One of Perth’s latest hot spots, the Greenhouse, offers city punters the chance to experience a little bit of greenery along with their drinks. Designer Joost Bakker, is the brains behind the Greenhouse phenomenon which is also based in Melbourne, and temporarily in Sydney. Seeking to establish an environmentally friendly restaurant and bar, using sustainable and recycled materials, the Greenhouse idea was born. Perch on a crate on the rooftop bar and be satisfied to know that the clever approach to their design process means you are involved in reducing the ecological footprint by choosing to dine here. Enjoy being surrounded by hundreds of potted ivy plants which make up the walls of this establishment. Chefs are often seen wandering upstairs to handpick freshly grown herbs from their own garden, nourished by their worm farm.

The dining space downstairs has a deliciously mouth watering menu on offer, complemented by a carefully selected beer and wine list. Team lunch with a glass of refreshing homemade lemonade, or a local white. Take some friends along and try out the slow cooked lamb shoulder for dinner. But it’s not just the food here that is impressive, it’s their attention to detail and presentation of each dish. Salad leaves come in small jars; the mixed tomato salad with artichokes for lunch comes smashed over a wooden tray drizzled with olive oil. Either way prepare to be delighted whether you come here for coffee or a more substantial meal. Enjoy!
