Get ready to wave the jazz hands as Perth is home to a slew of jazz bars to get you moving.
Fringing the CBD is Perth jazz institution, Ellington Jazz Club. It's a must-visit for any jazz enthusiast wanting to catch homegrown talents and touring musicians performing a range of musical styles. The intimate venue puts on a show most nights, with some evenings featuring multiple performances, so brace yourself for a full-body workout.
Elsewhere in the city is The Volstead Lounge. Need help figuring out where to look? Its entrance is hidden behind a timely 'study' near a colourful laneway, Shafto Lane. Find the right book on the shelf and get ready to party like it's the roaring twenties! Inside, the speakeasy jazz and cocktail bar oozes opulence and sophistication with its 1920s-inspired interior. Sip on speciality cocktails and saviour appetisers while enjoying this rousing time warp.
If seeking something more low-key, head to inner-city suburb Mount Hawthorn. Discreet or not-so-discreet is a local favourite, The Jazz Cellar, cleverly disguised behind an English icon, a red phone box. And once you make the call to go downstairs, three hours of feet tapping and hands clicking to live traditional jazz awaits. Only open on Fridays, this unique Perth jazz venue invites you to bring your own food and drinks for a merry time.
