A few months ago to celebrate our 30th birthdays my friends and I went to Crown Perth in Burswood for a night out.
We arrived and easily found parking in the multi-story car park. It cost $20 for the evening or there is free parking located near the train station where you can walk over. The weather was not the best so we went for the under cover option.
Our first stop was the Lobby Lounge where the bar tender expertly whipped up wine and cocktails for us.
We then had our dinner reservation at Bistro Guillame which is a very fancy french restaurant. Our seat was a semi-circle lounge which was nice and comfy. We ordered some more drinks and were served some delicious bread while we looked over the menu. It is a rather small menu but everything looked like it would be delicious. Two of us went for the sirloin and my other friend got the crab linguini. We all thought our meals were amazing and very filling.
After our meal we walked around the complex and took in how stunning the buildings are. There are huge marble walkways and stunning plant arrangements near the Crown Towers entrance. It is the kind of building that would definitely fit in in Las Vegas. The outdoor pool looked amazing too but it was too cold and windy to try going outside to have a look. I imagine it would be lovely on a warm summers night.
We then walked back to the main floor of the casino and stopped in at Cotta for hot chocolates and cake. By this point it was after 10 pm but the place was packed! I got a mocha mud cake which was delicious as a birthday treat but very chocolately.
Following our sweets we had a look around the betting floor and one of my friends had some good luck on the roulette wheel! After deciding to quit while we were ahead we walked back to the lobby area. There are plenty of nice couches to sit on and chat but we were a little disappointed that most of the other bars seemed to be shutting down. There is a champagne bar that looks very fancy but it was closing its doors for the night. The nightclub that used to be inside the casino had recently shut down too so the only real options for a bit of dancing is within the main casino floor.
Getting close to midnight the casino itself was still very busy so you could easily find things to do but we decided to call it a night and get home into our pjs.
Where do you like to go for a fancy night out?
