It's not just a feast, it's an experience
Adelaide's most stunning hotel lounge bar has introduced a fantastic new experience that is a real feast of the senses. With COVID restrictions putting an end to mass grazing tables and high tea towers – The Playford Hotel on North Terrace in Adelaide has introduced a whole new level of dining.
There's nothing I enjoy more than catching up with friends over great wine and food – the conversation, the laughter and the memories created around fully laden meze platters in Greece or delectable antipasto in Italy. It's no wonder many cultures celebrate food and wine events as a way of coming together and socialising. When I discover a place with great food, atmosphere and value for money, it becomes my regular catch up place with friends, and The Playford Hotel will certainly be on my radar in Adelaide.
With shared grazing tables and high tea towers belonging to pre-COVID times, personal service is now the order of the day at The Playford Hotel. You can enjoy a stunning array of delicacies on their own personal charcuterie board, a savoury platter and an exquisite 'just for you' desert tray. Your own personal grazing platter! It's called The Playford Feast, and perfect for a leisurely weekend afternoon catch up with friends.
The atmosphere is important when dining, and admit I enjoy life's little luxuries! The hotel lounge is absolutely gorgeous - five star all the way. Its architecture and design inspired by the city of love - Paris. Art deco design with curving balconies, vine-etched facades and deep, striking colour schemes - the work of Art Nouveau designers. The hotel named after former Premier Sir Thomas Playford, also features assets and artwork from locals.
The table styling is exquisite. Not only is the Playford Hotel locally owned, the 'feast' itself features local produce.
The 'five-star feast' in 'five-star luxury' is truly an experience. My friends couldn't stop raving about how much they enjoyed the get-together and experience something different. Just when I thought things couldn't get better, it was fantastic to hear some live music - something I haven't heard for nearly six months! It's wonderful to see the hotel support local talent, the music adding another dimension to the atmosphere and whole experience.
The Playford Hotel stands on one of Adelaide's most beautiful and cultural tree-lined boulevards. There's easy access to car parking opposite the hotel, and within walking distance to many attractions. Perfect to pop in before a weekend footy match or matinee theatre show.
We're lucky in Adelaide to be able to enjoy these kinds of experiences over our interstate counterparts. Yes, times have changed, and we need to make an effort to get out more, experience more, and support local more. It's surprising how good it makes you feel - and don't we all need that right now.
Perfect for get-togethers and upcoming Father's Day.
