Did Perth invent the Sunday Session? While we can’t say for sure, it is fair to say we bloody love a tipple on a Sunday afternoon.
Especially as the weather warms up, the sunsets get a little bit hotter, and the silly season really kicks into gear. Here’s a bunch of our favourite Sunday Sessions around Perth:
Wilson Brewing Co. x The Left Bank
We’re definitely a sucker for a sunset over the ocean, but when it comes to The Left Bank the river will just have to do! And for the whole month of February The Left Bank is teaming up with Albany beer barons Wilson Brewing Co for an epic Sunday Session featuring $10 pints of Wilson Brewing Co, DJs and immaculate vibes. Get down early to secure your seat for the best Sunday sunset going around.
15 Riverside Road, East Fremantle
Once the raging dark and dirty dancefloor of Sundays on the Scarborough strip, El Grotto has matured in recent years and Cafe Del Grotto is the vibe. $14 margarita specials go with a tasty selection of share plates for $15, while DJs keep things grooving as the sun sets.
5/148 The Esplanade, Scarborough
Cottesloe Beach Hotel
One of Perth’s most iconic Sunday sesh spots got a face lift a few years ago and unlike a mid 40s housewife undergoing a midlife crisis by booking in too many visits to get stuff added/removed, this surgery was the perfect touch for Cottesloe Beach Hotel. White and green fill the courtyard so if you’re looking for a Hampton’s inspired vibe for your Sunday sesh, this is where you’ll want to be.
104 Marine Parade, Cottesloe
Scarborough Beach Bar
Being upstairs along the Scarborough strip you may miss it, but don’t because it has THE BEST view of Scarborough Beach hence why I find the name quite fitting. With a balcony that overlooks the strip and the beach, this little treasure just underwent a refurb that has brightened it up tenfold. The feeds are great as well so nab yourself a table on the balcony for unbeatable views.
Level 1/1 Manning Street, Scarborough
When you think of Sunday sesh, you always assume somewhere by the water but Si Paradiso doesn’t need an ocean sunset to bring you in. With a charming outdoor area and quaint indoor area, it’s suitable for a quiet or loud night. Put it on your list asap if you haven’t frequented, and make sure to dive in to their special Sunday Sesho menu, including $2 oysters!
1/446 Beaufort Street, Highgate
Rock’n’roll mainstay the Rosemount Hotel keeps things very vibey on Sunday afternoons in the lush surrounds of their beer garden, with DJs keeping things chill (although sometimes a dancefloor just can’t help itself) and excellent food and drink offerings.
459 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth
If you fancy a little boogie and sunshine in the city then The Bird’s beautiful courtyard is your best friend! Every Sunday a different crew usually provides the tunes, but you can pretty much guarantee things will get rowdy deep into those hot summer nights, all served up to a warm and inclusive crowd.
81 William Street, Northbridge
Doubleview Bowling Club
Starting up last year with an eye towards getting some more crew around the local bowlo, Doubleview Bowling Club’s Sunday Sessions have very quickly proven to be a great time for many! Finish off the weekend in style with a sunset over the bowls club including free barefoot bowls, disco-slinging DJs, drink specials and delicious Tommy Tacos from 3pm – you simply cannot go wrong.
17 Shearn Crescent, Doubleview
