A Wellington Street former massage parlour could become a three-storey nightclub complete with robotic cocktail machine, according to plans submitted to the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor.
The 789 Wellington Street, Perth site has become an eyesore in recent years, previously home to a massage parlour and subject to continued vandalism.
Named 11:45, the nightclub is proposed to transform the site into a luxurious three-storey nightclub aimed at over-25s, with a total capacity of 1400 patrons when all three floors are utilised.
“While Perth has several nightclubs that provide a traditional nightclub experience, with expansive dance floors, loud music, little seating and targeting younger people (18-25-year olds),” the application reads.
“The proposed venue will be targeted at an older age demographic (25 and above), through different offerings to catering to that crowd, providing services such as coat holding, food, significantly more seating than available in other venues, music at a lower decibel level, luxury, and service.”
“The venue will cater for a variety culturally diverse genres of music through local, interstate, and international artists, including live music and DJ’s specialising in varietal music genres. The variety of music and live offerings will enhance the experience of the venue.”
“The venue will give a different offering to those who want to go out and are deterred by
younger crowds, lack of seating and uninspiring décor.”
“The applicant proposes to install a robotic cocktail machine, which will be a great tourism draw card, being the first of its kind in Australia, the appropriate control mechanisms and venue are required. This will along with the décor and seating options allow for a cocktail nightclub experience currently not available in Perth.”
