Welcome to PUNCH.
An unassuming bar nestled between a massage parlour and a laundromat in the West sits the newest hotspot that is revolutionising the take-home booze scene.
PUNCH is the latest creation by Jameson Gregg, a seasoned bartender with a knack for crafting memorable drinks menus for some of the city’s most beloved bars. And now, he’s pouring his talent and passion into his very own venture.
Jameson shares his motivation behind opening PUNCH with a refreshingly honest take.
The pandemic took its toll on the industry, leading to a mix of burnout among experienced staff and a flood of newbies behind the bar. This inspired Jameson to dive deep into creating top-notch cocktail and wine lists without breaking the bank, ultimately leading him to serve these concoctions himself.
And, naturally, the next step was Jameson’s very own venue. A brand new bar and bottle shop on Tapley’s Hill Road.
The bar itself is a find, with a laid-back atmosphere filled with natural light, making it a perfect escape from the everyday.
Sustainability is at the core of PUNCH’s philosophy. The bar’s aesthetic features reclaimed timber and a colour-shifting mosaic stone floor, showcasing their commitment to both the environment and stylish design.
But there’s more to PUNCH than a cool space. They’re revolutionising the drink-and-dash culture with their take-home cocktails in cans.
“Imagine enjoying your favourite cocktail at home without the fuss,” Jameson explains. “Our on-site canning machine means you can have a few cocktails here, pick your favourite, and take home a four pack.”
This innovative approach offers a new level of convenience and quality, allowing patrons to savour PUNCH’s signature drinks, like their take on a Tom Collins, anytime, anywhere.
“We’re the first in Adelaide doing this,” Jameson notes.
And they’re not just any drinks. Jameson, with his impressive track record in national and international cocktail competitions, brings a level of expertise and innovation to the table that is truly something else.
PUNCH doesn’t stop at drinks. The menu includes handmade pasta, weekly new wines, and take-away charcuterie boards—perfect for a quick grab on your way to the beach.
But wait, there’s more to Punch than just their cool bar vibe! Fancy having them jazz up your next event? They’ve got you covered with everything you need to throw a bash that’ll be the talk of the town. From skilled bartenders and live tunes to mouth-watering catering and, of course, their killer award-winning cocktails, Punch is ready to bring the party to you.
Whether it’s a backyard soiree or a fancy shindig, they’re all about making your gathering unforgettable.
“We’ve built something special here, focusing on great flavours and a welcoming experience.” Jameson said.
