Loads of exciting ventures have been opening up on the corner of Frome and Grenfell in the CBD, centring around the iconic Crown & Anchor hotel. Starting with Midnight Spaghetti and Chateau Apollo, the final exciting development in this new hotspot is Roxie’s, taking over from where Superfish previously called home.
Though this venue has seen many reincarnations in its short life, Roxie’s has a more permenant residency, thanks to the renewed four-year lease on the space.
The decor is stripped-back and bursting with lush greenery, with plenty of seats and tables to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. The drinks menu is full of local offerings from SA brewers, distillers and wineries, with a few natural beverages to fit in with the popular trend.
Previous themes in this space have seen Mexican cuisine and a whole lot of seafood take centre stage. The latest adaption aims to switch things up a bit by offering modern-Australian cuisine. At the launch, we sampled crusty flatbreads and fresh oysters, however we’re promised slow-cooked meats and a whole lot of veggies are to be found on the full menu.
With the launch of this final venue at 188 Grenfell St, this spot has become the recipe for a good night out. Art exhibitions and functions at Chateau Apollo will draw you to this spot, combined with live music from the timeless Crown & Anchor. Midnight Spaghetti will keep you there for late-night pasta feasts, and Roxie’s will finish your night with casual drinks under the stars. We have no doubt in our minds that this new hotspot will garner as much success as Superfish, Little Miss Miami, Mexico and Dive Shop have before it.
