THE RECHABITE Is back! Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah


The Rechabite is a shiny new venue born from the forgotten shell of one of Perth’s grand heritage treasures. In its new incarnation, it is a multi-level play space that houses Perth’s most exciting new entertainment and hospitality offerings. To launch this highly anticipated new venue, they’ve teamed up with Strut & Fret to present the world premiere of Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah, a brand new show that has been designed specifically for The Rechabite running November 1 – December 21.

Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah is a bespoke party served in a crystal shot glass, where guests are invited to join a cast of loud, bolshy, glamorous gate-crashers to kick off Perth’s summer season. Unleashed will be Louis Biggs (Briefs) and Jess Mews (Blanc de Blanc), daredevil Spanish aerialist David Marco, smooth French acrobat, Felix Pouliot (Blanc de Blanc Encore, Cirque du Soleil), and high-kicking Australian stunners Rechelle Mansour (Velvet) and Melanie Hawkins (Blanc de Blanc Encore, King Kong).

With a mission to occupy the ruin, lots has changed inside The Rechabite, but lots hasn’t. The complex offers four floors of surprise and delight, wrapped around a new live performance space built into the original Independent Order of Rechabite’s hall. Goodwill Club in the venue’s bunker serves contemporary dive-bar vibes and basement beats that will leave you asking, “how low can you go?”

Ascend the grand heritage staircase into to The Rechabite Hall, a jaw-dropping, multi-arts performance space with magnificent barrel vault ceiling and ingenious suspension bridge tiers ensuring there isn’t a bad seat from any of the three levels inside the hall. Head further north to kick-back and kick-it at Hello, the scenic rooftop-bar with cold brews and fresh views for miles. Named after a graffiti tag left on the building exterior, this bar is probably cooler than you.

Ironically, the original Rechabite Hall was erected in 1925 for the Independent Order of Rechabites, a friendly society which promoted total abstinence from alcohol. If they could see her now. Original features such as the staircase, tiling, ticketing booth and huge double doors are juxtaposed with finishes like prison mesh, which has been used throughout the venue, and exposed utility workings.

Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah runs at The Rechabite, 224 William Street, Northbridge, from November 1 – December 21, click here for tickets.
