New Bar & Restaurant Takes Over Cushdy’s Former Location on Hindley

New bar & restaurant on Hindley street, Dat Place, also doubles up as a nightclub.


Dat Place is a brand new bar and restaurant located on Hindley Street at the former well-known Cushdy location. From day, it’s a bar and restaurant and after hours it converts to a nightclub.

Adelaide local Johnny Moradi is the man behind this venture. After taking over the venue, most recently home to Titanium Nightclub, and over months of intense renovating with 15-17 hour work days, Johnny opened Dat Place to the public on the 6 of July.

Johnny has utilised his wealth of experience in the hospitality industry to channel all of his knowledge, hard work, savings and passion into this business. Dat Place is Johnny’s biggest dream.

Dat Place boasts a large custom made pizza wood oven and a menu that offers the classics like burgers, pastas, salads, schnitzels, sides and finger food. There are also vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options available.

Accompanying their range of dishes is a large list of funky cocktails, an extensive wine list, beers on tap and coffees.

There are also three unique rooms for patrons to choose from, the Blue Room, the Red Room and the VIP Room.

The Blue Room is where the pizza wood oven is located and is fitted with custom lounges which can be moved around to accommodate a large number of guests. This room also has four large TVs and an outdoor balcony that comfortably fits 10 people.

The Red Room is the dining area. Here you can find a stage booth which seats 10 people and doubles as a stage for live music every Friday night. There is also a DJ booth for Saturday nights. At 10pm all the chairs and tables are folded away to make way for a dance floor. The red room also hosts a red balcony located next to the bar.

This large bar has an impressive vintage granite top and a restored titanium front which reveals old 70’s sheet metal that hasn’t been seen for years.

For those after a more special experience, the VIP Room is for you. This space is decorated with Versace velvet chairs, a Versace solid marble table, two white trees and silver matching curtains that wrap around the room for privacy. The wall even has custom mirror art that has the Medusa head watching over its special guests.

Dat Place is currently open Wednesday to Sunday, 6pm till late but plans to open for lunches soon. Also keep an eye out for the venue appearing on Uber Eats and Menu Log by next month.

Dat Place can be found at 279A Hindley St, SA, 5000.
