What do you get when you combine a club with a small bar, captivating cocktails, great service and laneway location? Haçienda, of course! Opening its doors to the public on June 4, Haçienda will be combining the best bits of a club and small bar, while remaining to be two very different areas of the venue.
Housed underneath Synogogue Place's latest resident Mary's Poppin, Haçienda brings punters into an eclectic, gathered and culturally inspired space. Renowned Melbourne and Sydney designer Michael Delany saw the venue and immediately thought of Spain, hence the name Haçienda was born. The space has plenty of unique features, such as the large collection of vintage matchboxes that make up the bar, along with a rustic herringbone brick floor.
Heading around the corner of the bar, you'll find a little secluded booth tucked away under the stairs, and a door leading to the club that fits 400 or so people. South Australia's largest mirror ball hangs above the dance-floor, another quirky and exclusive feature that has transformed the space.
Haçienda will have a much different vibe compared with their upstairs neighbour, playing pop, RnB & funk music from the 90's all the way through to today.
If your feet are sore from all the dancing, don't worry... they have that covered too. Intimate booths that fit no more than 4-6 people overlook the dance-floor, while the lighting display holds a unique and eye-catching aesthetic.
As Delany's first ever Adelaide project, we are sure to see many elements of the venue that you would find interstate. "I have been on both sides of the dance floor for many, many years but have designed owned and operated clubs like honkytonks, Sorry Grandma!, Survivor! and others in Melbourne and Sydney for over 20 years. I currently run 77, in Sydney," says Delany.
Simply put, Haçienda is going to be the perfect mix of a club and small bar all under one roof! We can't wait to get our groove on.
Where: 5 Synagogue Pl, Adelaide.
When: Opening on Saturday, June 4.
