Mechanics Institute


Mechanics Institute is a small bar – access is via a rear laneway between James Street and Francis Street next door to State Library of Western Australia and City of Perth Parking Car Park.

Their rooftop terrace looks back over the cultural precinct and the city skyline.

They offer a selection of cocktails (changed daily), craft beer and artisan wine from around Australia and the world.

Bookings are available via email or their Facebook page.

The WA Good Food Guide is a celebration of all that is excellent in the Western Australian dining scene across all areas of cooking, entrepreneurship, wine, beer and service and this is what they have to say about Mechanics Institute, part of The Top 100 list – “An icon of the Perth bar scene, Mechanics Institute is a purist’s cocktail bar slinging high-quality drinks in a low-key setting.”
