Epic rooftop venue among three new event spaces for Perth

Perth is set to welcome three new event spaces including a new rooftop venue at the Art Gallery of WA.

Due to open in early 2021, Elevate will create the largest, commercially-available rooftop venue in Perth, accommodating up to 500 people.

The new rooftop will feature an open-air sculpture walk, featuring works from the State Art Collection; a new internal gallery space for exhibitions and events; and two outdoor multi-purpose spaces with views of the city, Perth Hills and WA Museum.

The project will also feature an external lift and sky bridge from the Perth Cultural Centre precinct allowing visitors access to the rooftop when the gallery is closed.

Perth craft brewer Gage Roads Brewing has announced plans to transform Fremantle Harbour’s historic Victoria Quay A Shed into a new brewery.

Due to open late-2021, the venue will comprise a microbrewery, restaurant and bar, and an al fresco seating overlooking the strip of ocean between Fremantle and Rottnest Island.

Construction has also begun on Pirate Life Perth, a 1000-pax, multi-level venue on Murray Street in the city’s CBD. The venue is lasted to open this summer.

“Pirate Life Perth will be the biggest singular hospitality development the Perth CBD has seen in a long time – it will be unlike anything this city has ever seen,” said CEO Andy Freeman.

“Perth is ready for a brewery focused on quality brews and great food set in a world-class designed venue the heart of our city.”
