Petition Wine Bar & Merchant is an intimate and relaxed corner of the sprawling State Buildings hospitality complex.

It is small and cosy and a real-deal wine store with an impressive range. Tables are scattered throughout the store so one can dine intimately between the wine stacks. The food comes from Petition Kitchen, the hugely popular modern bistro at the State Buildings.

The curated wine menu is by wine boss Emma Farrelly and boasts organic, Australian and Mediterranean wines, along with spirits, cocktails and beers. There’s a good selection of by-the-glass titles. Petition Wine Bar is one of Perth’s most civilised and welcoming small bars.
