Perth’s first permanent floating event space, The Raft is brought to us by brother and sister team, Katie and Dan Chrystal, who wanted to bring something seriously different to Perth.
The huge 445 square metre space can hold up to 250 people (180 for a seated event) and don’t worry, anyone onboard can come and go as they please thanks to the private tender which is decked out with its own sound system so you can get the party started as soon as you step off Barrack St Jetty No. 5.
No expense has been spared and the fit-out is next level thanks to Gabrielle Scott, the mastermind behind Guildhall and Porch and Parlour. It’s elegant but not pretentious with design inspo drawn from WA’s coastline and bespoke furniture coming from the legends at Remington Matters.
When it comes to the food, Heyders & Shears is on the job and will be whipping up excellent bites while the drinks are all locally sourced. There are plenty of food and beverage options to suit any event, from cocktail to a full sit down affair.
Keep an eye out for a packed lineup of Summer events from bottomless brunches and live music, to boozy yoga and more. Or if you’d prefer to host something special of your own, get in touch with the team to start planning.
