Mayfair Hotel’s chic HENNESSY rooftop bar will open its new glass-topped alfresco terrace, complete with beautiful vertical garden adorned with HENNESSY in lights, to the public on Friday, July 21.
The terrace features luxurious underfloor heating and tiled bar around the edge of the terrace, providing plenty of opportunity for admiring the city skyline, the new-look alfresco terrace makes HENNESSY the perfect year-round venue.
Mayfair Hotel general manager Martin Radcliffe said the HENNESSY upgrade would cement the venue’s reputation as Adelaide’s most sophisticated bar.
“Since opening to the public just over a year ago HENNESSY has become a popular nightspot for both locals and visitors to Adelaide, and we’re delighted that we can now enhance the roof-top experience for use in all seasons.”
The alfresco terrace features a stunning steel frame and glass ceiling designed by Adelaide architect and structural engineer Mike Dare, who recently appeared on Grand Designs Australia, with the overall project and fit-out managed by South Australian firm, Pinnacle.
HENNESSY’s popular champagne terrace, which is overlooked by the historic building’s resident gargoyles, retains its current character and style, as will the opulent interior of the bar, which features five crystal chandeliers, a marble bar and Atelier Versace chairs.
HENNESSY offers a carefully curated selection of South Australian, Australian and International wine, beer and spirits, complemented by a regionally-driven menu featuring South Australia’s finest produce. Innovative and appealing house cocktails are also a popular feature for the bar.
The July 21 opening will feature menu tastings from the HENNESSY menu, as well as wine tastings by House of Arras, from 5pm to 7pm. Guests who arrive before 7pm will receive a complimentary glass of sparkling on arrival. There will be live music to entertain guests from 4pm to 7pm, and a DJ from 7pm until late.
HENNESSY was recently the only Adelaide venue to be nominated as a finalist in the Best Bar category of the 2017 Gourmet Traveller Awards and in the Qantas 2017 Business Travel Awards.
