Arabian nights just got hotter with Andy Freeman’s Hadiqa, in Perth’s historic east end. It’s a Moroccan-inspired space with a couple of bars and a dining area overlooking the loveliest of public squares, Hibernian Place.

Slide in for a drink and a snack or settle in for a meal. Couples love the intimate bar at the back. Flying solo? Grab a stool along the window ledge and order a kebab. Service is spot on and the drinks list is seriously good, with some of Perth’s best drinks-slingers building mixed drinks with an Arabian twist.

Cocktails are themed to get you in the mood. If you’re feeling a little souk-y, Turkish Delight martini or Café de Fes are our recommendations. North African and Levantine-inspired snacks dominate the menu, with smoky chargrilled meats, salads and tajines. Share plates are the way to go. Start with authentic house-made dips and a basket of Hadiqa’s breads.
