Who needs the weekend when you have a bevy of things to do on a Tuesday? Best of all, the list of things to do in Perth gives meaning to the term "cheap Tuesday". Check out our top tips for enjoying Perth on an idle Tuesday evening.
Young George is a local favourite in Freemantle that’s well known for its delicious food and cool vibes. On Tuesday nights, $15 will get you one of their delicious wood fired pizzas and an ice cold beer. With dinner going this cheap, you can definitely afford dessert! This is very good news when you peruse the menu and see options like the white chocolate and gingerbread cheesecake and the passionfruit curd and coconut ice-cream taco. Yes, please!
Head to the magical underground space that is Bobeche and make the most of their happy hour from 5-6pm. You can get one of anything – bar the cocktails – for a nifty $7, happily munching on free popcorn while you drink. Another option is happy hour at The Claremont Hotel, where you can bag $8 pints, $5 spirits, $10 cocktails and 30% off wine until 6:30pm.
In the mood to move? Tuesday nights are salsa nights at the Mustang Bar in Northbridge. Swing your hips at the free 7pm lesson and, come 8:30pm, opt to pay for a follow-up class or adjourn for dinner and drinks before hitting up the after party at 9:30pm. It’s a lot more fun than the gym.
Comedy is an excellent antidote to sub-par Tuesdays and Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den is only too happy to oblige, holding Shapiro Tuesday every week. The vibe is edgy and experimental with a mix of first-timers bravely taking the stage and seasoned professionals testing out new material. It might be glorious; it might be cringe worthy but, either way, it will definitely be entertaining. Doors open at 8pm and it’s $5 entry.
Do you know who invented the Pringles can? Or whether it’s male or female mosquitoes who bite? Test your knowledge with a night of trivia at Clancy’s Fish Pub, hosted by local favourite Lewis the Entertainer. Lewis is a funny bloke, so expect your facts with a touch of comedy alongside the venue’s great food and well-stocked bar. The questions kick off at 7:30pm and it’s always a popular night so call ahead to book a table. (For the curious, Fredric Baur invented the Pringles can - something he was obviously quite proud of, given he had his own ashes buried in one...and it’s female mosquitoes who are the cause of red spots and itchy bits: their male counterparts eat only flower nectar.)
Are you a bona fide city slicker, or do you prefer to nestle in the comfort of quiet? No matter your taste, Perth's hotel offering is on par with the eclectic things to do on a Tuesday evening. Keep in theme by making the most of Travelodge Tuesdays, which gives guests up to 20% in savings during any stay, on any day (conditions may apply). This includes a 2 for 1 breakfast and is available when booking any Travelodge hotel on a Tuesday. This is the perfect deal to use for Travelodge Hotel Perth, which offers classic convenience in prime location. Get amongst the action with a city centre stay, opting for the privacy of your own space at Adina Apartment Hotel Perth or the modern comfort of Rendezvous Hotel Perth Central. Those wanting to be near the eclectic shopping and dining options of trendy inner-city suburb Mt Lawley are better served at Adina Apartment Hotel Perth Barrack Plaza, whilst those looking for beachside bliss should retreat to the sunny shores of Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough.
