Adelaide’s Best Fringe Venues: Part 2

Blog Picture

It’s only February and we are already in the thick of March Madness here in Radelaide. With so much happening in our fabulously festive city, we’ve decided to do what we do best and help guide you towards some of the best venues and offers of the Adelaide Fringe with our weekly “Adelaide’s Best Fringe Venues” list. With this trusty guide you’ll be able to keep your finger on that ever racing pulse.


Prancing pony

Why do we love this venue?

No longer are the Adelaide Hills a playground for just wine tasting, berry picking, and German novelties (although all those things are fab), they also have an incredibly strong craft brew game.

Prancing Pony are our prize ponies *rolls eyes* for well rounded and full flavoured crafty brews. This may be attributed to the fresh hills air, traditional german brew skills or the genius of their head brewer, Frank. Either way, the brewshed is a brilliant spot to taste a few Prancing Pony beers paired with some regional foodie delights & a brewery tour, or to simply sit back and relax with a malty bevvie in hand.

Black DiamondWhy do we love this venue?

Hello, it’s both a tattoo studio AND a Fringe venue! The crew at Black Diamond Tattoo not only offer tattooing and laser removal, but they use the studio space for exhibitions on a regular basis throughout the year.

This Fringe, they are showcasing the work of 30 of SA’s finest Tattoo Artists on synthetic tattooable shaped limbs. Yep, you read that right… they actually look like real tattooed hands, arms and feet! This is something completely new to the Adelaide arts and tattoo scene, and is definitely worth checking out.

la boheme

Why do we love this venue?

I’m not going to lie, for me it’s all about the sexy burlesque ladies who shimmy, shake, and keep folks laughing’n’lusting all year round that draws me back time and time again to La Boheme.

Aside from the gorgeous gals, as Adelaide’s Parisian Salon de Cocktail, La Boheme offers something a little bit classy and European. The rich velvet curtains, golden cornices and deep colour palate all add a little sumthin’sumthin’ to build a world for the predominantly cabaret, jazz and blues acts that grace the stages. Team these aesthetics with some of the finest cocktails in Adelaide and you’ll feel you’ve had quite the decadent night out.

Located in the heart of the East End arts district, Nexus Arts has flourished from a multicultural artists’ collective, to a venue and community that is not only a performing arts space and gallery, but a host to artist residencies and cultural development programs throughout the year.

Nexus Arts celebrates and supports the exact cultural diversity that has shaped Adelaide into the home of the amazing festivals and foodie deliciousness we Yelp Adelaide folks live for and it is for that reason that we regard them as one of Adelaide’s Best Fringe Venues!

SOUTH AUSSIE PRIDE, BABY! These guys are the first and only SA only pub… yep, all their beer, wine and food produce is from our fine festive state. Plus, they have amazing relationships with SA’s best microbreweries. So if there’s anything weird and wonderful happening in the Adelaide craft beer scene, The King’s Head is sure to have a keg of it.

Add to all that some of the most down to earth and passionate bar staff in the business and you have yourself a magical Adelaide brewskie oasis… it’s no wonder The King’s is a favourite local watering hole of those south side city dwellers.
