Dave’s Cans

Built from the remnants of the old MYER Fremantle building, Dave’s Cans is a rooftop event bar project personally undertaken by the DWA team. With atmosphere reminiscent of an old friend’s backyard fiesta, the significant focus was on the repurposing of materials, much like the once-derelict building that resides below, which has been injected with new life from the Spacemarket team.

With the assistance of MANY 6160 occupants and supported by the local Fremantle community – from food suppliers to tune makers – the rooftop bar was made possible through an Indiegogo campaign, and the dream of enjoying a drink underneath the Perth night sky.

Architectural work was completed by David Weir Architects, with Dave’s Cans being a part of the story of the future development of Fremantle’s historic 5000m² rooftop.
