From noon – 11pm, Leigh Street will be closed to vehicular traffic entering from Currie Street, allowing restaurants to spill out onto the character-laden street with increased outdoor dining space. With its already vibrant mix of restaurants, including Rigoni’s, Cos, Bollywood Indian Restaurant, The Corner Bistrot, Korea Jung, Casablabla and Ajisen Ramen, diners will be sure to enjoy a convivial dining experience right in the heart of the CBD. Leigh Street favourites Coffee Branch and Waffles will also be joining in the weekly alfresco event while hot night spot Zhivago will be open later in the evening.
“Leigh Streets' Fridays will rival the great character laneways of Melbourne, New York and Europe. With its historic charm, CBD location and high quality dining experiences, what better way to finish a working week than by watching all the colour of the world go by while enjoying what Leigh Street has to offer”, says Peter Burrows of Cos Restaurant.
Perfect for an outdoor lunch, dinner or after work drink, Leigh Street will be closed to traffic every Friday until the end of March 2012 [except 30 December 2011 and 6 January 2012] for restaurant-goers to enjoy this fantastic experience in one of Adelaide’s finest streets.
Leigh Street is located between Currie and Hindley Streets, and features a unique mix of beautiful character and heritage buildings with links to the history of Adelaide and South Australia. Leigh Street’s dynamic mix of businesses, shops and restaurants ensures its ongoing popularity.
