It’s Thursday night. Not quite the weekend. Is it close enough to Saturday for a cocktail? The jury is still out. 

What if that cocktail included a few superfoods?

The Sussex Hotel now has a dedicated offering of “wellness cocktails”. 

This cocktail menu sounds so impressively healthy, it could almost be mistaken for a contemporary smoothie/juice selection. You know, the kind you order on a Sunday morning in a bid to prepare yourself for the week ahead.

Punters can order a Kombucha Margarita, an Acai Blackberry Mojito, or a Green Bloody Mary.

The Sussex Hotel has also recently undergone a makeover. It is actually one of only three true art deco pubs in South Australian, and the renovation serves to highlight the original design. 

New to the Sussex kitchen is chef Kane Pallett. Pallett has been cooking with the group for 5 years with mentoring from Union’s head chef, Chris Wilson.

The Sussex’s menu emphasises local ingredients and classic pub favourites. Shared starters include chargrilled prawns with a spiced mango chutney, and modern mains, such as pepper crusted kangaroo fillet with sweet potato puree, prune labneh, roasted hazelnuts and rosemary jus. 

The redesigned front bar has been enriched with a range of new craft beers and selection of wines, with an exciting new line up of entertainment. 

There is a deal on at the Sussex every night, with kids eating free on a Monday, Quiz Night on Tuesday, Wings on Wednesday, DJs on Fridays and Saturdays and to close the week, a traditional Sunday Roast. 

The Sussex also informed us there is a new beer garden in the works for summer.

In the meantime, why not go and get yourself an Acai Blackberry Mojito.
