Ambar Nightclub – they were voted Perth’s #1 nightclub six years in a row from 2003 through 2008 by the Perth Dance Music Awards as well as #42 in the world by DJ Magazine. The club features music provided nightly by a variety of international DJ’s and is located slightly east of Perth’s central business district. This establishment is not for the faint of heart. Minimalist is more here while jeans and sneakers are never frowned upon as being appropriate dress for the evening.
Geisha Bar – the bar is an unashamedly elitist location so false modesty will not get you anywhere when spending the evening here. The $15 cover charge is a bit steep by nightlife standards, but this late-night sultry hideaway is anything but ordinary. The décor and theme of the club was inspired by the geisha girls of the Far East and features plenty of room for dancing, a couple of bars, and some space for more intimate experiences.
Leederville Hotel – nicknamed the “Leedy”, this is the #1 nightlife hotspots in the city every Wednesday night. It is situated in the heart of Perth’s Leederville District and the bar has been in existence for over 100 years. The venue here is all about inexpensive yet tasty drinks and a crowded dance floor.
Voodoo Lounge – patrons of this establishment are exposed to a bolder, more innovative approach to nighttime entertainment. The décor and lighting makes the atmosphere visually stimulating while taking the concept of a cabaret along with pole dancing to an unprecedented new level.
Elmars in the Valley- Set in the middle of the scenic Swan Valley, this German-styled brewery and pub is the largest micro-breweries in Australia. With award winning beers and wines, as per the stringent German Purity Law, you’ll have a memorable time.
