Later, let the smoky, spicy aromatics lure you towards an early dinner at Miss Mi. Located on the ground floor of the hotel, Miss Mi will take you on a journey that pays homage to the traditional art of the Asian grill and all its charred, caramelised, smoked and scorched goodness. Time-honoured techniques, spices and aromatics are paired with local produce to connect Perth diners with the vibrant food culture of Asia. Start with elevated street snacks and other house-made curiosities before indulging in share-style heroes.

After dinner, retreat to the comfort of your room or hit the streets of Perth for an event. Novotel Perth Murray Street is located within walking distance of everything you need for a memorable night out - RAC Arena, Elizabeth Quay, and the bustling nightlife of Northbridge and Perth CBD.

This winter, Perth will host a range of special evening events and Novotel Perth Murray Street is the perfect base to attend.
