Adelaide’s hottest fringe pop-up Gin bar, Moxie, returns for another smashing season of the Fringe.
Located on the balcony over East Terrace Continental Café, Moxie is open for the entire fringe festivities.
The beautiful space is open and modern, with seating indoor and on the balcony, which overlooks the wonderful Garden of Unearthly Delights.
Moxie is a project made from a group of friends from all over the world who love Gin and love to create.
Bringing their own favourite flavours from their home countries, each member of Moxie enjoy experimenting and infusing those different flavours of fruits, spices and herbs to create their unique cocktails.
In partnership with Hendrick’s and ETC Café, the Moxie bar menu will feature food supplied by the Continental while serving up Hendrick’s as a base for their multiple cocktails; inviting customers to a whole new Gin experience.
Hendrick’s will also be sponsoring a range of exciting events at Moxie. The History of Hendrick’s and Cocktail Making Masterclasses and ‘Sneak Peaks into the Unusual’ where artists from across the Fringe Festival showcase tiny acts or talents in exchange for Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic.
This year Moxie has a focused theme on Asia, so their seven main Gin-based cocktails are each inspired by the seven seas of Asia.
But these cocktails are just the beginning, with Moxie focusing on creativity and offering up tailor-made drinks for every customer.
Whatever guests feel like on the night, Moxie will create something new; even if you suggest a mood or a feeling, they will try to make something unique to satisfy.
With over 40 unique infused gins each week, guests will be able to try something new upon each visit.
Customers can also order a range of cocktail jugs, craft beers, ciders and a handpicked bouquet of some of South Australia’s best wines.
Moxie doesn’t just offer up drinks, and have plenty of food options available for those who may also be feeling a bit peckish or want dinner before seeing a show.

Central to the bustling fringe festivities, Moxie is in the perfect location for customers to dine before a show or escape the colonial paradise between performances.
