As the name would suggest, BRKLYN is Adelaide’s latest bar, inspired by the New York district.
BRKLYN is reminiscent of an establishment you may find on Adelaide’s hip Peel street, but despite this, BRKLYN certainly won’t have trouble standing out. BRKLYN features an in-bar, fully-functioning deli “the Sunshine Delicatessen”, a barbershop and a live DJ booth courtesy of Soundpond, placed door-by-door at the bars entrance.
Once you walk the short 5-meter stretch reminiscent of a 90’s main drag and enter the actual bar it’s all class. The low lighting and seating area complimented by the exposed brick and beam interior; all the brain child of Matiya Marovich of Sans-Arc studio, who has been responsible for the interior of other notable Adelaide establishments including Pink Moon Saloon and Gondola Gondola.
BRKLYN offer a range of house reds, whites and rose, 5 on-tap beers including Brooklyn lager and a personal favourite, Stone and Wood pacific ale. Their cocktail list boasts some NYC inspired classics with a twist such as the New York Sour, Watermelon Collins and the whisky based The Dreamer, mixed sugar syrup, ginger beer and lemon.
BRKLYN will be serving food Wednesday to Saturday, from Friday April 8th, and from the finger food they were offering at the launch, this has potential to be the bar’s most attractive feature.
BRKLYN can be found upstairs at 260a Rundle Street
