Young Love Mess Hall

International in Northbridge

A mix of bespoke and classic cocktails, wide spread of Western Australian craft beers on tap, and chatty barkeeps will keep bar flies happy, while the walk-in only policy for restaurant diners means staff are eager to accommodate. The place heaves on Friday and Saturday evenings, and is quieter during the day, but with less atmosphere.

Regarded as one of Perth’s most beautiful restaurants, Young Love brings together a dreamy, underwater-feel emerald backdrop with leafy plants cascading from skylights and a long, charcoal bar just made for perching. Artful cocktails are a strongsuit, though the inventive, globally-inspired share-food also scores highly. It’s the perfect place for a first date, young love or old. Placed in the heart of the buzzing inner-city hub of Northbridge, there’s plenty to do both before and after. Trust us, you’ll be smitten.
