Be amongst the first in Perth to say “Hi!” to Maggie’s.
Come midnight this Friday, June 26 (well… technically 12.01am Saturday, June 27), the doors of 393 Murray St will once again fling open, as Magnet House – or simply Maggie’s – reveals a decadent new era of dancefloor debauchery. The#covidapocalypse is over; time to dance, dahling.
Touted as Perth’s 21st-century answer to Studio 54, the former Capitol promises the glittering return of the club; total escapism where time – and the banalities of adulthood – are well and truly left at the door.
Before it was the heart of Perth’s nightlife, 393 Murray was the premises of British General Electric Co., distributing mining machinery and branded appliances, with the building being officially named Magnet House during its formative years. To this day, the iconic Magnet House façade remains, and will withstand the test of time as it becomes the namesake for 393 Murray’s next nightlife incarnation.
The real feature of Maggie’s lays within the multi-million-dollar production install. The first of its kind in Australia, the multi-dimensional, kinetic lighting rig boasts 1.5million addressable LED pixels that literally dance in front of your eyes. Think tessellating triangles that can be choreographed, the entire ceiling being transformed into a wave of light, a giant cube that forms and shatters before you… the kaleidoscopic possibilities are endless.
Design giants Technical Alliance and BHo Interiors have created in Maggie’s one of the most high-tech and variable nightlife experiences in Australia. Adding to this is a slew of private, bookable booths in both the upstairs and downstairs areas.
With three bars spread across two levels, plus two separate rooms hosting unique DJs, Maggie’s promises unending possibilities and late nights full of surreal surprises.
Programming-wise you can expect to watch some of the world’s best live bands and DJs play ticketed shows, with the Maggie’s house DJs playing until late. Very late.
Magnet House, formerly Capitol, opens at 12.01am on Saturday, June 27.
