The Sunday sesh: Perth’s big 5!

Do as the Western Aussies do and say ‘Catch ya’ to snoozy Sundays and hello to Sunday sessions! Whether it’s a go hard or go home (at 10pm) kind of deal, a few beers by the beach or a perfectly crafted cocktail on a rooftop, we’ve broken down our pick of the bunch to show that Perth has got you covered.

1. Cottesloe Beach Hotel, Cottesloe

Deliciously fresh seafood, a glass (or many) of Margaret River wine and some seriously glammed up individuals? This year-round Sunday sesh is a classy affair or at least that’s how it begins!

2. The Nest at the Aviary, Perth CBD

More city dweller than beach bum? Round off the weekend amongst the skyscrapers at Perth’s largest rooftop bar. A vibrant combo of multi-coloured seating, astro-turf and feel-good vibes from live DJ’s. They even throw in a sky line sunset to ogle at, cocktail in hand.

3. Ocean Beach Hotel, Cottesloe

After catching a wave on Cottesloe beach and a quick change from ‘thongs’ to shoes join the crowds that swarm to OBH for its banging beats and sundowners. You’ll find the beer garden rammed and kicking off until closing with old school hip-hop and RnB so be prepared to get you dance face on.

4. Little Creatures, Freemantle

Despite its vast size, be prepared to fight for your seat at this Perth favourite! Ease yourself in with the brewery’s tasting board (one each?) before heading outdoors and digging in to a bowl of their famously moreish fries washed down with a couple of cold ones. You can even have a pre-party on the Qantas flight there and sip on Little Creatures beers up in the air.

5. Embargo Bar, multiple Perth spots

If drinking in a converted shipping container isn’t edgy enough, Embargo throws in a roof deck, live entertainment and a selection of food trucks to force even the coolest foodie to jump for joy. If you like your booze eclectic and served up with a feast, be sure to check out this touring bar.

So, if the January blues are getting you down, head for the most sunshine filled town in Australia (3200 hours a year) and ditch Sunday as the day of rest and make it the day of the SESH.

BUT getting to the land Down Under all starts with a lengthy flight (eek). But there’s now no need to hang around in airports… Fly direct to Perth from London Heathrow on a Qantas Dreamliner from 25 March 2018 – making cruising the sky comfortable and spacious with snacks on tap at the bar and a snazzy mood light integrated into the seat. Now THAT we can handle! Fancy exploring two destinations in one? Pit stop at the cultural hot pot that is Singapore on route.
