Triple-1-Three purchases majority stake of iconic Fremantle venue
WA-based brewing and hospitality group Triple-1-Three has acquired a majority stake in live music haven Mojo’s Bar.
As part of the deal, the North Fremantle venue will now operate under the Triple-1-Three umbrella alongside Otherside Brewing, Otherside Brewhouse and Freo.Social and will continue to function as a live music venue.
The hospitality group has also revealed the appointment of Amber Hatten as the venue’s new band booker, with Hatten commencing her role with the venue this month.
Triple-1-Three’s CEO, Al Taylor, celebrated Mojo’s as one of Western Australia’s greatest venues, saying that the acquisition was a massive step forward for the hospitality group.
“Music – and in particular live music – sits at the heart of our DNA. Mojo’s is, unquestionably, one of the greatest live music venues in the state. A venue that has always nurtured and championed live music,” Taylor said.
“So, to us, it made all the sense in the world strategically, commercially and culturally. It really was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.”
Mojo’s general manager and shareholder’ Gabe Parkin’ celebrated the acquisition as the dawn of a new era for the iconic venue.
“We are really excited to be working with Al, James and the rest of the Triple-1-Three team. They truly live and breathe music – and the beer isn’t too bad either,” Parkin said.
“What they’ve done with Freo.Social is just brilliant. A great venue, with a great culture. It has a much bigger music room, so I see the two venues complementing each other really well. It’s an exciting new chapter for Mojo’s.”
