Hacienda, pr. hasi-enda, Spanish, noun, ‘house’.
Hacienda is the latest venue to emerge in Adelaide’s East End and for those who can’t decide between a small bar or a nightclub, then you are in luck because Hacienda offers both within the same walls.
On Friday night, Adelaide’s media crowd and V.I.P guests flocked to Synagogue Place to welcome Hacienda to the block.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the colorful and vibrant small bar, Dim Doolie which has plenty of seating space and interesting art pieces on the walls.
After the closing of much loved nightspots Little Miss Dive Shop and Crab Shack and with Adelaide’s small bar scene currently pumping, Hacienda aims to cater to many different preferences.
Owner Terry Board says, “I think what sets Hacienda apart from other venues is we have a small bar which can later transition into a nightclub and a 700 person capacity”.
“Hacienda is the main club space which includes the dance floor, a chill out area, a rooftop garden, a balcony which overlooks the dance floor along with a raised dance floor behind the DJ booth”.
The shimmering disco ball which hangs above the main dance floor is also the largest in the state.
With a drinks list which features cocktails based on fruity flavours and decadent desserts you can simply start at the top and work your way down.
Hacienda is the first Adelaide project accepted by internationally renowned designer Michael Delaney, who owns Melbourne hotspots The Bottom End and Sorry Grandma.
The venue also hopes to introduce food with a menu currently in development, expected to be finalized and available for guests before the summer season.
“It is a fun venue which we hope will cater for everybody,” says Terry.
Hacienda is open Friday and Saturday nights in Synagogue Place, Adelaide.
