Rent-free Bar and Kitchen on Hindley Street!

Facade of 97a Hindley St from street view

Ready to impress the good people of Adelaide with your hospitality concept? Become part of the exciting Hindley Street Music Hall precinct with this ready-to-go space!

The space

This modern hospitality space comes with all you need to launch your concept in the heart of Adelaide’s west end. With its concrete floors, curved industrial-style bar, stone benchtops and warm pendant lighting, it’s a blank canvas waiting to be brought to life.

The commercial kitchen comes complete with a wood fired pizza oven and stainless steel gas appliances including an 8-burner cooktop with oven, grills and hotplates.

The layout of the space offers flexibility, storage options and alternative service areas, as well as bifold windows allowing for streetfront service or takeaway.

The location

With its front and centre location in the Hindley Street Music Hall complex, this space offers activation potential in one of the city’s most exciting nightlife precincts. In addition to the organic foot traffic from the 100,000 punters who visit this iconic live music venue each year, you’ll be in good company with neighbours including Motherlode, Electric Circus, Rocket Bar, and Renew Adelaide graduate Ancient World.

Who you are

This space is ideal for a bar or kitchen concept that can put a fresh spin on the tenancy, bringing new energy to this nightlife and entertainment precinct. While suitable for either day or night-time activation, we’re especially keen to see a day-to-night operation that can diversify the current offerings in Adelaide’s west end. Given the service windows, it would perfectly suit a concept that offers a takeaway option.

Frequently asked questions


How does the Renew Adelaide program work?


We partner with property owners and agents to offer rent-free spaces to emerging businesses, allowing them to test their concept in the Adelaide CBD. You can read more about our program on the how it works page.


How long is the rent-free period?


This differs with each space but the minimum term is a 30-day rolling licence. This means the licence continues each month, up until you or the lessor chooses to end the licence, giving 30 days notice. In some cases, we can negotiate a fixed rent-free period with our property partner anywhere up to 12 months, depending on your concept and the property owner’s goals.


What is the benefit of being on the Renew program?


In addition to the rent-free space, Renew Adelaide acts as a support system for new ventures and can help in areas you might not have experience in – whether it’s budgeting, marketing, visual merchandising or legal. Becoming a Renew Adelaide venture also provides you with greater exposure through our marketing channels.


How do I apply for this space?


If you’re interested in this space, we recommend you come along to an inspection to ask any questions you might have. From there, you can submit an application form via our website. Visit how to apply for full details on the application process.


Can I apply without an inspection?


We strongly encourage you to attend an inspection, however, if you’re unable to attend you can still apply. If you are successful in progressing to the next stage of the application process we can arrange a private inspection.


I’ve missed the application deadline, can I still apply?


If you see a space online but have missed the application deadline, it’s best to reach out to us to see if we’re still able to accept your application.
