Comedy Show


Rhino Room


Girls love a guy who can make them laugh. Or, you know, at least take them somewhere where other people will make them laugh. Enter Rhino Room, one of Adelaide’s leading comedy clubs. Duck inside, grab a drink, and prepare to giggle at an ever-changing line-up of local, national and international stand-up stars. There’s even an open mic night if you’re feeling particularly brave.

“Brilliant venue. Very intimate. Ticket prices are extremely reasonable for the show that you get. Bar facilities available. Friendly staff. Close to Rundle Street so you can grab a meal before the show. Can’t wait to get back there again.” – 4chillis

The Kings Head


Snuggling up by the fireside is what winter is all about, and The Kings Head is quite possibly the cosiest place in town to do just that. The roaring fire is lit all day, every day throughout the colder months, so grab your sweetheart, pull up a seat, and crack open a bottle of wine. For bonus points, why not share a gooey fig pudding with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch syrup? That would melt our hearts, for sure!

The time went so quick, it is a cooking school that I would attend again.” – On / Off Electrical

And it is quite nice to see that someone in Adelaide doesn’t just treat you like a number in their business. They really want to teach people to dance, raise the standard of Salsa in Adelaide and have fun doing it!” – Matt_007
