Mrs Browns, North Fremantle
The North Freo wine bar – with its cosy fireplace,
great wine list, and board games if the conversation
runs a little dry – has all the fixings for a relaxed first
date. Plus, if your date doesn’t bowl you over, the
Don Draper dead ringer behind the bar will.
Bathers Beach Markets followed by
comedy at Little Comedy Lounge, Fremantle
So date numero uno went well, huh? Chances are you
discovered all the important credentials over a glass
of wine, and they made the cut. Now, it’s time to
relax and have some fun. The Bathers Beach Sunset
Markets are romantic without being clichéd – sip
a fresh drinking coconut with your street food and
watch the sun go down. But don’t call it a night there.
Here at Perth Guide, we reckon no sense of humour
is a deal breaker, so find out if your date can partake
in the lolz at comedy night.
Lalla Rookh then Laneway Lounge, CBD
You know what the third date means, right?
Winky wink. It’s time to impress, so order some
shucked oysters at Lalla Rookh (we hear they’re
an aphrodisiac), then mosey on down to Laneway
Lounge. Our readers are a big fan of the bar for its
cocktails, smooth jazz and sultry-as -hell decor.
Breakfast at Bib & Tucker and a walk on
Leighton Beach, North Fremantle
If the third date was a success, chances are you’re
waking up next to them. Why say goodbye so soon?
Stroll down Leighton Beach before having some
buttermilk and blueberry pancakes at Bib & Tucker.
Rooftop Movies, CBD.
Several respondents suggested this as their fave date
spot, and we can see why. Cult movies and kitsch
decor give the place street cred, but the outdoor
setting and pop-up vans make it romantic. Order
pizza from Dough and settle in. And if it’s a little
breezy? All the more reason to get snuggly.
Bowling at Rosemount Bowl then a cocktail
degustation at the Classroom, North Perth
A bit of playful competition can really reveal
someone’s true colours – but will they bowl you
over or just strike out? Make like high-school kids
and have a date at the bowling alley, then continue
the throwback at The Classroom, which has cleverly
themed cocktail degustation nights (we won’t tell
your teacher if you have a few too many).
Clarence’s, Mount Lawley
It’s time to get to know each other’s friends. We
suggest you both invite your pals to Clarence’s on
Sunday, where you can get to know them (read: suck
up) while sipping on ginger-infused ciders in the sun.
Leederville Food Safari then Bill’s Bar
and Bites, Leederville
Go for a progressive dinner in Leederville at Ria,
Kitsch and Foam. And if three venues weren’t
enough, have a nightcap at Bill’s Bar and Bites – our
readers reckon it’s one of the best date joints around.
Wine tasting, Swan Valley
Talk about make-or-break – nothing blossoms or
bludgeons a relationship like a day trip with a longish
car ride. But wine tasting across the Swan Valley can
be one of the most romantic experiences out. If you
get tipsy (and haven’t thrown a glass of wine on your
date’s head yet), stay the night at a nearby hotel.
Picnic at King’s Park
Pack a basket and a bottle of vino – it’s time to pop
the exclusivity question. Congrats, you made it!
