HQ is back and better than ever
HQ is back and it's better than ever. After a ten month absence, when HQ closed their doors at 1 North Terrace, the premier nightclub has come back with a vengeance. However, this isn't exactly the HQ as you remember it. HQ has diversified and is now opening a new aspect of their business known as The Hindley. The Hindley is a brand new restaurant, bar and function space that looks to offer Hindley Street a trendy and exciting option to run small and large events.
The new Hindley/HQ offers four distinctive spaces to host various events. The venues range in guest capacity from 60 to 1000 guests with the entire building itself able to house up to 2,200 people. This new building is very much a multi-purpose space. With three floors the variety of The Hindley/HQ allows you to rent a space that meets your needs and produce the vibe and atmosphere to host any event you like.
If you want something a bit smaller, casual and welcoming have a look at The Hindley ground floor bar. This is where the main dining area is. The ground floor bar is a spacious area with plenty of tables available yet it in no way feels cramped. With two bars, an elevated booth area, and DJ space available this space is perfect for dinners and small to medium functions.
If you're looking for something a bit larger, have a look at the HQ Balcony or Mezzanine areas. These sites have somewhat more space and great views of either Hindley Street itself or the main HQ dancefloor. HQs soundproofing is state of the art, so regardless of which space you hire, you are guaranteed a private and personal event for you and your guests. If you are running events for a large company and want to go all out to impress your colleagues, look no further than the HQ Main Room. Easily the largest area in the venue, the Main Room has space for up to 300 seated and 1000 standing. With a large bar and 2 elevated areas to look out on to the action, this option is perfect for award dinners, product launches, album launches, cabaret shows and out of this world parties.
HQ has long been the leader in the nightclub scene and with these new ventures, The Hindley is looking to be successful in dominating a new market. The new spaces which the Hindley delivers greatly open the businesses age range and diversity. The look and feel of the place has been modernised and is something that can appeal to all different groups of people and other businesses. The Hindley/HQ is stylish, clean, crisp and more versatile. It even still has the smell of a brand new building. HQ has prided itself on being the best Adelaide has to offer and The Hindley is no different.
Obviously, it's not enough to have an outstanding venue. The food and drinks have to match the aesthetic. Well The Hindley/HQ has that in spades. It offers a wide selection of delicious and carefully crafted dishes. From canapes, buffets and set menu options, The Hindley has a plethora of food options made to cater to anything from nibbles for smaller parties to 3-course meals for red carpet dinners. They have drinks packages to match of course. You can choose from Standard and Premium packages, bar on consumption, or a bar tab. The menu and bar selection is incredibly extensive to allow you to mix and match to your liking.
As mentioned before, this isn't the HQ as you remember. Everything has gone over and above into creating a complex that is much more than just a nightclub and I'm happy to advise that it is a great success. The look and feel of The Hindley/HQ is unlike anything Hindley street has had to offer before. HQ looks to still be the club everyone loves and where everyone wants to be and with the addition of The Hindley, 149 Hindley Street strives to be an entertainment powerhouse the likes of which Adelaide has never experienced before.
HQ on maximum overdrive.
Whether it be for a night on the town, a small private function or a large corporate event, come down to The Hindley/HQ and experience the new age of the premium Adelaide club and function experience.
