The Station in South Perth

The Verdict

After two successful heritage transformations, Nokturnl—the hospo crew behind popular multi-venue precincts The Old Synagogue (Fremantle) and The Beaufort (Mount Lawley)—are set to do it all again; this time with a 1908 federation style Police Station on the corner of Labouchere Road and Mends Street in South Perth.

Fresh from its $8 million dollar reno, The Station follows the same successful venues-within-a-venue concept, with a few distinct spaces to explore: a sophisticated cafe (opening for breakfast in 2024), a large gastropub complete with wine courtyards and beer gardens aplenty, and an elegant 130-seat French basement restaurant, Ludu, that takes its name from head chef Ludovic “Ludo” Mulot (ex-Rockpool Bar & Grill).

With his wide-spanning global culinary experience, Mulot will bring refined technique and a touch of French opulence to South Perth, with dishes like Western Rock lobster eclair with tarragon, celery and caviar and Wagin duck sausage with sautéed red cabbage, apple and red wine jus.

"We’ve had a lot of fun with Ludo since he came to us at The Old Synagogue," says Co-owner Ross Drennan. "We love working with him and this restaurant (Ludo) is a nod to him and recognition of his talents. We always knew Ludo’s real passion was for French cooking and this is going to be his culinary legacy. This is his job for life.”

The Station officially opens on Monday 18 December.
