One of the latest event spaces to open in Perth is The Raft, an open-air boarding platform permanently moored on the Swan River.
To access The Raft, patrons have to arrive at Barrack St Jetty No.5 prior to boarding the tender vessel. The 40-person tender transports patrons to and from The Raft (a 15-minute return journey). The tender will disembark Barrack St Jetty No.5 every 15 minutes or on an as-need basis throughout the event.
The 445m2 floating event space can cater for a maximum of 250 patrons standing or 150 seated. The event space can also accommodate mobility aids and wheelchairs, and is suitable for all weather conditions thanks to the retractable roof and blinds.
From the floating platform, guests will be able to take in vistas of Perth City, Elizabeth Quay and Kings Park.
The fully-licensed venue has no option to BYO beverages or food (except cakes), as head chef Oliver Buenviaje offers curated menus featuring fresh, local produce according to all tastes and budget sizes.
Drink options start at A$60 (US$43.40) per pax for three hours, and includes a selection of sparkling, reds, whites, softs and craft beers from across Australia. From January to October, the minimum spend is A$5,000.
Optional services include the hire of DJ equipment, party lights, festoon lighting, furniture and linen hire, as well as a set up and pack up fee.
The Raft’s prices start at A$2,500 for three hours rental from Mondays to Thursdays during the lower season of May to October.
