The Space

History

Guildhall

Guildhall is situated in a building once known as the North Fremantle Literary Institute.

For over 100 years, North Fremantle had its own council and met in the town hall, adjacent to Guildhall. This area was considered a community hub, bringing people together since 1904 and we are delighted to carry on this fine tradition.

Guildhall now hosts refined gatherings, sumptuous feasts and our favourite of all  - the perfect wedding.

Spaces

  • Reading Room

    The Reading Room is an intimate and comfortable wood-panelled room tastefully decorated with a collection of original paintings. It is the perfect space for pre-dinner drinks, a photo-booth, a private space for the bridal party or for older guests to step away from the party for a brief moment.

  • Foyer

    Beyond the discreet street entrance, the wonder of Guildhall unfolds. The foyer is a spectacle unto itself, painted in a deep, dark green and featuring Corbusier lights, vintage rug, a piano and soaring ceilings. It is the perfect space to mingle for drinks before a cocktail party, to house a band under the staircase or place a gift table.

  • Bar

    A more contemporary space featuring white walls and artfully styled with vintage Kilim stools, a long velvet booth and cane tables. The arched back bar is an elegant focal point and serves as the perfect location for a hero flower display. A series of glass doors lead into the courtyard, allowing guests to mingle seamlessly between the indoors and outdoors.

  • Courtyard

    Enveloped in vine-clad walls, the Courtyard offers a tranquil and private outdoor event space. Opening off the main bar area, this hidden oasis offers a spectacular area to exchange vows and later dance the night away under the stars.

  • Facilities

    All facilities at Guildhall reflect the charm and style of the venue, no matter whether you're ordering a drink at the bar or taking a moment to powder your nose.
