NEW BARS FOR FREO’S OLD SYNAGOGUE

 

 

 

 

New plans for the former Fremantle synagogue on the corner of South Terrace and Parry Street near Fremantle Oval have come to light, but still depend on Fremantle Council planning approval and a liquor license.

The Old Synagogue would offer a beer garden on three levels, with a rooftop bar, while the restaurant would offer fine dining with an Asian twist to it.

The basement bar of The Old Synagogue will be offering cocktails in a more relaxed and intimate setting, while the street-level bar would embrace the Freo vibes and offer craft beer and pub food.

The City of Fremantle is currently in the process to develop Fremantle Oval with a residential and commercial part and the relocation of the East Fremantle Football Club to the oval, so the new venue, opposite the Norfolk Hotel might well become an additional attraction for the precinct.

Already plans have been approved for a small boutique hotel and tavern at the Warders Cottages directly east of the Fremantle Markets, and another hotel, tavern and entertainment centre by Silverleaf Investments has been approved for the former police and justice complex and Warders Cottages also in Henderson Street. Just east of that development the former Drillhall has been turned into The Social Club live music venue by Sunset Events, that will open in March this year.

There is a lot going on in Fremantle, and that is a good thing, but I am a bit worried that there is too much concentration on making it into an alcohol-related entertainment centre.

MARKET AND MUSIC FREO SUNDAY FUN

 

gg-11

 

It is sooooo much nicer to go food shopping at the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market than going to a sterile shopping centre, and the last one of the year is on this Sunday December 23 from 8am till midday.

So get on your airconditioned bikes or in your hot cars and head to Fremantle College on Lefroy Road for all that fresh produce and yummy breakfast offers.

And from 2-4pm sit in the shade of the plane trees in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre for the free concert by The Last Fair Deal with powerhouse lead singer Ofa Fotu and listen to the great blues and soul.

Get ready for the great Lucky By the Ocean concert series, featuring Lucky Oceans and friends, at Fremantle’s Kidogo Arthouse on Bathers Beach, 10 Wednesdays and 2 Sundays  from November to January

Lucky Oceans is a name synonymous with music in Western Australia. One of the most influential steel guitarists of his generation he has played with big names in Australian music across jazz, folk, blues and country and the much-loved Zydecats in Fremantle.

He brings his special brand of musical magic to Kidogo Arthouse, on the shore of the Indian Ocean, on Wednesday evenings and two Sundays from November to early January.

Wednesday Nov 14 – Rose Parker – Immerse yourself in the compelling songs and stories of leading singer songwriter Rose.

Wednesday Nov 21 – David Hyams with the Miles to Go Trio – acclaimed producer plays his own Irish-inflected pieces with Stuart Paterson, Manoli Vouyoucalos and Dan Bright on guitar and dij.

Wednesday Nov 28 – Gemma Turvey – Pianist/composer Bundanon Trust Artist in Residence brings her pervasively expressive jazz/classical Palm Court sounds to the Sea, with cello and Lucky.

Wednesday December 5 – Fiona Rea Music EP launch with Bryan R Dalton supporting and with Lucky Oceans, Tristen Parr and Jon Edwards playing with the marvellous Fiona.

Sunday December 9 – Jeff Lang and Lucky Oceans – When Lucky heard that local luthier Ross Coole was making a guitar for Jeff, he cooked up an idea to have Jeff come over here and pick it up.  Jeff is one of the world’s greatest guitarists but is also a fine singer and songwriter.

Wednesday December 12 – Barrelhouse Juke Joint Blues from Jessie James Gordon, Paul Gioia, Bill Lawrie and Lucky bringing you more blue songs of joy from the Dirty Thirties.

Wednesday December 19 – After a long hiatus, this will be only the second performance this year by the Dave Brewer Lucky Oceans Quartet with Karl Florisson and Ric Eastman with some new material written especially for the occasion.

Sunday December 30 – Not a Wednesday! But we had to fit a Hawaiian Sundowner in, especially because Mr. Aloha -Sam Lemann – is in town. As an alternative to a try hard NYE, join Howie Morgan, Alistair Peel, Lucy Lemann, Lucky and the setting sun to celebrate the timeless kitsch of the Islands.

Wednesday Jan 2 – We’re working Sam Lemann hard and getting him together with his boyhood partner in crime Adam Gare and Lucky Oceans to recreate the swinging sounds of the Nansing Quartet minus the annoying name.

URBAN INFILL DEMANDS NOISE PROTECTION MEASURES

 

One of only two agenda items for the Strategic Planning and Transport Committee on Wednesday will be the community consultation paper put out by the WA Planning Commission-WAPC about noise in entertainment areas such as Northbridge, and the question if Fremantle Council should consider asking the WAPC to include the Fremantle CBD in the trial.

Medium and high density urban infill has seen a rise in complaints in recent years from residents who are not happy with the noise from entertainment venues and transport, but the entertainment industry believes it is not fair that the onus should only be on them and that it should be shared with developers of new residential buildings, which should be required to put better noise insulation measures, such as double glazing and thicker glass in their developments.

I remember many years ago that when the new apartments opposite Clancy’s were built that it only took one week before the first complaint was made about live music there, although the tavern had been having regular live concerts for many many years.

In Fremantle where we are going to see a glut of new residential apartments and hotel rooms, combined with new taverns and bars, it is essential to also protect the livelihood of the hospitality industry and demand new buildings that have better noise protection for their users.
