After a nice long swim in the refreshing ocean, soaking up some of the strong Australian sun and working on your calf muscles from strolling along the sand, going for a nice cool drink is the perfect way to end the day. You don’t even need to leave Cottesloe! Keep things easy by learning of the bars and pubs in the area so that you can plan your day smoothly. Never mind about having to find a bus time table or a car space when you can just walk everywhere.  We have a multitude of properties in Cottesloe and surrounds, which means that the walk to the beach is only a few minutes away.  If you are if you are dressed appropriately, we suggest heading back to your accommodate before hitting up one of these venues as dress standards do apply.

Always bustling on a Sunday afternoon, the Ocean Beach Hotel is a favourite amongst many Perth locals and is considered one of Western Australia’s living land marks. With spectacular ocean views, patrons have prime position to watch one of Perth’s famous sunsets. There are large windows that open up to let the sea breeze so you can watch the sunset in summer despite the sometimes overwhelming heat. The venue has a Saloon Bar, a Public Bar with a beer garden and the C blu bar. All bars serve food and the Public Bar also features televisions showing the latest sporting events and pool tables. Trading hours are; Monday to Thursday 10am – 10.00pm, Friday and Saturday 10 am – 11pm and Sunday 10am – 9:30pm. The perfect way to spend a summer’s night in Cottesloe!

If you are after more or bar feel than a pub feel, then Elba is the place for you. Elba is highly recommended, especially for the food, the long wine list and atmosphere. The staff members are friendly and knowledgeable when it comes to the drinks menu. One thing to note is that there are no ocean views. Opening hours are; Monday-Thursday 3pm – late and Friday – Sunday 12 – late. We suggest picking a bottle of wine and a share plate for a great night.

Another place that guests should visit during their stay in Cottesloe is the Cottesloe Beach Hotel. This venue reflects much of what Cottesloe is about. It has a happy atmosphere, fresh local food and looks over the Indiana Tea House and the beach. The Beach Club and the Cott & Co. Fish Bar both have an air of sophistication and style. The Verandah Bar is more relaxed and suitable for those who want to enjoy the view, come from the beach and prefer more of a pub vibe. There is plenty to pick from on both the drinks and food list so you won’t have to worry about going hungry.
