Long lunches, after work cocktails or a Saturday night groove — we have a couple of hot venues in mind!
If you’ve got your finger on the pulse of Adelaide’s bar scene, there’s no doubt you’ve already paid a visit to these pumping places — Lady Burra Brewhouse and BCKYRD.
There’s a reason that these venues are unique, vibrant and offer something for every kind of person to enjoy — they’re both a product of love from the Kidd Retail Group. These guys know how to create the ultimate vibe, so let’s take a deep dive into what makes these party places shine.
A BREW OR TWO AT LADY BURRA
You know this team thinks outside of the box, given that they created Adelaide’s first full-blown microbrewery in the middle of the CBD! But what they’ve got to offer is oh-so-much more than beer.
Lady Burra is a huge space in Topham Mall, with a capacity for 300 people to eat, drink and be merry. You can book the entire venue out for an event (epic!), or you can pop in any day of the week for a bite to eat and a drink with your mates. The relaxed atmosphere makes it perfect for those long lunches, and during the week you’ll be chuffed to find some fab food specials. Prepare your tastebuds for traditional brewhouse fare, with a Portuguese twist! The Lady Burra chip paddle is a fun option to share, and the pizzas are amazing — but personally, we can’t go past the paella, it’s just too good!
For those who enjoy a drink, there are plenty of local SA wines to choose from, and the Lady Burra cocktails are incredible — choose from fruity, tangy or sweet flavours, ready to match your mood. And back to those beers for a jiffy, you can sample a few cold brews with the beer paddle or just reach for your favourite once again.
If you’re hunting for a taste of Lady Burra Brewhouse at home too, big news — you can now buy up big and take a few brewskis home with you, thanks to the brand new canning line that they launched in late 2022.
Most importantly, Lady Burra is oozing with good vibes. You can choose to sit inside and share the space with their famous mural and open wooden bar; take in the city in the outdoor area with cocktail in hand; or head to the slightly moodier side room for the DJ and some dancing on a Friday and Saturday night. Whatever your choice, Lady Burra is always up for a good time.
A backyard barbecue party in the middle of Peel Street? Genius! We once heard the story of a man who followed the smell of cooking sausages all the way from North Terrace just to end up at BCKYRD for a classic snag in bread at midnight.
Now, that’s what BCKYRD is all about! This laid-back venue is open from Thursday to Sunday, and you’re set to have the very best of times. The food offering is classic, with things like barbecued skewers and share platters on the menu. And trust us, when it’s late and you’ve been on the party train for a while, it really helps to keep the options simple and utterly delicious.
For the bevvy lovers, there are plenty of cocktails, wines, the latest and greatest seltzer range available, and Lady Burra beers on tap, and this indoor-outdoor space lets you drink it up in the sunshine, under the city lights or inside where the tunes are. If you’ve got the moves, get ready to groove, with a big dance floor and a great DJ laying down the tracks.
And why not throw a party at BCKYRD, like we did? Our Adelady party went off with a bang — this venue can fit 120 people for an intimate and easy-going vibe.
A little birdie told us that there are some BIG things coming from the Kidd Retail Group in 2023… and we’re pretty sure these new venues will shoot straight to the top of your list. So, keep your eye on their social pages for the grand reveal!
