5245 Bar & Bistro has just opened its doors in Hahndorf Reserve, bringing a relaxed dining experience overlooking the picturesque Adelaide Hills.
The venue was once home to Three Gums Bistro. Being located within the Discovery Parks Hahndorf Resort, the Discovery Parks have now taken over the space along with Adelaide Hills Convention Centre.
With a new name and whole new menu, 5245 Bar & Bistro brings a fresh take to the scenic venue.
5245 Bar & Bistro manager Michelle Buckley said the new venue welcomes a range of people to have a relaxed meal with stunning views.
“We are appealing to locals and all those staying in the Discovery Park,” Michelle said.
“We wanted to bring a menu that’s not too expensive. We are offering a light casual bistro style menu with daily specials too.
“We want families with kids to come up from the park, and locals to have a relaxed meal.”
The menu at 5245 Bar & Bistro has a strong focus on sourcing produce locally. Michelle said all fruit and vegetables come from the Hahndorf Fruit & Veg Market, while local meat and produce suppliers are used too.
The menu offers a selection of small plates including arancini balls, spring rolls, dips and fries. There’s a refreshing salad menu, classic mains such as salt and pepper squid, burgers and schnitzels, and yummy desserts to choose from too.
Michelle said a star dish so far has been the burrito bowl with chicken, corn, black beans, guacamole, sour cream, and pita.
5245 Bar & Bistro offers a breakfast menu with morning essentials such as croissants and a brekkie stack. Michelle said the vegan wrap has been very popular, as the venue ensures it caters for a range of dietary requirements.
There’s a snacks menu that people can enjoy in between meals with light dishes and an extensive drinks menu to choose from with an SA focus.
Michelle said they are hoping to introduce summer Sunday sessions on the deck soon with acoustic live music and a potential wine of the month special.
“We just want people to feel relaxed in a welcoming environment,” Michelle said.
“We are creating an indoor and outdoor feel with a chill setting.
“It’s not fine dining – you can come up in shorts or thongs, or come up for a lovely dinner in the evening.
“We want to ensure all know they’re welcome.”
5245 Bar & Bistro is located at 182 Mount Barker Rd, Hahndorf.
