PERTH | AGWA Rooftop Bar underwent a year-long renovation in 2020/21. As part of the revamp, the rooftop was transformed into a 500 person capacity bar and outdoor gallery.
It’s an impressive space, offering 360-degree views of the Perth CBD skyline, accessible from the Perth Cultural Centre via the new external glass lift and sky-bridge. It completes the original architectural intention for the 1979 brutalist building, which was imagined by architect Charles Sierakowski as a vantage point for visitors.
Behind the bar you’ll find food and beverages showcasing Western Australian producers. There’s also live DJs playing late into the night. Perfect for a sunset drink overlooking the CBD.
The AGWA rooftop is also home to a gallery and sculpture walk, featuring permanent and temporary artworks. Of particular note is the 34-metre long commission by Noongar-Minang artist Christopher Pease, which wraps along the rooftop wall.
