PERTH | 399 Bar is a great example of what a small bar should be. It’s run by the guys who own Five Bar and Lot Twenty, and is refreshingly relaxed and unpretentious about how it goes about things. First, there’s no dress code – how many times do you see a bar proudly advertise that. A quick glance around the bar reveals and assortment of types from all walks of life enjoying themselves. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, with an eclectic playlist featuring all kinds of music.
The fitout is a little bit retro, with booths, cushions, stools and some outdoor seating out the front and back. Cocktails are the specialty here, and the friendly staff will happily mix up a classic for you, or something more interesting if you so desire. We highly recommend 399’s version of the Blood & Sand. If it’s something else you’re after, there’s a decent wine selection and around 30 different craft beers across the taps and fridges, and even Emu Export if you want.
For food it’s bar snacks like cheese and charcuterie, but if you want something more substantial you’re free to being in food from any number of the fantastic restaurants nearby.
