About This Venue

The historic Ball & Chain pub dates back over 100 years, housing convicts before the Fremantle Prison was built and being 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.

In 1896 the building on the site was first used as a Hotel and later became a well-known corner pub ‘Hubbles’ after its owner; a meeting place for the working class of Perth’s Fremantle suburb with boxing tournaments out the back and dock-workers picked up on the veranda who sat on the timber benches still outside today. Over the years, the Pub has been beautifully restored, highlighting some of the unique features of yesteryear and tastefully decorated with warm timber and copper finishes

It is a unique venue for your Fremantle wedding with Western Australia’s largest range of Matilda Bay craft beer, an extensive whisky selection and delicious food available. You and your guests 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. 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. If you are looking for a wedding venue with a difference… the Ball & Chain is for you.
