Varnish on King

Cocktail Bar in Central Perth

With edgy shopping, cafes and bars, lower King St shouldn't be overlooked. Amid the hipster barber shop and single-origin coffee is this brick-lined homage to American whiskey. More than 200 are available, best sampled with a bacon flight (yes, you read right). The open-late kitchen serves meaty yet refined fare. Think beef tendon chips with ash mayo.
