The third installment of the Flipside burger bar + small wine bar combo comes in the form of Flipside Northbridge and Mechanics’ Institute. Head around the back of 222 William St (the lane runs between James and Francis Streets) and climb the stairs to this fantastic little spot. There you’ll find a rooftop oasis with long tables and a very well stocked bar. The wine list on offer at Mechanics’ is second to none, and even the most discerning wine connoisseurs are bound to have their eyes opened to a new label, drop or combination. And while the bar was planned with wine as the specialty, the very passionate staff have created a cocktail repertoire to tantalise, with a distinct selection on offer at any given time. Make the most of sunny Perth and spend a balmy evening atop 222 William. And if you get peckish, order your Flipside burger at the bar. They’ll bring it up for you. Claire.
