The Left Bank building is an iconic Fremantle treasure that has stood proud on the Swan River since 1889. In business for more than 25 years, the venue has stolen hearts with its ornate architectural features, welcoming staff, laid-back ambience and great food and drink offerings.
For these reasons, the venue has become one of Perth’s most exclusive Sunday session spots, and a favourite for special events and celebrations, like Perth’s biggest Christmas Eve party, attracting national headline acts. Its staff’s mission is to create a memorable event for guests, and provide great value for money for cocktail, private and corporate-style functions.
With four different areas to choose from, The Left Bank caters for groups from 10 up to 200 guests. The upstairs River Bar is the newest addition to the venue – its surrounding balcony offers the best view over the Swan River and is the perfect location for romantic yet casual weddings, engagement parties or any large celebration.
The Mezzanine is by far one of the best outdoor function spaces in Perth – perfect for a summer party, it overlooks the newly refurnished Beer Garden and offers a great view of the beautiful WA sunsets.
Billy’s Lounge and Verandah is a combination of a cosy indoor area and front verandah. The Conservatory Deck is great for small cocktail parties that require a sense of seclusion yet still enjoy the atmosphere of the Beer Garden and Bar.
