QT Perth

Mar 19, 2019

Moments from Swan River in Perth’s revitalized CBD, this new urban hotel makes an ideal base for suits who don’t like to sacrifice on style. With its slick rooftop bar (the highest in Perth), Italian-themed Santini Bar & Grill steakhouse, and multiple events rooms, this artful stay is the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Australiana design accents of cockatoo wallpaper and native motifs keep it local and lighthearted, while the in-room espresso machines, free pilates classes and fully kitted-out gym appeal to those religious about their routine. — Jenny Hewett

IDLEWILD

Fly high in this live-music bar decorated with golden-age-of-travel paraphernalia, including a cabinet of curiosities featuring rare and exotic spirits (go ahead, ask for a tasting shot). Bartender Andy Griffiths has a few kitchen shenanigans up his sleeve.

Food & Drink

Bann Bar & Cuisine

Downtown’s artsiest little cocktail bar is an eclectic affair. You might catch a stand-up comedy act, live band, or simply a DJ playing mellow electronica melodies on the higher, seventh floor—that’s also the ideal spot to enjoy sundowners with a cooling breeze coming off the Saigon river.
