GREAT NEW SYNAGOGUE VENUE FOR FREMANTLE

Posted in bar, cafe, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, tavern, Uncategorized by freoview on December 2, 2019

 

 

The official opening of the Fremantle Old Synagogue tavern, bar, restaurant and cafe is this coming weekend, but they did a soft opening yesterday, and I noticed when I walked by that they are also open today.

Here some more photos I took yesterday. What a great new venue, and so nice to see that important corner of Freo being activated.

DELIGHTFUL FREO LONG TABLE

The FREO LONG TABLE is my favourite event in Fremantle because it is everything Fremantle is. It is fun, food, wine, entertainment and charity. It is an evening where the Fremantle community comes together to have fun to support those who need a helping hand.

Proceeds for the heart-warming event go to St Patrick’s, so thank you so much to all the volunteers, businesses, sponsors, chefs and cooks and volunteers, and performers, and, and, and. You all make Freo the very special caring place it is!

BIG FREMANTLE PARK COMMUNITY CLUBHOUSE

Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, community, hospitality, local government, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on November 26, 2019

 

 

I was given a preview of the new Fremantle Park sport and community clubhouse this morning, which is under construction and will open in the first quarter of next year.

The $ 4.7 million development will house the Fremantle tennis, bowling and workers clubs, who will be sharing the space, and the building will also be made available to community groups.

The ground-level bowling and tennis club premises are quite modest in comparison to the upstairs space of the Fremantle Workers&Social club. The huge timber dance floor is rather ostentatious and designed with a lot of optimism. It can accommodate at least a hundred dancers. Time will tell if this is over the top and if the clubs will really be able to generate enough interest from the general public to make it all financially viable.

STUNNING FREMANTLE SYNAGOGUE TAVERN

I got a sneak preview of the Old Synagogue tavern development today, and I already know this is going to be my local and favourite watering hole in Fremantle.

It is a fantastic development that has got so many gorgeous features. I specifically like all the greenery; trees, planter boxes, lawn.

The Old Synagogue is next to Fremantle Oval and opposite the Norfolk Hotel. It has three levels and will have two rooftop bars, one of them looking straight down the Cappuccino Strip.

There will be a cosy whiskey bar, a great restaurant, many, many craft beers, a changing wine list featuring WA wines and the favourite wines of the moment.

And the good news is that it will open at the end of this month, so in time for all the office Christmas parties and functions. Book now!

FREE-O CHRISTMAS PARKING

Posted in cars, city of fremantle, hospitality, local government, parking, retail, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on November 15, 2019

 

People shopping in Fremantle will be getting free parking from December 2 to Boxing Day at 27 carparks in the CBD.

Motorists will be able to park for free for up to two hours from Monday to Thursday between 9am and 4pm in one of the 2,300 bays.

Fremantle Council is trying to do everything to convince people to shop locally in our port city.

I do support the free parking but question why it is for two hours only and not for a three-hour period, so that shoppers have time to shop more leisurely and have enough time also to enjoy lunch and breakfast.

We are in for a very hot weekend so the Fremantle Beer Fest on the Esplanade will no doubt be the favourite location for many people to down a few coldies.

It’s a year of firsts for the summer festival as Fremantle BeerFest introduces the Paddle Bar that will host a collection of 40 project craft beers and ciders. Showcasing the creativity and skill-set of our brewers in producing a variety of quirky, strange and interesting festival brews brewed exclusively for Freo BeerFest!

BeerFest will take festival-goers on a journey of beer and food discovery; exploring rare brews, beer/food pairing and exclusive festival brews, ciders, cocktails and boutique spirits from around the Country, direct from the brewers themselves.

It’s the biggest and most anticipated BeerFest season yet. Australia’s longest running, original beer festival returns this summer with seven festivals taking place across Australia.  

Over 300 unique, exotic and small batch craft beers, ciders, cocktails and wines, hand crafted and perfectly complemented by the most decadent local street eats.

BeerFest continues to deliver a huge line-up of live entertainment with Australian electronic dance group Art vs Science headlining.

The Little Market Street Piazza behind Gino’s in Fremantle has a real European feel about it now that the SOMA cafe and restaurant has moved further out with nice big planter boxes.

THE REPUBLIC OF FREMANTLE

That bloody lefty greeny Fremantle Council is at it again! First they ban Australia Day, then plastic bags and balloons, and now to top it all they are banning the Queen of England and are working toward becoming the Republic of Fremantle, as this banner at the Fremantle traffic bridge this morning shows.

Don’t despair yet! It is a promo for the new Republic of Fremantle gin distillery and micro brewery that will open in Pakenham Street very soon. ; >)
