Let us paint you a picture: you’ve had a big night and completely lost track of time, only to suddenly realise that it’s three in the morning and you’re starving.
Sound familiar? Well, we’ve all been there. But the days of turning to disappointing soggy chips from the 24-hour kebab shop are over. Adelaide’s very first supper club has just opened, and it is serving up your late night feeds in seriously swanky style. Like, we’re talking The Great Gatsby parties swanky.
The Propaganda Club has an old-world glamour feel from the second you step in the doors, with bespoke furniture specifically designed and custom made by South Australian craftsman. The menu is also a cut above, with dishes like beef tartare, snapper carpaccio, and other dishes you’ve only really heard about on MasterChef. There’s even champagne and caviar on offer – it’s hard to get classier than that! And with all food served until the club closes at 6am, you can channel your inner Leo DiCaprio no matter the hour.
We had a chat to the co-owner of The Propaganda Club, Petar Belosevic, to hear more of the good news!
Your menu is obviously the result of some really creative food aficionados, with dishes like the Snapper Carpaccio served with Caper Berries, Pickled Strawberries, Roe and Edible Flowers. How did the team pick the menu items?
My wife Wendy and I started planning our menu over 12 months ago. We really wanted to showcase South Australian produce in a share plate format. Our small plates are focused on plate presentation and unique techniques, while our large plates are protein based offerings with size and quality being the focus. Our entire food menu is designed for sharing and we also offer beautiful desserts as well.
What’s your favourite dish on the menu and why?
The Snapper Carpaccio is just so fresh and delicate, also you can’t go past the Steak Tartare in a Supper Club.
What do you recommend for a sensational food and drink pairing?
Sir Winston Churchill 2002 Champagne and Osteris Caviar with full accompaniments.
The beautiful design harks back to classy establishments of a bygone era. Who designed the space and where did you find inspiration for it?
Wendy Belosevic and I had a first drawing and vision for the space. We then engaged Proske Architects to help facilitate and bring our dream to life.
What advice would you give to someone who aspires to start up a business like The Propaganda Club?
Be prepared to risk it all.
