kulcha

 

There is an application for a liquor license on the former Kulcha building on Fremantle’s Cappuccino Strip, so it looks like the new lessees will soon start with their restaurant and live music venue above the Dome cafe in the gorgeous building.

The  new Fremantle Cappuccino Strip carpark on the former Stan Reilly site is near completion with solar lighting now also installed.

It will be good that it opens as the Queensgate carpark will close after the long Easter weekend to accommodate the Kings Square Redevelopment Project.

The new Cappuccino Strip carpark on the former Stan Reilly site near Fremantle Hospital and Fremantle Oval is scheduled to open early April.

Bitumen made of recycled road milling is being put down at present. It will capture rain water run off that will be used to water the water-wise plants.

There will be 156 car bays which will be lit at night by solar lighting, and there are also electric car charging bays.

This old lady quietly knitting in the hustle and bustle of the Freo Cappuccino Strip today created a little oasis. She was selling little baby shoes and other things.

BRIGHTER FREO CAPPUCCINO STRIP

Posted in cappuccino strip, city of fremantle, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on January 3, 2018

 

Cap Strip lights

 

The Fremantle Cappuccino Strip is brighter in the evenings after the installation of new LED street lights.

The City of Fremantle has removed 36 old-fashioned light fittings, using 150 watt metal halide globes, and replaced them with new 40 watt LED fittings.

The new lights will not only shine brighter but also use significantly less power and result in substantial savings on maintenance.

The new LED lights will see energy consumption from the street lights on the strip drop from almost 24,000kwh per year to around 6000kwh, a reduction of around 75 per cent.

The lights also have a lifespan many times longer than metal halide globes, and it will be a few years before they’ll need maintenance. That represents a big saving for the City in labour, parts and equipment.

FREMANTLE KULCHA SPACE FOR LEASE

The former KULCHA art and music venue on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip is up for lease.

The venue upstairs from the Dome cafe has received an all new universal access at the back with lift, so it is finally accessible to disabled people and seniors in gophers, etc.

 

SUMMER IS COMING!

summer

 

I like it hot, so can’t wait for summer, and the season of markets, festivals and events to start in Fremantle.

Took this photo on my way to the Council meeting late yesterday afternoon at the Cappuccino Strip near the very cosy Benny’s bar and cafe.

STUNNG FREO SUN-DAY

What a stunningly beautiful Sunday in Fremantle today!

No need to take my word for it though, but the thousands of people came to Freo for a stroll, meal or coffee, show that I am right.

It is such a delight to see more people in town, and to know that this is going to assist our traders.

It is good to know that in the near future all the development that is happening in the inner city will see more people living and working in the CBD. A couple of hotels are also in the pipeline, so the hundreds of thousands of visitors will be able to stay in our port city overnight.

It’s all good and I am very optimistic about Freo’s future!

NEW STAIRS TO KULCHA BUILDING

Posted in city of fremantle, heritage, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on July 28, 2017

 

 

The new public access stairs to the former Kulcha venue above the Dome cafe on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip are rather massive, but I understand it will include a lift for disabled access as well and that is a good thing.

The venue will become a restaurant and music venue again, so that might still happen this year.

NEW FREMANTLE BAR HAS BALLS

Posted in bar, food, fremantle, hospitality by freoview on March 8, 2017

 

A new bar is opening on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip next to the Dome Cafe.

It’s a cocktail bar that has got balls, if the name is an indication.

Welcome to The Meatball and Cocktail Bar!
