Walking past Victoria Square offers quite a few spots for the hungry traveller. Whether that travel be a lunch break or a visitor expanding past the central CBD.
A new addition where burger joint, The Taxpayer, once was is here to add to that selection.
Wild Nectre is the brain child of Dean Jennings and Charles Olweny, who was previously the venue manager at MYLK BAR. An accumulative 40 years of experience between the two has led into the creation of Wild Nectre.
Dean, who has recently been working on Atura Hotel’s bar setup says that the Victoria Square venue perfect to what they were looking for. A space that is going to be formed by its patrons.
Wild Nectre has no theme, rather it’s a space that is ready to be moulded by visitors. That’s not to say it’s all minimalist. Exposed brick, low hanging lights and a long bar all add to the simply cool vibe of Wild Nectre. You might be looking at your winter time destination.
Boasting a great selection of beverages already, Dean tells us that requests for specific spirits, wines and beers will be welcomed.
But the venue can’t be pigeonholed into a box, opening at 7am, it’s a perfect venue for breakfast visitors, muffins, croissants and more on offer. Their lunch fare holds all the classics, schnitties, burgers, wraps and super salads.
If you’re not delving out of your office for lunch break, then head over after work for happy hour(s). Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 6pm (7pm on Friday), all house spirits, tap beers and a selection of wines for $6.
A drink after work isn’t quite satisfying on it’s own. Which makes their grazing platters and share plates the perfect accompaniment.
Wild Nectre opens today and since an overcast day in our books is a red wine kind of day, might be worth heading to Adelaide’s newest cafe, bar and dining space to try their fare.
Wild Nectre can be found at 193 Victoria Square, Adelaide, South Australia 5000.
