restaurant on the ninth floor of Subiaco’s Vibe Hotel as the location of your next cocktail night. Bowing to Scandinavian minimalism, the space exudes an elegant feel, with a refined interior and floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing uninterrupted panoramic CBD views.

AGWA Rooftop Bar — Perth

The new rooftop bar at The Art Gallery of Western Australia is a hidden gem fusing art, entertainment and the dreamy city skyline. Head here for something a little different as you ignite all your senses with an open-air sculpture walk, gallery spaces and food and beverages with a distinct WA taste.

The lush green vibes at Hadiqa are unmatched. Inspired by the Arabic word for “garden”, this Middle Eastern oasis provides a welcome escape from the concrete jungle surroundings of Perth. The intimate open-air, plant-peppered rooftop space boasts stunning city views, with a simple yet inspired interior. Pick a perch on the lounge, while picking at some signature share-style eats infused with Moroccan, Mediterranean and Greek flavours. Drink-wise, we recommend the fruity Turkish Delight Martini or Pandan Splice.

Tiki as Fk — Northbridge

This 60s inspired cocktail lounge might not be on your radar when it comes to the rooftop scene, but it definitely should be. Tiki as Fk brings fun and quirky to a new level with some of the best tropical cocktails you’ll try. Pair that with pumping music and knowledgeable staff who radiate contagious buzzing vibes. Get here ASAP.

Soak up picturesque views of the skyline and sunset at Perth’s newest rooftop bar. On the 18th floor of Quest East Perth, you’ll find Folly. Home to flourishing ferns and vines, the interior is a blend of natural wooden hues, neutral tones and sage green. Think inner city oasis perched high above the hustle and bustle. No matter where you find yourself standing or seated at Folly, you’ll be met with nearly 360° views. From the lustrous CBD, to the glowing Optus Stadium, watch the sun fall away on its wrap-around verandah. The cocktail menu provides a fresh twist on the classics while food reflects an array of fragrant, zesty, share plates, a product of ex-Wildflower chef, Jed Gerrard. 

The National Hotel — Fremantle

What’s better than 360-degree views in the heart of Fremantle? Once a shop, later a bank and now a cult favourite watering hole, The National Hotel boasts spectacular sights over the port and Rottnest. Oozing all things character and charm, the beautifully restored 1868-establishment stars a rooftop bar celebrating a range of premium international and local beers, wines and spirits. Grab a bunch of friends together and devise a plan to tackle the small’s menu and share plates.
