Offering live music from local and touring talent, Duke of George is about to hit East Fremantle’s George Street with a whole lot of southern hospitality.

In the basement of the heritage-listed Brush Factory, the 200-seat venue will be boasting some epic jazz gigs. WAAPA trained Renee Coyle is opening the venue, after an impressive personal career across many stages.

Expect a mix of house band sessions and ticketed events, with enough blues, jazz, folk and soul music to cater to everyone. In Renee’s words, “the dream has been to build a room where Blues meet Jazz and Jazz meets Blues and everyone can have a damn fine time.”


The Duke will offer two live performances 4 days a week and present its premier gig – the Saturday night Dinner Show with reserved seating and table service.��Expect the best in Blues, Jazz, Folk and Soul with house bands & acoustic sessions, Supper Club and ticketed shows. Keep a look out for more show announcements soon and swing to the sound of New Orleans from Jan 18! �� . . . . . #openingsoon #Fremantle #freo #fremantlestory #perthisok #perthlife #infreo #perth #perthfood #pertheats #perthtodo #jazz #music #jazzmusic #bluesmusic #supperclub #perthmusic #southernfood #perthevents #livemusic #heritage #venue #livemusicvenue #jazzhouse

Keeping with the New Orleans theme, the food menu is pretty impressive. Inspired by the traditional flavours of Southern Louisiana, you can expect the sharing bites to feature amazing local produce, which you can enjoy in front of the fireplace or the stage; think creole pork belly bites with apple slaw.

Of course, the booze will be top notch; high-quality wines, craft brews and sensational cocktails.

Duke of George opens on 18 January with Fringe World's Dirty Jazz starring Jessie Gordon.
