The most common place to enjoy a night out in Perth is a in a pub or bar. Perth also has a fairly decent club culture as well for those of you who wish to party into the small hours of the morning. Normal opening hours for pubs are from 11am to midnight (Mon-Sat) and 11am to 10pm (Sun) but most places stay open until 2am at the weekends. Some bars actually have 24-hour licenses but very few actually stay open all night. Opening hours of clubs vary but they will generally close between 3am and 6am. The standard drink in Perth is draught beer, a ten ounce (half-pint) glass is known as a middy which should cost you around $2 and the larger fifteen-ounce glass is known as a schooner and will cost around $3. Bottled beers will cost between $4-5 in most places and a glass of wine will cost around $4. Cocktails are also a popular choice in Perth and remember to keep an eye out for happy hours in many pubs where a wide selection of cocktails can be bought usually at half price.
