The LGBTIQ community in Adelaide is vast, vibrant and engaged. Events like the recent and totally fabulous Feast Festival are clear evidence of that; so we’ve wondered for some time now, why is it that we only have ONE gay bar?
Well all of that is about to change, and we at Glam cannot wait. Get set for the new upper East End cocktail bar, Mary’s Poppin, it is on its way!
It’s all whispers and hush hush right now about the exact location and theme, although we’re hoping for a Sex and The City-esque situation complete with Liza Minnelli performing Beyonce. Hey, we’re allowed to dream!
Whatever’s on the cards it’s bound to be good with Stephen Craddock at the helm. For those who don’t know, Stephen is responsible for events agency In The Dark. ITD has run some of the best events for the LGBTIQ community here in Adelaide, interstate and even in Asia. In fact if you’ve seen any of the queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race performing in SA, Stephen’s the guy you can thank.
The bar is set high with promises of a great cocktail list, brilliant drag performances and a great time for anyone who wants to experience the LGBTIQ community in Adelaide.
Rumour has it there is going to be a selfie room. Oh god yes!!! Just imagine the lighting! Plus there is word that even the toilet cubicles will have their own disco balls. Love it.
We’ve got our little birdies listening everywhere to get more details on this hot new spot, set to open at the end of this month. But for now watch their Facebook page and get to polishing your dancing shoes. They’re going to need diamontes.
