Whether or not you’re a current resident, or perhaps planning a future in Subiaco, there is a noticeable draw of lifestyle benefits and opportunities that are contributing to an exciting phase of growth for Perth’s beloved inner-city suburb.

Future residents at Halcyon Apartments Subiaco will benefit from a growing variety of amenities and opportunities in the local area, presenting a lifestyle of sophistication, convenience and leisure – and we take a look at some of these local gems below.

Fine Dining Without Leaving Your Neighbourhood

Subiaco has long been known for its exclusive array of fine dining restaurants and eateries, helping to firmly establish it as a “foodie’s paradise”.

If you enjoy an evening out with sensational food and unsurpassed service, set within a lively yet ambient atmosphere, there are a variety of local options right on your doorstep so you can leave the keys at home. One of the benefits of living 5-minutes’ walk away from the beating heart of Rokeby Road’s café, retail and shopping strip!

You only need to visit the Streets Of Subiaco website to see just how many dining options are available. One of the local favourites is Lulu La Delizia which specialises in hand cooked pasta inspired by Friuli and Venetian influences. It was also named WA’s top restaurant in the Australian Financial Review Top Restaurants Awards!

If you fancy French cuisine, there is no going past Petite Morte which is known for exquisite French cuisine, traditionally cooked with a modern twist for the most discerning of palettes. Looking for something more simple? There are also an endless supply of casual dining establishments lining the streets, including the recently opened Dilly Dally on Rokeby Road (formerly the Witches Cauldron) which serves Italian-inspired food in a modern, relaxed and cosy atmosphere.

A Boutique Retail Experience

Being located just a 6-minute walk to major retailers and specialty shops, future Halycon Subiaco residents will be spoilt for choice when it comes to doing a bit of retail therapy in the local area.

High-end retailers like Amia Clothing on Rokeby Road provide a boutique experience for women’s clothing and accessories, whilst Devlin’s is a local favourite for gentleman seeking luxury glassware for their whiskey collection, or perhaps a premier Cuban cigar from their treasured cigar room.

If you’re a foodie and cheese lover, a visit to Simon Johnson gourmet deli and fromagerie is an absolute must. Sample over 100 international cheeses from their on-site cheese room, including the popular favourite Occelli in foglie di Castagno from Italy which is made from cows milk, topped with either sheep or goats milk, and then wrapped in chestnut leaves to create an aged flavour to send any cheese lover into a world of bliss.

Relaxing In Subiaco’s Hippest Bars

A quick visit to this link on the City Of Subiaco’s website will uncover the initial history of Subiaco’s naming back in 1851, where a group of Italian Benedictine monks settled in the local area, planting olive trees and fruit orchards in honour of their local order in Subiaco, Italy. So, it’s no wonder that Subiaco provides a flurry of options to wine and dine – after all, it’s ingrained in the suburb’s history!

New bars are also popping up all of the time, like Subiaco’s newest bar, Old Values, which opened up in July 2020. It sports a rustic lounge theme with vintage bikes hanging from the ceiling, a historic organ at the entrance and even has an old fire truck for its DJ booth. If you prefer something more intimate, there are options like Bark, crowned the title of Subiaco’s smallest bar. Love a good mid-week deal? Head down to The Boardroom for their $2 oyster Thursday special – shucked fresh to order and affordably priced!

The local Cellarbrations Subiaco also provides regular tastings on Friday nights co-hosted with local winemakers, brewers and distillers in their exclusive Ceilidh Tasting Room, which, when translated from Gaelic (Irish) is, in fact, the word for “celebration”.

Getting Your Culture On

Subiaco boasts an interconnected community with a range of cultural activities and events for lovers of the arts. With The Regal Theatre just a 5-minute walk from your front door, you’ll have the pick of a host of local and international shows frequenting the area to provide you with the perfect night’s entertainment. The Subiaco Cinemas are also within a 5-minute walk, or if you want to take in a show at the Perth Arena, it’s either a 9-minute drive or a 6-minute train ride into Perth station.

If you’re into something a little more hands-on, why not try the Evenings of Life Drawing at The Corner Gallery where you can take part in life drawing sessions, in intimate gatherings of no more than 30 people as a mid-week outing.

Theatre lovers also have the option of a quick trip down the road to the Subiaco Arts Centre where you’ll have access to a host of shows from the Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company, Perth’s premier indigenous arts theatre group. Get tickets to one of their awe-inspiring shows or attend one of their Writer’s Group sessions where stories of culture, history and legacy are shared with the community with some of Perth’s premier artistic geniuses.

Peaceful Strolls Within Stunning Local Surrounds

Subiaco is known as one of Perth’s leafiest suburbs with lush surrounds providing the perfect location for a leisurely weekend stroll. Stepping out of your boutique apartment, Subiaco Common is just a 4-minute walk away, and the local Market Square is also a popular hangout spot for a picnic, or even to take in some reading in one of their gazebos.

Venturing outside of the suburb, Lake Monger and Kings Park are just 5 minutes away by car, with additional options like Herdsman Lake a 7-minute drive away, or City Beach just 11-minutes’ drive from your front door.

If you’re after lifestyle, Subiaco really is a perfectly placed suburb.
