At the recent Australian Hospitality Awards, Adelaide's own Republic took out the title for 'Australia's best outdoor area'.
Previously The Oriental, the newly renovated hotel is an oasis for the senses; with an ever-changing and expansive drinks list, a delectable bar and restaurant menu, and of course some funky fresh decor. Compared with the previous site, the Republic is now more open, modern and chic, providing a place for punters to eat, drink and party throughout the week.
As much as the Republic has a lovely ambience indoors, the beer garden is where it's at. During summer, it is guaranteed to go off, with booth seating, greenery and an abundance of space, whilst the retractable roof and outdoor wood fire turns those rainy days in the beer garden, into the cosiest of places. The combination of bricks, tiles and colour gives the space an eclectic feel, with striped cushions, checkered pillows and wooden stools adding to the mix.
