As Cabaret stars from around the world visit our town for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, the Cabaret Fringe is presenting local talent in cabaret venues around the city. One of the new venues this year is Harry’s Bar, a heritage listed pub in the heart of Adelaide.

Located at 12 Grenfell St, the upstairs heritage-listed Tatersall’s club (opened in 1879) is equipped with dance floor, dining area, balcony and a performance space that seats a hundred guests.

The bar debuted as a performance space with great success during the Adelaide Fringe this year and now freelance Marketing Manger and local comedian, Marcel Blanch- de Wilt, is attempting to recreate that success by transforming the bar into a Cabaret Venue with nightly entertainment.

‘It’s a brilliant performance space and the thousands of people who visited during the Adelaide Fringe thought it was beautiful,’ says Marcel Blanch-de Wilt, ‘Most of them had never visited Harry’s Bar before; it was our little secret and now we want to share it with the Cabaret crowd.’

The venue is playing host to two Cabaret Fringe shows, Tears, Beers and Beautiful Girls: A Musical Survival Guide, a show about dating in Adelaide as a twenty-something male and the intriguingly titled Depression: The Musical which includes true stories about coping with mental illness.

Harry’s Bar is celebrating the start of festive month with an Opening Night Party on June 1st featuring live bands, show previews, drink specials and a cabaret-themed dance party. Everyone is welcome and admission to the event is only $5.
