If you’re looking to cool down this New Year’s Eve, the Old Royal has just the thing.
To ring in the New Year, the Old Royal will be having a Hawaiian theme party and The Irony performing.
Owner Steve Sliwka said they will also have the Rock Box until late - which plays any music patrons request.
“We decided to have a Hawaiian theme because it is fresh and it looks fresh,” he said.
“We’re out in the desert and it’s tired and burnt out, so we thought this would freshen things up.”
Steve said he wasn’t sure about the response they would get.
“It is a bit of a gamble, we don’t know how many people we will get as we haven’t done it before,” he said.
“We will be open until 2am but we will have a lock-in at about 12.30am.
“The beer garden will also be open.
“It will be nice and cool, we have great air conditioning - so come down for a good time.”
The Musicians Club will have local band LED Affected. Employee Leith Williams said the band will start at 8.30pm.
“The cocktail bar will be open, we will have seafood specials.
“We also have 30 booked in for dinner - which is really good and a lot of people have been RSVP on Facebook to the event.”
Leith said they were really popular last year when LED Affected performed.
“We’re hoping it will be the same this year,” he said.
The Musicians Club will be open until 1.30am and drinks will be served until 1am.
“We encourage people to come along for a great night to ring in the New Year.”
The Palace has entertainment by Static Rock.
“They will be playing from 9pm to 2am,” the Palace’s Esther LaRovere said.
“We will have the balcony open with nibbles and platters as well as the restaurant.
“The restaurant will be available downstairs and the new front bar is open.
“We have lots of bookings for the restaurant, but there are some earlier spots available.
“It will be a nice time to take the family out for dinner.”
Esther said the Palace had a nice evening last year.
“It was a really nice crowd last year and this will be the first year, we have the front bar available.
“The whole ground floor will be active. There will be drink and cocktail specials.
“Static Rock always put on a good show. They know how to kick up their heels.”
Esther said she and the staff at the Palace would like to wish everyone a great New Year’s.
“We look forward to seeing everyone in 2016.”
Adelaide band Baker Boys will be playing at the Democratic Club from 8pm.
They are voted one of Australia’s best party bands and play a range from the Top 40s to music from the 80s, 90s, old school rock and jazz.
Staff will dress-up in a ‘bad taste’ theme and members will be able to vote for their favourite staff costume.
Demo staff member Gabby Nace said the members theme is a masquerade ball.
“We will have masks and beads to giveaway to everyone in the club.
“There will be prizes for best dressed.
“There will be a balloon drop at midnight and a countdown from the band.”
Gabby said the evening is always lots of fun.
“We get about 200-300 people through the club and the Baker Boys are a really good band,” she said.
“We will be open until 1.30am.
“I encourage people to update their memberships to make entry easier and bring ID.”
