In the early 1900s The Dominion League was formed in the rise of the Secession movement. Paying tribute to this passionate group more than 80 years later, this appropriately named bar celebrates everything to love about Western Australia. With a classic pub-style bar located on street level, covering the mischief that occurs in the speakeasy-style den lying beneath, the staff at the Dominion League are dedicated to the art of cocktails. Featuring an extensive range of fine spirits, they also offer fine wines and craft beer on tap that is changed regularly according to customer’s votes. So, if you’re a true blue West Aussie, celebrate the state over a drink (almost) any day of the week.
Frisk. Small Bar
If you’re not a fan of the really popular bars, then head over to Frisk. Small Bar, specially if you’re an avid gin lover. Entering a world that embraces this choice of spirit, you can enjoy local gins, or try something from afar, perhaps the UK, Spain or France? If you’re looking for a classic gin and soda, of course they stir this concoction up, but why not add a little twist or choose from one of their inventive gin-inspired cocktails.
