The historic Ball & Chain pub dates back over 100 years, housing convicts before the Fremantle Prison was built and has been the home to many influential Fremantle figures throughout the years. It is located on the corner of Marine Terrace and Collie Street at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges.
It is a unique venue for your next Fremantle function with Western Australia’s largest range of Matilda Bay craft beer, an extensive whisky selection and delicious pub grub available. You and your group can base yourself indoors in the Bourbon Street Lounge or chill out in the sweet summer sun of the Beer Garden on Marine Terrace overlooking Esplanade Park. If you are looking for a venue with a difference, then the Ball & Chain is for you.
For weddings in Fremantle the Ball & Chain’s Bourbon Street Lounge with spirit’s library and original fireplace is a truly quirky setting for your small celebration either stand up cocktail style or long table dining.
