Claremont Quarter – just look at the unsteady Louboutin-wobbling and dinged-up Benzs in the car park. You are in good company here! Plus who doesn’t like feeling like a 1% elite while getting your buzz on during the day.
Fill up your favourite designer water bottle with some voddie soda and get a taste of how the other side day-drink. Don’t worry about trying to fit in incognito, they’ll detect that you’re a blow-in anyway. So just lean into it. Read more about the Quarter HERE.
The train – one of the biggest problems you’ll face as a keen day-drinker is transportation. So why not combine the destination with the transportation and suck back a few cheekies on the train?
Of course, the convenience of the train is offset by a few factors – judgmental stares, PTA officers, and surveillance but just consider yourself the Jason Bourne of midday froffs and evade capture like a pro. Read more about train etiquette HERE.
St Georges Terrace – there will always be a little voice in the back of your head saying, “maybe slurring my words by 2 pm is unwise”, maybe that voice is right. However, on the Terrace it’s not “day-drinking” it’s “networking”.
Yep, you read that right. A counterproductive activity is a productive career-boosting act of bonding if you’re wearing a suit. You’ve got to love that. Read more about long lunches HERE.
Golf course – it’s physical activity so you automatically get a pass. Sure, you’re in a golf cart and sucking back a beer every hole but it still counts as exercise. The loosest definition of exercise of all time.
Now, day-drinking and golf go hand in hand because you’ll need to take that edge off. Remember, just the edge though. If you overdo it you might send your putter 6 inches deep into the green and get manhandled by an aggrieved greensman. Read more about getting blitzed on the golf course HERE.
Mandurah – this is one of WA’s premier day-drinking spots. Not only is it on a train line but you have options galore! Foreshore for some el naturale coldies, the canals for some retiree-inspired wine quaffing, or the Forum car park for an authentic feel.
If you’re going to do it at the Forum, make sure you add your own flattened can of Wild Boar to the collection on the ground. When in Rome, after all. Read more about Mandurah HERE.
