Things to Do in Northbridge

Northbridge’s lively side buzzes late into the night. From rooftop movies, inspired cuisine to scavenger hunts, there is much to do in the area. Here are our top picks.

Pubs and Bars – The Standard

A harmonious fusion of bar and restaurant, the Standard offers an arty vibe, complete with a vibrant interior. Make your way through the summer garden courtyard towards the deck made out of shipping-containers to enjoy the Standard’s raffish appeal.

Pubs and Bars – Speakeasy – Sneaky Tony

You will need to know the password to get access to the speakeasy on Fridays and Saturdays, which they reveal on their Facebook page. Their hidden entrance by the way is behind 28 Roe Street. Sneaky Tony promises to kick off the year with refreshing summer cocktails. Their rum cocktails are pretty amazing. Try the Cherry Delight Cuban rum. The Dark and   Stormy (concocted with ginger beer and lime) is not too bad either.

The Adult Scavenger Hunt

The Adult Scavenger hunt was a hit during the Fringe World festival in 2020. This year, they are organizing standalone 90-minute epic adventures across multiple cities across Perth. You can meet the organizers on Friday or Saturday evenings at Russell Square in Northbridge to begin your adventure. You and your friends can separate into two groups and hop onto your own chauffeur driven rickshaws to take on hilarious, creative and above all exhilarating challenges one by one.  Crowned champions will clinch a special prize and of course bragging rights.  

Fringe World Festival 2021

This year, you get to paint the town Fringe from January 15th to February 14th. There is much fringing from which you can pick your favourites. They have cabaret and variety shows, comedy events, dance and physical theatre, theatre and performance, street performances, visual arts and film and plenty of music. They even have a lineup of kids’ events from Best of Edinburg Kids to Mermaids.

Rooftop Movies 2021

Northbridge’s biggest outdoor cinema, Rooftop Movies has returned with a delectable selection and its ever panoramic views. The venue sits atop the Perth Roe Street Carpark, and there is a choice of seating including beanbags and deck chairs. They even have a premium lounge with double beanbags. The scheduled programme includes the old classic ‘Dead Poets Society’ and ‘The Furnace.’ All you have to do is buy some snacks and bevvies to settle down for a memorable night under the stars.
