Storytellers @ the Mortlock is returning to Adelaide this July, bringing a touch of magic to the iconic Mortlock Chamber at the State Library of South Australia.

Teaming up with Thebarton-based distillery, Storytellers Distillery, the library will be transformed into a pop-up gin from July 5th to 21st, opening its doors from 5:30pm to 10:30pm nightly.

Within the Mortlock Chamber, guests can enjoy a handpicked selection of Storytellers Distillery’s finest gins, expertly paired with top-shelf mixers, delicious cocktails and winter-warming food.

The enchanting experience coincides perfectly with Illuminate, Adelaide’s City Lights festival along North Terrace, offering a cozy spot where the community can enjoy a gin or two among the vibrant winter atmosphere of the CBD.

“Our historic Mortlock Chamber is a beautiful, unique space and it was wonderful to see so many people visit Storytellers @ the Mortlock last year, as they made their way along the Illuminate Adelaide City Lights,” Director of the State Library of South Australia, Geoff Strempel, said.

“We are very pleased to be elevating the experience even further this year.”

This year, there is a new exclusive experience where guests can enjoy a gin tasting flight and cocktails from the balcony of the Mortlock Chamber, while overlooking the fun happening below. Plus, there will be special ticketed events as per usual as part of the event, including:

  • TattleTales: Saturday July 13th
  • Please be Quiet! Silent Disco!: Friday July 19th
  • Mortlock Exclusive Balcony Gin and Cocktail Tasting Experience: Held daily at 5pm, 6:40pm, 8:20pm, and 10pm.

“We had such a wonderful time with the State Library of South Australia to deliver Storytellers @ The Mortlock last year, and are look forward to going even bigger and better in 2024,” Storytellers Distillery Head Distiller, Lachlan Gunner, said.

“We will be giving guests an even more immersive and delicious experience with winter-warming food, an elevated cocktail experience, the popular return of our sold-out events from last year and exclusive access to the upstairs auror of the Mortlock wing.”

Storytellers @ the Mortlock pop-up gin bar is set debut with its first evening on Friday July 5th, infusing the iconic Mortlock Chamber at the State Library of South Australia with a touch of magic. Don’t miss out!
