Summer has arrived in South Australia, and the warmer weather means there is nothing better than kicking back and relaxing, preferably with a cocktail in hand.
Victoria Park Social Club knows this, and their balmy Sunday sessions – where guests can sip on limoncello spritz and marvel at the iconic parklands – is perhaps Adelaide’s best-kept secret.
Sunday doesn’t have to mean the weekend is over, with VPSC bringing zesty booze, beats and bocci to the eastern parklands.
“The space gets used Friday and Saturday for private events as it is quite a unique space and has a larger capacity that you don’t often find in the CBD,” says venue manager Jules Kunst.
“With the Sunday, it’s our chance to be able to share the food that we love with the community and have a nice community space.”
The regular Sunday afternoon session is the best way to kiss the weekend goodbye, catch up with friends and let the little ones blow off some steam on the parkland’s lush green lawns and racing track.
“It’s an extension of a home space to a degree… it’s not a place where you have to get dressed up or blow your paycheque at,” says Jules.
“It’s a nice relaxed family-friendly place that you can come and get away to.”
Chow down on mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas from VPSC’s talented chefs. From a fungi pizza – with Portobello mushrooms, fontina cheese and drizzled in truffle oil – to a classic Margherita pizza, there’s something that will tickle everyone’s taste buds.
While VPSC serves up a slice of pizza paradise, the social club is also slinging plates of delicious pasta and other snacks for you to try – including an array of weekly specials.
Let your competitive streak shine with a game of bocci, or wash your worries away with the fruity and fresh cocktails expertly crafted by the venues mixologist gurus. Soundtracking the Sunday afternoons will be an array of DJ’s, bringing the hottest beats to the end of the balmy weekend.
“It’s a corner of the parklands where a lot hasn’t been going on,” says Jules. “It’s exciting to bring something to this side of the city.”
“[Victoria Park Social Club] is a little bit of an oasis in the centre of the city.”
The Sunday fun kicks off at midday, with the kitchen open until 5pm. Still peckish? Wood-fired pizzas and snacks will be going until 7pm.
