From natty wine novices to craft beer crusaders, these boutique bottle shops across Perth can hook you up with some of the best booze in town.

Stuart St Cellars

Just off the bustling Stirling Highway and only moments away from Mossie Park station, Stuart St Cellars is from the same team as Pep’s Wine Bar – itself situated less than a kilometre down the highway.

Much like Pep’s, the bottle shop’s range leans Australian, although not strictly so, with a kind of footloose-and-fancy-free, interesting-but-easy drinking approach – with plenty of drops best enjoyed with soaking up beach sunsets or lazing on the lawn. (You’ll be able to taste plenty of these at Stuart St’s weekly Thursday Open Bottle, which they describe as “taste while you browse” – with a rather nifty discount, too.)

While certainly wine-focused, you’ll also find a selection of pre-batched cocktails (including from local outfits Idle Hands and Republic of Fremantle), plus a concise-but-growing collection of craft beer.

The Wine Thief

This suburban West Leederville bottle shop is like a shimmering treasure trove. With a lovingly curated collection of wine, beer, cider and spirits, The Wine Thief is the perfect spot to pick up something unique – particularly if you’re looking for something beautifully packaged to gift someone special. Make sure to drop into the attached Coffee Thief for a killer coffee if it’s a bit early in the day to crack open the vino.

Freo Doctor

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Freo’s main strip, the Freo Doctor is slinging drinks as refreshing as the sea breeze it’s named after. Championing the weird and wonderful from near and far, they’ll also sort you out with classic drops – whether you’re in the market for a no-nonsense wine from the South West or a top-shelf Japanese whiskey. But hey, why trust us? Just ask Margot!

Mane Specialist Bottleshop

With over 1000 different beers in stock, Mane’s Belmont store has long been heralded as Perth’s ultimate craft beer mecca. Beer isn’t the end of it, though – their wine and spirit offerings are equally impressive, alongside a robust, expansive collection of hot sauces, pickles and other pantry goodies, as well as an affinity for some crowd-drawing pop ups and carpark parties with Perth food greats.

This kind of ambitious range can’t be contained to just one store though! A mammoth second store in Osborne Park opened in March 2023, which means they’ve been doling out even more of their good stuff.

The Re Store

It goes without saying, but if you’re looking for good eating and good drinking, the Re Store should be top of your list. The Leederville store is home to an extensive bottle shop, with both local and international drops available. Stop by for a chat to the resident experts and you’ll be sure to leave with a new favourite tipple, and make sure to mark your calendars for their legendary annual 30% liquor sale.

231 Oxford Street, Leederville


When we first wrote about Besk, it was as a highly anticipated opening – in the intervening years it’s become an integral part both of West Leederville’s burgeoning precinct, and for craft drinking across the city. The bar has gone from strength to strength: you only have to visit on a Friday evening to see the ardent following it has accrued, but the bottle shop stands on its own, too. Co-owned by Mane Liquor‘s Elliot Moore, you know they’re all about interesting, off-beat finds.

Wise Child Wine Store

Once tucked away on a leafy corner in North Freo, now in a charming shop on Freo’s Market Street, Wise Child is a family-run bottle shop with a big focus on organic and naturally fermented wines. While it’s a delight to pop into in person, if you’re short on time (too busy at the beach tbh), why not jump online and order a party pack for delivery?

Old Bridge Cellars

“So, what are we drinking?” asks Old Bridge Cellars’ awning. “One of everything”, you will reply on the way out. This North Freo spot has been around for yonks, and you’re sure to leave with something you never expected – it might even be a North Street Store cinnamon bun, or a La Paleta icecream. The drinks pairing you never knew you needed. And as if we couldn’t love them any more, these legends have expanded in 2021 to another store in Como – so it’s even easier to get your hands on a good drop.

Commune Wine Store

Arriving to Maylands nearly two and a half years ago, Commune Wine Store has proven itself a valuable addition to the neighbourhood, with a second Subi store currently in the works. While they’re beloved by locals, their lush selection of delicious drops – focusing on boutique, minimal intervention, natural and lo-fi wines from small independent producers – is well worth travelling for, particularly when they’re hosting one of their frequent tastings or private wine classes.

Liberty Liquors

The older vintages amongst us will recall the Liberty Liquors of the ’80s, which grew into a hugely successful, Australia-wide chain, later bought out and rebranded as BWS. Well, reminisce no more, because the OG Liberty Liquors is back and better than ever. Reopening in 2018, the Claremont store is jam packed with a breathtaking range of wines, as well as spirits, craft beers and more.

Wines Of While

It would be remiss of us to describe Wines of While as anything close to a one-stop-shop, superstore of wine. Rather, they are a testament to curation – with a wine selection available both dine in or takeaway that is as judiciously edited as their menu and fit-out. This clarity has earned them legions of admirers, though, with a steady stream of stylish clientele any night of the week.

Boobook Bottles and Bar

Founded in 1911, Boobook Bottles and Bar (formerly Gangemi’s) know a thing or two about fine wine. And about most drinkable things, now we think of it. Whisky, sake and everything in between – these guys will even fill up a growler of craft beer for you. While you can still peruse the expansive bottle shop’s shelves for something special to take home – you can now also enjoy a glass or two in store, perched in the window watching the world go by.

La Vigna

The first wine store in WA to have a purpose-built, underground wine cellar, La Vigna is not messing around when it comes to wine. This allows them to stock rare and aged wines from around the world, keeping them in perfect condition until their new owner (read: you) comes along.

North Bird

North Bird has gone through many transformations in its relatively short life, but it’s happily found its groove. Little bit European, a lot Australian; part restaurant, part bar, part bottle shop – it’s the go-to spot for wining and dining in Northbridge.

Free Spirit Drink Co.

Taking a break from the booze? Just because you’re cutting out alcohol, you don’t need to miss out on something delicious! For a truly mammoth selection of non-alcoholic beveraginos, you can’t go past Free Spirit Drink Co. Head to their Applecross store (or their website) to check out the expansive range, which includes delightful refreshments from brands like Yes You Can, Naked Life, Molly Rose Brewing Co, Nocktail, NON and heaps (heaps!) more.
