The bucks party is arguably one of the most fun aspects of the pre-wedding tasks, that’s if you ask the groom-to-be and his team of groomsmen (brides may disagree). To celebrate this moment correctly, finding the right venue is a critical first step.
To help, we’ve listed five of the best bucks party venues in Perth to ensure a memorable evening is had. We’ve also provided variety to suit every groom’s personality.
When choosing a venue, it’s essential to consider the group size, location, and, most importantly, the drinks list. We can save you some research time during your bucks party planning with this article that lists the top five venues in Perth for a night of clean, wholesome fun, so read on.
If you think a night of partying at one of the oldest pubs in Perth sounds boring or maybe too uncool, you’ve clearly never been to The Globe! Its colonial charm has been given a modern update, including a vertical garden in the main bar and walls adorned with aerosol murals from local artist Jerome Davenport. The Globe sets the tone for a stylish but wickedly fun night out for the buck and his tormentors.
The venue’s large beer garden is a very attractive prospect for a night with the lads, and there is plenty of delicious pub-style meals to line the stomachs. The burgers, in particular, are a popular choice, be it the classic cheeseburger, steak sanga or Korean fried chicken sandwich. The beer list is extensive, and all of the classic cocktails are on offer, like the very alcoholic long island ice tea that should make short work of the groom-to-be.
There really is nothing in Perth like partying on The Aviary’s open-air rooftop. The city skyline is an amazing backdrop for any gathering, let alone the buck’s last night of freedom. The rooftop oasis is unquestionably the venue’s drawcard, but you can also book The Lounge on the first level to enjoy a negroni at the large marble bar or the hidden garden area for a more intimate event.
The menu ensures everyone in attendance has easy access to pizzas, burgers and plates of small bites, and the beer and cocktail list is so big that you never have to drink the same thing twice. We recommend matching your drinks to the theme of the roof by ordering the Captain O’ Captain cocktail served in a mini Tiki God.
You’ve likely sipped a James Squire brew before, and one of their fully functioning microbreweries happens to reside in the heart of Perth City! If a bucks party at a brewery doesn’t sound like the perfect match, then we don’t know what does. The Generous Squire pairs their freshly brewed brews with a signature burger menu that has been specifically tailored to match the craft beer range on offer.
You can hold your party anywhere in the venue, but the two best options for a bucks evening are Lucy’s Lounge (named after James Squire’s mistress) which takes you upstairs for a semi-private event or the fully private rooftop garden, which has its own private bar. If your groom likes a beer, you couldn’t possibly get him any closer to the source than this!
If your crew is known for catch-ups at the local, why not extend this idea for the buck’s party and hold it at the ultimate local? If you were to take every great, classic Aussie pub and combine them, you’d end up with The Bassendean Hotel. This spot, which has been slinging cold ones since 1930, takes the elements of a country pub (sports bar, beer garden, etc.) and washes it all in modern country charm.
People-watch Parker Street from the outdoor saloon area or sip on some fine spirits in Gallagher’s vintage speakeasy bar. You can head up to the balcony overlooking Old Perth Road for some fresh air or book out the private Swan Room to ensure all activities remain behind closed doors. The menu includes every pub classic you can think of, and there is plenty of variety across the beer taps. If the groom is known for a cheeky pint at the pub, send him off via Perth’s finest.
The Irish call bucks parties “stag” parties, so if you want to party (and drink) like the Irish, you may as well do it in Perth’s first authentic Irish Pub. Durty Nelly’s in Shafto Lane is the best place for some traditional Irish food and the best Guinness in the WA. You can even combine the two and enjoy their signature golden Beef & Guinness pie before drinking the night (and the stag) away.
There are two areas to hang out at Nelly’s, the Brew Bar and the outdoor areas of said bar. They keep it simple so you can soak in all of the wild Irish goodness the spot has to offer on the stag’s big night. Kick things off with an Irish Coffee to ensure your stag is energised for the night ahead, and settle in to drink like the Irish.
This old pub with a completely new look is a top tier choice! Whether you’ve got long standing memories from this pubs past life or it’s your first time visiting, The Claremont Hotel will not disappoint with epic vibes and a rooftop to match.
Soak up live music and an epically good drinks menu with enough space for all your mates with multiple different bars and spaces! Our suggestion? Head in early for a bite to eat, the menu is 100% worth it and a full stomach is never a bad way to kickstart a night.
As we all know, what happens at the bachelor party stays at the bachelor party, and you can make sure that the celebration before the big day is a good one with help from the above venues. Australian Venue Co. is here to make sure that special moments and memorable nights are marked with great surroundings, quality food and the perfect drink selection. So make sure your buck says goodbye to life and hello to the wife the right way!
