THE OLD SYNAGOGUE
Perth’s hottest new bar and restaurant precinct, The Old Synagogue opened on South Terrace in Fremantle mid-December and has been packed ever since.
‘Located at the corner of South Terrace and Parry Street, Fremantle, The Old Synagogue was built in 1902 making it Western Australia’s first synagogue.
Known at the time as the Fremantle Synagogue, services continued until 1910, after which it was closed permanently with a majority of the Jewish population moving to Perth.
Today, The Old Synagogue is home to four unique hospitality venues, on a state heritage listed site engrained in Fremantle’s history.’
I captured the opening week – because when you are so awesome you need more than one night to fit in all your VIP’s – and were wowed at every turn.
