Glam’s Guide To Adelaide Fringe Pop-Up Bars


If you are looking for a pop-up bar this Fringe season, well then let us reassure you that there are oh so many around our city. With plenty inside the Garden of Unearthy Delights, as well as all around the precinct, your desire for gorgeous drinks in funky new locations will well and truly be met.

To help you out, we have complied a list of pop-up bars in and around the Fringe area. So get set to have many gorgeous nights out enjoying the Fringe as you bump into these beauties.

The Glass House. At National Wine Centre.

For the first time ever, the National Wine Centre will be an official Fringe venue. Adelaide Fringe revellers are expected to pour into the Centre to attend shows and experience its pop-up bar, The Glass House. From theatre to music, comedy to cabaret, the Centre will host about fifty shows and the new pop-up bar will provide a unique opportunity for guests to experience the Fringe in a new and exciting space. See our article here for more information.

Moxie. On the balcony over East Tce Continental Café.
Adelaide’s newest gin bar, Moxie, is retuning for another stellar season. This infused gin bar is returning in 2018, in partnership with Hendrick’s and ETC Cafe. Think: tropical and dangerous flavours from across the Asian jungles, lovingly crafted into your own clairvoyant cocktail. This pop-up bar offers a little oasis of Fringe tranquillity.

Doors are open for #adlfringe2018 – see you this weekend beautiful people 😘

Gin & Phonic. Rundle St, Adelaide. 
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Fringe, we know where we are headed. Rundle Street will be transforming into a fresh summer pop-up venue for Gin and Phonic, hosted in the NOLA laneway. Think Australian summer vibes, mixed with live local acts, local music, and of course, local gin. All in a pumping summer outdoor venue. Check out our story here for more details.
Club Cubano. At Mr Goodbar.

Say welcome to Club Cubano, a Cuban-themed pop-up bar! From February 10th to March 18th, you can prepare to be transported to the positively intoxicating streets of Havana without stepping out of the East End, and you can thank Mr Goodbar for turning 2 for this paradise. Open from 7:30pm, be sure to stop on by. See our story here for more information.

TJ’s Bar & Grill. Adelaide Migration Museum.
This is a pop-up bar… on a bus. A modified ‘bendy bus’ (to be exact). With an amazing open air roof, three bars of craft beer, fine wine and spirits, as well as a great selection food and live music, this pop-up bar is a must see. For more details, see our article here.
Lot 14 Pop-Up. Former Royal Adelaide Hospital.
There’s a new kid on the terrace, Lot 14: the newest East End spot this festival season. Select from a fabulous range of South Australian beer, wine, cider and gin, Instagram worthy platters, free live performances and more. You’ll be able to join friends on long tables or roll out a picnic rug on the grass and lay underneath a canopy of fairy lights while you enjoy gorgeous food and drinks. For more information, head here.
Tiger Mountain. Outside Exeter Hotel. 
Tiger Mountain is a pop-up bar open every Friday Saturday and Sunday of Fringe from about 5pm. Mark Kamleh has organised a fresh line-up of people offering food options this year, including Blackwood and Orana chef Jock Zonfrillo, as well as Low & Slow. The Low & Slow legends started as a food truck working the streets and festivals of Adelaide for years. This is just another great opportunity to bring their outstanding food back to the streets. With a menu like no other as well as drinks on offer, make sure to stop on by.
Fringe Gin Garden. Electra House Hotel.

For all of the best drinks in one place, Electra House’s Fringe Gin Garden will be a must-see this Fringe. Featuring twenty-two different gins over the month with a different feature gin & tonic available for $8 everyday, there will be more reason than ever to stop on by. Adelaide favourites such as Never Never, Settlers, 78 Degrees and Applewood will all be there, along with some of Australia and the world’s best.

With all of these pop-up bars hitting our streets, you will be completely excused for heading out to the Fringe every night of the week.
