Food, Fashion And Fun: Our guide to spending a day at Karrinyup
From date night dining and retail therapy to blockbuster movies and wellness from head to toe, there’s something exciting happening at just about every hour of the day at Karrinyup.
To prove it, we’ve put together the ultimate itinerary to explore Karrinyup over a jam-packed day of fashion, fun and delicious dining.
Keep It Caffeinated
We don’t know about you, but we need a coffee or two to get our day off to a good start – and Karrinyup has a coffee option practically around every corner. Soak up the morning sunshine on the West Deck with a coffee from Little Laika: the little sister to the popular Lathlain brunch spot, they’ll also keep you fuelled with a delicious brekkie.
If you’re feeling the old-school vibes, L’Americano Espresso Bar is serving up some absolutely lush Italian Riviera retro style alongside their Vittoria coffee, or pop into Health Freak for a signature freshly squeezed juice or smoothie bowl that you can feel extra good about indulging in.
Or, if you’re feeling extra fancy, why not enjoy a complimentary coffee after dropping your car off at the Centre’s convenient valet parking?
High-Powered Pilates And Mindful Meditation
Keep the good vibes going by stopping into the Centre’s tranquil wellness club, Synkro. With a huge timetable of classes, Synkro will look after your mind, body and spirit, whether you’re stretching and sweating with a session of reformer pilates from boutique studio Dynamic Pilates, aligning your chi with a class of qigong, a session of gentle flow yoga or let out some steam with some boxing. That’s not to mention the team of health practitioners on hand to help you feel your ultimate best!
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Of course, you can’t talk about Karrinyup without mentioning the stylish star of the show: all the shopping on offer! The Loop is home to all things fashion, with an illustrious lineup of Australian and international brands – including Nude Lucy, Bec + Bridge, Aje, Viktoria & Woods, Assembly Label, Sass & Bide and countless more. Plus, look extra chic at that gym sesh or pilates class at Synkro with a visit to Aje Athletica, Hyperluxe or Stylerunner. (Or look extra chic lounging on the couch – no judgement here!)
If that sounds a little overwhelming to you, there’s a gun team of personal stylists available who can refresh your wardrobe for that snazzy new job or find the perfect glamorous look for an upcoming event.
As well as fashion, amplify your gorgeousness with one of Karrinyup’s bounteous beauty offerings.
Delve into Korean and Japanese beauty at Koyo Cosmetics – browsing those rows of serums, essences and masks, how could anyone resist a ten-step skincare routine? The beauty gurus at Sephora and Mecca can sort you out with everything under the sun, from sleek skincare and nourishing hair products to bold and beautiful makeup.
You’ll be feeling bougie, supple and smelling absolutely delectable with a spritz of Parisian glamour from Christian Dior Beauty & Parfum, or step into Australian skincare powerhouse Aesop for their signature soothing vibes.
Of course, why not get it all in one spot? Myer’s beauty hall boasts row after gleaming row of luxe beauty brands, as well as cult beauty favourites like The Ordinary and experimental sister brand NIOD.
Time For Lunch?
Long gone are the days where an afternoon at the shops meant a lacklustre meal: Karrinyup is the proof! Whatever level you’re on, there’s dining that’s worth the trip alone – from Authentic Bites’ iconic dumplings, Baguette Me Not’s epic bánh mì, bullet-train inspired sushi from Super Tetsudo or Topi’s flavour-packed tiffins. Feeling like staying a while? Settle in under the sunshine for one of Good Company’s luscious pizzas and a rather temptingly long list of cocktails.
Head To The Flicks
You thought we were done? Not by a long shot! After you’ve finished up with your lunch, you can catch the latest blockbuster movie at the huge 10-cinema HOYTS. Along with luxe recliners and huge screens, it’s also home to WA’s first ever D-BOX auditorium. One of only five in the country, the seats rumble, roll and move in sync with whatever you’re watching on screen.
Spicy Suppers And Dandy Dinners
As we’ve already mentioned, there are so many excellent dining options at Karrinyup – but we will always look for any excuse to head to Dandelion. We dream endlessly about the beef short rib sprinkled with caramelised peanuts and we’ve spent more than a few evenings trying to recreate the smoked curry butter and roti in our own kitchens (without much success).
If you’re feeling extra spicy, Spice Market’s fiery and fragrant Thai fare is a must, while just across the West Deck you can dive into a bowl of O Mare Mio’s signature chilli mussels or pasta.
24 years since first opening their doors, Arirang is one of Perth’s KBBQ OGs… And what better way to round out a day of shopping than with succulent Korean grilled meats? Just make sure to leave room for a Biscoff-crumbed or cinnamon-glazed Pretzel for dessert.
Bowl The Night Away
What, did you think we’d just tell you to enjoy your dinner and go home? Nuh-uh! There’s still hours more fun to be had at the endlessly entertaining West Deck. Put your competitiveness to the test with a round of arcade games at Archie Brothers Cirque Electric, test your skills with a round of themed mini golf at Holey Moley, or bowl your date over with your excellent aim (and excellent charm) at Strike Bowling. With a fully kitted-out cocktail bar, you can really keep the fun going all night!
