Since opening in 1975, Connections Nightclub has played a big role in shaping Perth's gay scene. Originally, it was an underground venue where people could pursue same-sex relationships — illegal at the time — out of view of the public. Now out and proud, this inclusive venue is known for its epic dance floor, colourful drag shows and effusive spirit. Oh, and its rooftop.
Didn't know this iconic venue had a rooftop? That's probably because you never left the dance floor (we don't blame you, it's a good one). But if you can peel yourself away from the disco balls and head upstairs, you'll find a gorgeous little brickwork terrace under the stars. The perfect spot for some fresh air and natural light, the Connections rooftop terrace offers fabulous views of Perth's skyline.
If you run dry, make your way through the terrace's French doors, where you'll find the newly opened Lounge Bar.
