Are themed bars, food tastings and cocktail masterclasses your drink of choice? Well, you’re in luck because Perth’s first festival dedicated to the city’s bustling boozy scene is heading your way.
A salute to the art of cocktails and mixology, the Perth Cocktail Festival will take over the spectacular surrounds of Crown Parklands for three days of shaken and stirred fun next month.
Perth’s favourite bars and restaurants have joined forces to showcase the crème de la crème of cocktails and small batch booze from around the globe. You may not be able to travel, but it doesn’t mean your taste buds can’t, so get ready to pick your poison.
Take a trip to Espresso Martini Land to indulge in an ice cold, creamy delight that will keep you buzzed for the rest of the session, before losing yourself in a tiki playground with tropical rum cocktails at Island Time. Relax at The Gin Garden and taste your way through gin-inspired drinks from some of the UK and Europe’s swankiest bars; continue your worldly ventures at Sakura Saloon, inspired by the finest Japanese landscapes and liquors; or pay Once Upon a Time in Mexico a visit — tequilas, tacos and margaritas, need I say more?
Learn the secret behind your favourite drink as you watch a cocktail show by the best of the best, or try your hand at one of the masterclasses with specialty mixologists and better your bartending skills.Then fill up on the delicious options on offer from several exciting restaurant pop ups. Exactly which restaurants will be providing the goods is yet to be confirmed, but the word on the street is we’re in for a top-tier mix of grazing boards, drool-worthy burgers and everything in between.
Once you satisfy your cravings, dance the day (or night) away to the DJs delivering funky beats or lose yourself in the silent disco. With a few cocktails in your system, you might even bring out your best rendition of an old classic at the karaoke bar.
If you’re looking for something a little more laid back, however, you’ve still got options. Sip away and relax in the shade and enjoy the rolling green grass and beautiful Burswood foreshore.
