It’s fair to say that The Old Synagogue in Fremantle has quickly become one of Freo’s most popular eating and watering holes, all-the-while winning multiple awards in the process.

And now that same team is ready to reveal their second multi-venue hospitality project – The Beaufort – slinging it’s many doors open this March.


The $10 million project spans three levels and multiple venues within one, inspired by the works of MC Esher (the crazy stairs guy) – news that will come as no surprise to anyone whose lost themselves within the various spaces of The ‘Gog.

After purchasing the land at 521-525 Beaufort Street, the Nokturnl crew immediately set about creating an start-of-the-art inner city pub, a funhouse for big kids with plenty of exploring to do.

There’s the rooftop terrace known as Candy Bar, a central-tired jungle dancefloor downstairs and and outdoor beer and wine garden overlooking Beaufort Street.

“It’s our second venue but the first time we have had a blank canvas and a lot of space to create a completely purpose-built hospitality venue. We can’t really think of anything quite like this in Perth,” said Nokturnl’s Ross Drennan.

Same as The Old Synagogue, The Beaufort will have its own speakeasy called Cypher, accessible via a hidden entrance, along with Lotus – a modern south-east Asian restaurant set over all three levels.

Lotus’ direction will come under the guidance of Nokturnl’s Executive Chef Leigh Power and Lotus Head Chef Sundoo Kim.
