Marys Poppin, Adelaide

4.6
#22 of 30 in Nightlife in Adelaide
Mary’s here and she doesn’t like to knit or drink tea. Unless it’s a Schlong Island Iced Tea and knitting is code for a drag-show performance.

This eccentric new spot in the heart of the East End of Adelaide is a push against the trend of hip small bars. Cocktails are twists on once-cool classics like the Pina Colada and dancing is encouraged. Insisted on, even.

You won’t find any Tiesto or Darude here, just sweet-like-candy ’80s pop hits to have you boppin’ into the wee hours.

  • Drinks are a bit expensive but when the place gets going it's definitely worth it. The shows are amazing, the performers so talented you forget they aren't singing. Could use more space though.
  • Fantastic place with really lovely staff, the best cocktails in Adelaide. Quality drag queens who can put on a show. All the DJ's are really good at what they do and they all play great music and there's hardly a dull moment with the music. Plenty of unreserved places to sit as well.
  • I love this place so much I always have the best time. Really friendly atmosphere everyone is there to have a great time and because it’s a gay bar you don’t get any meatheads coming in trying to start a fight. #BeatTheGrind
  • A Nightclub of Gsy proportions. Not surprisingly straight people like myself can do here and have a good time. Music is great and the choices of cocktails is good too.
  • Friendly and welcoming staff and clientele and atmosphere in general. A fun place for gender-bending entertainment and acceptance, although overwhelmingly a 'millennial' generation venue.
