Backstreet entrance, check. Dim lighting to set the mood, check. Amazing bar staff, check. Great music, check. Comfortable couches, check. Kebab shop adjacent, check. Amplifier has got to be the only bar in Perth that hits all the right spots. With it's laid back attitude, the regulars might ask you to check your pomposity or jackassery at the door.
With a outdoor area to chill in and an inside dance floor with the coolest tunes, there is no place like Amplifier. On Friday nights, the coolest bands in Perth will gig it up and rock out. Place yourself at the back of the room, with a pint of Bulmers and watch the best young talent Perth has to offer.
After midnight, the door between Amplifier and Capitol opens so, you get two nights for the price of one. If the indie vibe and laid-back music is getting you down, check out the turbo/dub-step feel of Capitol. Also, take a journey upstairs if you want to dance to old-school music in a sweaty room of youth, if you dare....
