We have truly high expectations when it comes to our local. With first-rate eats, award winning grog and an array of venues across our great city, it can take a lot to to knock our socks off. Luckily for us, old time favourite The Bartley Hotel is back with a bang, following its million-dollar redevelopment. Designed to showcase the best in South Australian producers, wineries, breweries and artists, the regeneration breathes new life into 1970s venue, once known as The Leg Trap. The spanking new venue fit out sets the stage for Adelaide’s thriving cultural scene and it’s got us thirsty for more.
The fresh redevelopment sees a new restaurant, patio dining area (complete with open fire pit for those frosty Adelaide nights), bar, sports bar, gaming room and function space. Creating the perfect backdrop to enjoy a meal from The Bartley’s stellar menu, or chill out for Friday knock-offs, the refurbishment is a stark contrast from its days as The Leg Trap. The dream team behind the fit-outs of leading hotels including The Moseley Bar & Kitchen and The Woodcroft Hotel, ABEO Designs & Studio Nine have done a stunning job of relaunching a local fave.
Enthusiastic about all things South Australian, Venue Manager Andrew John says, “The iconic local has been reinvigorated and has returned with a fresh new look. We want you to embrace the good things with delicious food, great wine and fantastic entertainment.”
Central to the venue’s re-invigoration, food is a major player at The Bartley. The new menu boasts unique items that see a spin on classic pub cuisine. Offering fresh alternatives to the standard chicken schnitty, The Bartley’s food offering is innovative yet familiar.
Also integral to The Bartley’s philosophy is the support of great local talent. Boasting incredible musicians, Adelaide is renowned for its up-and-coming music scene and gig circuit. In a nod to The Leg Trap’s live music nights of the 1970s, The Bartley is bringing live music to West Lakes every Friday and Sunday, with DJs on Saturday, to harness our abundance of local musicians.
