The Fringe's juke joint

Roses & Rye, a self-proclaimed dive bar, is currently located at the East End of Rundle Street for the duration of the Adelaide Fringe.

The festival hotspot is the brainchild of Shaun Pattinson, who chose to close his celebrated bar, 'Cushdy,' after 5 years of success and acclaim in late 2013. At the time Pattinson noted he wanted a fresh start.

With Roses & Rye, Pattinson has left the cocktail lounge scene behind and has embraced the informal 'dive bar' - where beer and whiskey flow and practically anything goes - "we're here for a good time, not a long time" so says the motto.

The eclectic decor is an unabashed celebration of Americana and popular culture and each night there are bar specials and theme nights; a few regular highlights include "Band T-Shirt Tuesday"; where you can don your favourite band t-shirt and get $2 off all drinks (the more embarrassing the t-shirt, the better) and 'Wizard Stick Wednesday" - an unusual drinking game which requires its players to stand tall!

Come down to Roses & Rye after the checking out the Fringe events each evening; take a seat on the couch and catch a flick; have a game of ping-pong or darts between drinks; play your favourite tune on the jukebox; or just have one of their famous 'Bourbon Milkshakes'.

The Roses & Rye Pop-Up Bar is open from 4pm till late every night until Sunday 16th of March, 2014.

You can check out all the latest specials and events at the official Roses & Rye Facebook page.
