Adelaide’s favourite late-night haunt, Propaganda Club, has been revamped into Propaganda, a relaxed dining venue that is set to become your favourite watering hole and place to be seen.
The supper club idea has been replaced, with a major makeover of both the food and cocktail menus while remaining Adelaide’s most glamourous venue.
Head Chef, Jon Kimber, is the driving force behind the fabulous food the kitchen has been turning out. Having worked at top restaurants including Scott Borg’s The Smith in Melbourne and George’s on Waymouth, Jon’s years of culinary experience have come together to curate a menu that is reflective of his distinctive creativity, passion and flair for flavor.“Our food philosophy is all about experience – creating simple, flavoursome dishes designed for sharing, and paired perfectly with our premium selection of craft beers, local wines and creative cocktails,” says Jon Kimber. You can read our comments on the Propaganda Express Lunch Menu on this website, but this, our second invitation was all about their signature range of cocktails.
Propaganda’s expert mixologists have created a range of exclusive blends that are designed to be enjoyed alongside the five-for-$20 yum-cha offerings, or on their own as a delicious weekend celebration.
We started off with the quirkily named Dear Daisy, I Hate You, a delicate take on a daiquiri with a soft balance of White Rum, Soursob and Sweet Alyssum solutions. The result is a crystal clear cocktail with grassy and floral notes that allow the palate to explore the harmony of sweet and sour. Harper’s History is a rum version of a Manhattan with Gold Rum, Sweet Vermouth and Apple and Blackcurrant. Served short, the Blackcurrant and Gold rum is a winning combination, exuding a rich luxury with every sip. The light, summery Cherry Passion was a crowd favourite, White rum is offset with the delicious Applewood Cherrycello, and freshened with passionfuit pulp and lemon juice. Topped with lemon squash for sweetness the result is a long spritz cocktail with a sherbet fizz that is so easy to drink.
Finally, paying tribute to the resurgence in ‘sours’ of all kinds; The Book of Eli‘s frothy presentation combines Gin and Passionfruit liquor with Elderflower syrup for a refreshing, seductive balance.
In celebration of their Grand Opening, Propaganda will be offering a $20 lunch special and knock-off promotions featuring $6 pints, $7 wines and the cocktail of the week for just $12, during 4pm and 7pm.
With live DJs on Friday and Saturday nights, and the Propaganda Laneway open for an alfresco experience throughout Summer, the new Propaganda is the place to be throughout the warmer months and beyond.
Now open 7am – late most days, Propaganda is perfect for every long lunch, casual dinner, after work drinks or late-night cocktails.
