The stress on local businesses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has been massive, and all told we’re not even close to knowing its full impact.
As of today, Monday 18 May, there is a small light at the end of the tunnel for some businesses, with indoor gathering restrictions easing (slightly) to help cafes, restaurants and bars begin to re-open for dine-in eating and drinking.
As we did with restaurants pivoting to a takeaway model at the beginning of the restrictions, we’ll be updating the below list of establishments who are opening up for bookings in the coming days/weeks (and if you wanna hit us up direct send us an email – [email protected] with “Perth Dine-In” in the subject).
Assume all listings below will be adhering to a strict 20 person capacity along with having to order food with your drink and go forth friends, support businesses where you can, and remember to do so as safely as possible!
