The best of Perth's Northern Quarter

The Northern Quarter of Perth - that little pocket between Northbridge and Mount Lawley -

is filled with urban, creative soul. If you haven’t discovered the Northern Quarter yet, then you’re in for a treat, there’s cafés, restaurants, bars and entertainment, artistic spaces and creative faces! We have pulled together a brief overview here but will be bringing you more information about these awesome places to you soon.

Food

 

Brika - 3/177 Stirling St, Perth

Perth’s best Greek restaurant by far! Brika has a rustic setting and serves delicious and rich Greek food like spanakopita, chargrilled calamari and slow cooked lamb. The vibe is lively with authentic music playing in background, there’s also a selection of ouzo so go and get your Greek on! There’s also an interesting wall mural that has a great back story – we’ll tell you more soon :)

 

P'tite Ardoise Bistro - 283 Beaufort Street, Highgate

This little French bistro is delightful and cosy. This bistro is exactly what you would expect of a French bistro – the food is well thought out, flavoursome and beautifully presented. Traditional French dishes such as soufflé, confit duck and snails are on offer and gives you taste of what you would enjoy in Paris. The waiters are all French and that just adds that little bit of France to the atmosphere. We say oui oui!

 

Coffee

Source foods - 4/289 Beaufort Street, Highgate

This little café is one of those places where people queue to buy a coffee in the morning.  They also have organic coffee and red espresso on the menu.  Source Foods pride themselves on being a sustainable and organic establishment, and their menu ranges from Chia & Oat Bircher to various gluten free options.

 

Lunch

This eatery is always buzzing and loved by locals. They are also well known for their pies which are baked by the chef, each individually made with care. Tuck Shop Café is a reliable and consistent café with enjoyable food and a laid back vibe.

 

Drink

The Brisbane - 292 Beaufort Street, Perth

The Brisbane is an institution in the Northern Quarter. There is a large bar and spacious beer garden which is ideal for after work drinks or a catch up with friends. Sip on a charming cocktail or order one of the many craft beers available and take in the ambience of the vibrant Brisbane Hotel.

 

Entertainment

Ellington Jazz Club - 191 Beaufort St, Perth

Situated on Beaufort Street, the Ellington Jazz club features world class jazz acts in an intimate setting. This jazz club’s décor is dark and moody and has both an upstairs and downstairs area.

They have a small but charming menu if you feel like nibbling on something while you sit back with a glass of wine taking in the sound of music.

There will also be eateries that will have their food on display and heaps of entertainment such as a cook off and acoustic acts. The festival will take place from 23-25 October.

 

Artistic Spaces and Creative Faces

Monk is a little design studio on Bulwer Street full of creative folk doing some pretty awesome work in all things design.

Do Re Media, also on Bulwer Street, is a boutique social media and content agency run by Perth creatives Delilah Walsh and Mel Anastas. They focus on clients who are culturally, socially and/or environmentally responsible – cool huh? They also love a bit of storytelling and know that social media can be used to create meaningful business relationships and connections through authentic information, networking and community.

Owner Delilah also fronts a band called Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers - a refreshingly earnest wild west bunch hailing from all over the eastern wheatbelt. DRG’s sound is good-natured countrified folk-a-billy, Delilah’s writing carries the soul of deep South America to the doorstep of rural WA and finds a home in tales of our own Wild West.
