Carpeted in astroturf, this stylish rooftop bar is one of the coolest places in Perth to grab a drink when the weather’s warm. The views, the vibe, the libations all the components are in place for a good night out. Based above the Birdcage bar and restaurant and part of the stylish, modern Perth entertainment venue The Aviary, the Nest is a cool, bright space, swathed in green with colourful patio furniture dotted about the place and an outdoor fire there to take the edge off cooler nights. There are day beds and parasols, even a small bowling green on which you can enjoy a game of lawn bowls should the mood take you. Us, we’d prefer to kick back with a beer or a nice crisp glass of white wine, maybe a flute of fizz if we’re feeling celebratory. There are DJ sets on weekends, when the bar stays open until 2am, and a cracking view of the gleaming city skyline which only improves as the sun sets and the space lights up for the night.
