Adelaide's Only Late Night Supper Club
The Propaganda Club is a luxurious late night supper club tucked away in the basement of Regent Arcade. From exquisite late night dining to long table lunches and intimate group gatherings, it's a refined space embodying the old world elegance and glamour of New York.

Created by Peter and Wendy Belosevic, former owners of Adelaide nightspot Zhivago, the décor features stunning architectural windows, French velvet upholstery and reclaimed parquetry floors. Overhead, ornate chandeliers bathe everything a soft ambient glow.
Late night dining is perfect to enjoy with a group of friends.
Descending from ground level you'll find the Soho Lounge, an intimate space to unwind, sip and share a plate or two with friends. A feature of the space is an impressively designed 55 seater continuous lounge that winds its way around the room.

Four individual hole-in-the-wall Sidecar Bars line the hallway linking the Soho Lounge and Manhattan Room. They're the perfect spot to gather your group or linger over a glass before you dine.

Intended for more formal dining, the Manhattan Room features cosy, intimate booths surrounding a tall communal table perfect for larger groups.

Here we enjoyed a lingering five-course meal starting with a plate of porcini mushroom croquettes served with a spicy tomato relish. This was followed by slices of salty haloumi paired perfectly with a tangy olive tapenade.

Next, a platter of the venue's signature snapper carpaccio with caviar and caper berries reached the table, each bite an intriguing blend of salty and sweet.

The pork belly dish was surprisingly light, served with pickled cucumber and crispy crackling on the side. It had a delicate flavour and melt-in-the-mouth texture.

For dessert, the vanilla catalan resembled a crème brûlée with freeze dried mandarin, fresh berries and the perfect crackly crust.
The full menu is available until 6.00am and features platters, tasting plates and sweet desserts presented with excellent table service. Created from fresh, seasonal South Australian produce, the dishes are perfect to share amongst a group of friends.
