Support Kelp Bar to re-open

437 Signatures Goal: 100,000

Kelp Bar was a concept trialled by Joanna Robertson, director of Kidogo Arthouse on Bathers Beach in Fremantle. Kelp Bar was a sunset beach bar operating out of the painting studio at Kidogo Arthouse overlooking Bathers Beach in Fremantle.


The trial ran for 18 days during the ISAF Worlds Sailing Championships in Fremantle held between 1st and 18th Dec 2011.

Kelp Bar defined what had been missing in Fremantle since the America's Cup in 1987 - a relaxed, artist run bar on the beach promoting the elusive "Freo vibe" of the 70s and 80s.

Joanna Robertson, in response to the community's support of Kelp Bar, is applying to the City of Fremantle and the Dept of Racing, Gaming and Liquor to be granted a bar license.

ACTION: If you would like to see Kelp Bar back in action, serving youdelicious mojitos overlooking the best sunset views in the Fremantle, then please sign this petition and tell us why you think Kelp Bar would be good for the community/ Fremantle/ Perth/ Western Australia/ the World..... Email comments to:info@kidogo.com.au or post a comment on our facebook site "Kidogo Arthouse". Please share this action with your friends!!!

UPDATE:To everyone asking when “Kelp Bar” will reopen... the answer is – It may never be possible until the Council mergers happen.

In two years of trying Joanna is still being blocked from within the City of Fremantle from even submitting a planning application for the resurrection of Kelp Bar to be considered.

Additional toilets need to be allowed to be built at Kidogo before a bar license can be considered. The Mayor does not like where heritage will agree the toilets should go, and heritage will not agree to what the Mayor thinks should happen at Kidogo - so precisely zero progress has been made in progressing plans to get Kelp Bar to happen.

How desperately sad…

Hopefully there are some Councillors in Fremantle who support the very simple, heritage approved toilet designs and with their lobbying, and your lobbying, of other councillors Joanna can be given the green light to actually submit a planning application...

If any of you have advice for Joanna please email (info@kidogo.com.au)

If you are friends with any of the City of Fremantle Councillors, please ask them to support Kidogo's proposal.

To see the proposed, very simple plans contact Kidogo (93359636)


Thank you all so much for your continued support - Looking forward to welcoming you to Kelp Bar in the near future.
