Thirsty? Following the lead of most other Australian capitals, Perth's small-bar scene has exploded over the past decade, with Central Perth's many laneways and hidden urban nooks proving bountiful terrain for bar-owners and barflies alike. Add to this an established congregation of old-school Perth pubs, and you'll never be far from a cold beer in Central Perth. There are a few decent clubs here, too, if your tastes extend more towards drum and bass than craft beer and whisky sours.
