Ever been to Beaufort Street in WA? Now, there are exciting reasons to do so.

Behind the scenes
This building was used as a warehouse in the 1950s by the Turvey Brothers where they manufactured furniture. It was later used by Empire, the furniture retailer, who closed shop in 2019.
After Nokturnl purchased the building in 2020, the plans to turn it into a chic hospitality complex took shape.
The Beaufort is the latest multi-level hospitality venue developed by the team that revamped The Old Synagogue.
