Day party One Day Sundays returns to the Rosemount Hotel for a massive pre-ANZAC Day Carpark Block Party
Nick Lupi, one half of Spit Syndicate, returns to Perth this month as one of the One Day DJs billed at One Day Sundays’ extra big long weekend edition at the Rosemount Hotel.
The first instalment of the super sized party saw the Rosie’s car park transformed into a sprawling block party wonderland, with an outdoor stage, bars, food stalls, and a pop-up temporary grass lawn. Lines snaked around the corner and the party heaved all afternoon and evening.
On Sunday April 24, catch DJ sets from Adit (Horrorshow), buzz band of the moment Koi Child, Gravy, Dawes, Charlie Bucket and Lupi. Local graff legend CHEEKS will be painting the huge mural wall of the Rosemount Hotel while you sip rosé like it’s going out of fashion on the grass. And there’s a public holiday the following day to cushion the fall of your inevitable hangover. It’s a no-brainer.
Lupi is no stranger to this city, regularly touring with his various musical incarnations. So, we picked his brain for the best eating, drinking, preening, shopping and partying spots.
Mary Street Bakery
No trip to Perth is complete without stopping by our favourite cafe: Mary Street Bakery. Joyride is widely regarded as one of Australia’s top sausage roll connoisseurs and he rates MSB’s as the best in the business. 507 Beaufort St, Highgate 6003. 0499 509 300. www.marystreetbakery.com.au.
Highs and Lows
Despite having toured the country extensively for the past few years, we still occasionally (read: often) under-pack for a trip to Perth. Highs and Lows has the best collection of fly clothing in Perth so it’s often our first stop. 3/544 Beaufort St, Mount Lawley 6050. 08 9227 7133. www.highsandlows.net.au.
Any time we need to get blessed with the sharp blade in Perth, we head straight to Weston's in the city. It's owned by our boy Ta-Ku, who's been killing it as long as we can remember. 456 William St, Perth 6000. 08 9228 2692. www.westonsbarbers.com.
Uncle Billy’s Chinese Restaurant
Perth is awash with amazing Yum Cha spots, a style of cuisine the One Dayers take very, very seriously. This was a tough pick but Uncle Billy wins this one due to their late trading hours and impeccable service. Chinatown, 9/66 Roe St, Northbridge 6003. 08 9228 9388. www.uncle-billys.com.au.
The Rosemount Hotel
We’re obviously a touch biased because we’ve been throwing parties here for the past few years, but the Rosie is genuinely our favourite Perth hangout. It’s got great food and drink options, awesome live music, friendly staff and arguably the best beer garden in the country. We recommend this pub to people everywhere we go! 459 Fitzgerald St, North Perth 6006. 08 9328 7062. rosemounthotel.com.au.
