Adelaide's premier music venue, Fowlers Live, has been the home of local and international talent for years. With a growing gig guide, and a long list of upcoming events - Fowlers Live is the place to be for music lovers each and every weekend.
Located inside Adelaide's old Flour Mill, on North Terrace, within the entrance of the uni campus, and from the outside you can see why the venue has such character. Walk inside, and more character evokes, as the walls of the olden-style brick building are brought to life with old tour posters and merchandise from touring acts worldwide.
As you move into the main band room, you're instantly captivated by high ceilings and large stage – enough room for 550 people, and great to be in with it's sold out atmosphere. Enter back into the front bar, and you'll notice their mezzanine sitting area upstairs, where you can escape the sometimes uninteresting support acts, and have a drink on the couches before heading back downstairs to see the band you've all been waiting for.
Being an fully licensed venue, grab yourself a drink or two, at very reasonable prices, before jumping on the tram directly out the front to head home after a great night out.
