Rechabites Hall opens with Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah

Northbridge’s Rechabites Hall comes back to life when a new show Boom Boom in the Casa Blah Blah arrives in town.

The Rechabite in William Street is a new venue born from the forgotten shell of one of Perth’s grand heritage treasures. In its new incarnation, The Rechabite is a multi-level play space that houses Perth’s most exciting new entertainment and hospitality offerings.

To launch this highly anticipated new venue, The Rechabite have teamed up with Strut & Fret, the award-winning, record-breaking creators of Blanc de Blanc and LIMBO, to present the world premiere of Boom Boom in The House of Casa Blah Blah.

Having just taken Las Vegas by storm, Strut & Fret are back to rock The Rechabite with this brand new show that has been designed specifically for the venue.

Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah will play at The Rechabite, 224 William Street, Northbrige, from 1 November – 21 December 2019 and is on sale now with tickets available from www.boomboomblahblah.com

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.

Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah will unleash WA darlings 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) into the space.

The show’s director Scott Maidment said he was excited to have been able to create a new production for the launch of the new venue.

“I’m super excited to be creating a new show for this unique, innovative new space. The super talented, high-energy cast will bring great music, acrobatics and dance to a space that has its own individual character for a show will be unlike anything Perth has seen before!”

Tickets to the show will be the first way patrons can see inside the reimagined Rechabite Hall.

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 leave you asking, ‘how low can you go?’

Sprung from the streets of Asia, Double Rainbow is a fast and furious bar and eatery that has landed on the ground floor of the William Street establishment – she’s spicy, sultry and sassy. It’s a fresh new offering from the wild talents of Executive Chef, Jesse Blake (Petition, NOA).

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 described by the owners as being “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.

Conceived by Marcus Canning, Adrian Fini and the Litis family (who together are some of the original creators of the Fringe World Festival, Little Creatures Brewery, The Bakery, Rooftop Movies, Venn Gallery, the State Buildings and Petition Kitchen), The Rechabite is set to inject a whole lot of fresh life and colour into Perth’s entertainment scene, nightlife precinct and cultural heart… starting with Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah.

Former Fringe World CEO Marcus Canning said the venue will become an iconic part of Perth.

“We are so excited to welcome the people of Perth into this multi-level palace of surprise and delight. We’ve assembled a sensational team of hospitality greats who are champing at the bit to open the doors and share what is set to be an instantly iconic hub of entertainment and pleasure. Opening with BOOM BOOM is guaranteed to set us off with a BANG!” Canning said.

Boom Boom in the House of Casa Blah Blah will play at The Rechabite, 224 William Street, Northbrige, from 1 November – 21 December 2019 and is on sale now with tickets available from www.boomboomblahblah.com
