Supporting your local has never been easier, thanks to The Local. And what better way to impress the pants off a date with some useless general knowledge?
The Local Hotel is a recently renovated public bar, casual diner and whiskey bar that hosts a wicked Thursday night trivia session, complete with a beachy clean cosy atmosphere – fireplaces included for the perfect post-trivia cuddle.
If trivia isn’t your thing, they’ve also just recently established the ‘Local Garage Pop Up Bar’ – a converted drive-through bottle shop and beer garden bar, open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings that plays host to a variety of local food trucks on Sunday afternoons.
The Local have also released eight boutique pub rooms perfect if you've accidentally had too much to drink and need to stay the night, or a calculated sleepover too! With names like The Snug Room, The Elephant Room & Dessert Sessions, each room is individually styled for personality fit, with beautiful views to boot.
Chilled | The Yoga Vine
Get in touch with your metaphysical side at The Yoga Vine. The Yoga Vine is a boutique yoga studio located in the heart of the CBD that offers a variety of classes and event programs seven days a week.
If you’re relatively new to yoga, try the Yin by Candlelight class and pop out for a wine afterwards – after all, life is about balance, right?
If you’re a seasoned Yogi, keep your eyes peeled on their website for upcoming events, such as the Karijini Cultural Retreat program, a four day cultural experience for those wanting to get in touch with the land, and their other half, through yoga.
Starry Night | Perth Observatory
Living a busy city life typically means a lack of star sighting opportunities, but the country’s oldest continuously operating professional observatory and Western Australia's premier astronomical institution can be the cure to your night time ail.
Located 25km east of Perth, the Observatory has been operating for 119 years and is a great off-the-beaten-track date idea. There’s the option to do your own thing, or if you’d rather someone else take the reins, they offer many tour options, including a Star Adoption tour if you feel the need to buy your date a serious piece of memorabilia.
Check their sun and moon calendar before locking in a visit, and let the Perth Observatory be the gateway to the universe for you and your partner.
