Weekdays: 5:30pm til late
Weekends and Public Holiday Monday: 2pm til late
Closed: Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12, Monday 17, Tuesday 18 June

A nod to the plush gin bars and cabaret clubs of years gone by, the QBE Cabaret Lounge invites you to immerse yourself in cabaret, indulge in a quick bite or a long chat, and get up close and personal with the festival.

Nestled in the QBE Galleries of Adelaide Festival Centre just steps away from key venues, it’s the perfect spot to grab a pre or post-show drink, meet friends and plan your next move.

Meet your gracious hosts Master Addison and Madam George (the Tranmere Twins) and enjoy free performances every weekend or settle into a quiet corner with a bottle of Pol Roger champagne and a grazing plate.

The QBE Cabaret Lounge is yours to explore.

We invite you to swing by
