Strange Company

 

Strange Company is a gorgeous very Freo bar and one of my favourites, because it just has the right cosy feeling for me.  On Sunday August 25 it will be celebrating it’s fourth birthday and that will be a lot of fun from noon to midnight.

Festivities are happening all day long, with the much loved pop-up wood-fired pizza oven and alfresco bar kicking things off early from 12 midday

Live music will be flowing from 2.30pm all-the-way through till midnight including Justin Walshe Folk Machine, the Dave Brewer Band Deluxe Combo and a series of resident Strange DJ’s

There will also be plenty of free fun and games fit for the whole family, as the team behind the bar bring you a Sunday session in true ‘Carnie-Style’ including a photo booth, vintage circus staff and a popcorn machine for young and old to enjoy.

Strange Company is at 5 Nairn Street, Fremantle.

The weekend is coming up and I don’t want to leave the week on a negative note, so here a photo I took early this week of people having a quiet one at the Fremantle Esplanade Hotel bar.

It’s going to be a lovely weekend, so enjoy our great little city!

BEACH STREET KIOSK TAVERN

Posted in alcohol, city of fremantle, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on July 10, 2017

 

The owners of the KIOSK at Fremantle Beach Street, opposite the East Street Jetty, can thank their good luck that Fremantle Council did not sign off on handing over the former DADAA building next door to become the new location for the Aboriginal Cultural Centre.

I doubt that under those circumstances the City of Fremantle would have agreed to change the popular cafe from cafe to tavern, as they requested, and will be debated at the FPOL Committee this Wednesday.

The KIOSK wants to expand their business and have applied for a variation in license from 240 sqm to approximately 418 sqm, and they want to apply for a tavern liquor license to accommodate small functions and groups that is up to now restricted to table service.

The City of Fremantle is at present liaising with Aboriginal elders and groups to find out what they want to achieve with a cultural centre and then find an appropriate building in Freo for our Noongar friends.

All you musos out there who want to get into a good jam session with other Freo musicians should join the great jam at Clancy’s on Friday nights from 5.30-7.30. Headed by another musical genius of the Fisher family, the loveable Tom Fisher, this is a really fun creative session of exploring, sharing, and banging out some groovy tunes.

It’s free for all and the kitchen serves great food and the bar is of course open for a nice drink.

It’s perfect entertainment and engagement on a winter’s night and to meet and network with other musical talent in Freo.

NEW ROOF TOP BAR FOR EAST FREMANTLE

Posted in bar, fremantle, hospitality by freoview on April 16, 2016

Get ready for an exciting new bar with great views in East Fremantle, just a stone’s throw from the Fremantle CBD.

In July the Sweetwater Rooftop Bar will open on the sixth floor of the new Richmond Quarters at Canning Highway, near the East Fremantle Townhall.

There will also be a small restaurant, so it will be a great addition to the Freo bar scene.

ZYDECATS AT FREMANTLE WORKERS CLUB

Posted in fremantle, music by freoview on March 12, 2016

Zydecats

 

The great and energetic ZYDECATS, who played the Sunday session at Clnacys for 16 years, will be invigorating the crowd at the Fremantle Workers Club at Fremantle Oval this Sunday March 13 from 6-9 pm and also on April 10.

Tickets are $ 5.oo for members and only $ 1o.00 for visitors, so it’s a bargain to hear such a great band.

There will be Venezuelan food on offer and the bar at the South Fremantle Football Club will of course be open.

DUTCH CLUB MOVES CLOSE TO FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, hospitality by freoview on February 23, 2016

Good news for Freo’s Dutchies! The Dutch club Neerlandia has closed in Cambridge Street, Wembley and are now sharing the premises of the German Rhein Donau Club in Myaree. To stay with the two-river name the Dutchies have changed the name to Maas en Waal.

On Friday it will be borrel avond for the Dutchies from 5.30 to 9 pm at 110 North Lake Road, Myaree and the kitchen will offer all the Dutch goodies, as well as German food.

Salted Board

 

A very nice-looking new cafe/bar has opened on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip. Salted Board looks lovely opposite The Monk so try it out and support a new local business. I will check it out later this week.
