Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 29, 2020

The weather forecast for Monday is not great, but I wanted to let you know anyway that the season has started for the popular Under The Bridge Food Trucks at the East Street jetty at Freo’s Beach Street.

It’s on every Monday from 5-8pm, so go have a look.

FLOWERING JACARANDAS FOR FREO’S LONG TABLE DINNER

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 28, 2020

Flowering Jacarandas will welcome the people to tonight’s Fremantle Long Table Dinner, the charity event to raise funds for homeless people through St Patrick’s.

The long tables look good and will probably get better protection from a strong sea breeze, so enjoy!

There is also a Christmas Market at Kings Square from 4-9pm.

FANTASTIC FREO WEEKEND AHEAD!

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 27, 2020

It’s going to be a great weekend in Fremantle with a lot to do for everyone!

Little Creatures is celebrating 20 years in the Fishing Boat Harbour with activities for young and old. I remember the site was a crocodile farm when I arrived in WA.

The DesignFreo exhibitions opens tonight at the Fremantle Arts Centre, so go and have a look on the weekend.

The Fremantle Long Table Dinner is always a great event and the Christmas Markets at Kings Square will be on from 4-9pm on Saturday and there is roving entertainment, so come along.

The Fremantle Markets is of course open all weekend and the Freo Farmers Market on Sunday from 8am till midday.

On Saturday the Silver Street Collective in South Fremantle sees creatives opening their courtyards to the public and on Sunday the Mental Health Mate BBQ is on from 10.30 at South Beach.

But there is more! The Fremantle Arts Centre free Sunday courtyard music is on from 2-4pm with Sam Carmody and The Money War.

And all our unique shops, bars, cafes and taverns are open. When there is so much on we need to be well hydrated and fed! Well, that’s going to be my excuse anyway. ; >))

FREO FOMO ALL THE GO GO!

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 27, 2020

More good news for Fremantle!

While there is no sign of activity yet I can assure all those who are worried that the FOMO hospitality and retail hub at Kings Square might not eventuate, that the space is now fully leased and it will open in April next year. Some of the traders might even open earlier than that.

Sirona Capital will make an announcement next year about the unique specialty food and beverage, art, entertainment, apparel, groceries, etc. tenants, so stay tuned.

We already know that the Varsity sports bar and an IGA supermarket are part of the mix.

THE GRASS IS GREENER AT PICCOLO

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 25, 2020

Nice to see something different in Fremantle’s alfresco dining. The Piccolo cafe opposite the Orient Hotel in High Street has put ‘grass’ and planter boxes and comfy chairs on the pavement.

Many of Freo’s alfresco areas are boring and parklets often are more about design than comfort and ambiance. This is a nice and good-looking change from the norm.

OLD SYNAGOGUE WA’S BEST NEW VENUE

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 19, 2020

The Old Synagogue hospitality venue on the corner of Fremantle’s South Terrace and Parry Street has received well-deserved acclaim with being voted the ‘Best New Venue‘ at this year’s annual Australian Hotels Association WA awards.

The Old Synagogue also shared the first place as the best venue in WA with the Royal Hotel in Perth.

I have only heard good feedback about the food at the Old Synagogue and on the few occasions I visited with friends I found the service very friendly, professional and relaxed.

Well done to the owners and the entire team. Well done!

FRENCH CAFE FOR FREO

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on November 17, 2020

The former Notre Dame University student shop on the corner of Henry Street and Marine Terrace is finally leased, after it had been vacant for years and it will become a cafe. Not another cafe, I hear some say, but The Bistrot cafe will be different because it will be licensed and the ladies can have a glass of bubblies with breakfast.

It is still a work in progress and the lady I talked with yesterday told me they will open The Bistrot cafe in mid January, so stay tuned and I’ll let you know when that happens.

Good news, Freo! The South Beach Sunset Market is on this summer and will start on Saturday December 5 from 5-9pm.

It will be on every Saturday in summer, weather permitting, so go and support all those small businesses that have struggled very much this year.
