Fringe is coming, and bringing with it a whole swag of pop-up bars and laneway parties. Treat yourself to a night out with a drink in one hand and good vibes all around at one of these events in and around the Fringe.
Rundle Street’s New York-themed bar will show its wild side during the Fringe by transforming into a gin jungle. You’ll feel like Tarzan swinging from a vine, while tasting a variety of international distilleries each week at the pop up pallet bar. There will be a different feature gin and feature cocktail each week, or you can just sup on BRKLYN’s popular Booze and Juice.
Adelaide’s favourite street party is back for a night of great tunes, delicious food stalls and plenty of cocktails. Waymouth Street Party is on March 8, when the bars and restaurants will flow into the street, and the asphalt will double as a dance floor. It’s on from 4pm. Entry is free.
The good times at NOLA will burst through the doors and fill the laneway next door with New Orleans inspired food, drink, and good tunes every Thursday to Sunday for the entire Fringe period. There’ll be plenty of their signature fried chicken to go around, plus some of the best and most limited independent beers on tap. And they’re not afraid to flaunt their hugely diverse whisky range. Read all about it here.
Returning for its second year, Artisans of Adelaide is bringing together a pop-up bar and a night market, right on Rundle Street. Sitting in the former T2 store (276-278 Rundle Street), you can sip on Caught Redhanded Wines from McLaren Vale, and shop from local boutique makers (there’s everything from handcrafted jewellery and vintage clothes to makeup, vegan skincare). Starting on February 15, it’s open Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm-late all throughout Fringe, with live music on Fridays. Find out more info here.
Vardon Ave will close to the traffic on weekend evening during Fringe to make way for a full Fringe street party, complete with alfresco dining tables and chairs, eateries and bars so you can roam the East End with no worries. And everyone will be open late, so you can come and go as you please.
It’s on every weekend of the Fringe. Click here to see the dates and opening times.
The Ebenezer Night Markets took a break in January, but it’s back at Ebenezer Place, just off Rundle Street, during Fringe. You’ll find stalls aplenty including food, jewellery and unique artistic creations, and a live DJ will be spinning tunes. Click here to choose a date.
Kicking off from Friday 22, Hello Fridays at the Chapel on Lot Fourteen returns. They’re starting off with a bang celebrating World Margarita Day with Propaganda Adelaide. Celebrate your love for margaritas, get your lime and salt ready and enjoy some great live tunes, from 4-8pm. More info here. You’ll also be able to find the EM Espresso Martini Van out on North Terrace on the Sheraton Lawn at Lot Fourteen from 5 – 9pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night during the Fringe.
To celebrate Fringe, Lady Burra Brewhouse has launched their Fringe Pitt Stop in the Lady Burra alley. Head there for a bite to eat and a drink or two before or after a show. Get two tapas from the tapas menu for just $15, and if you show a Fringe ticket, get your first round of drinks 2-4-1. It’s on every day of Fringe, from 11am-late.
